Food Trip Friday---Matcha, I Lurve!!

---Starbucks Discoveries Kyoto Matcha Latte---

I had this 'matcha boom' drinks during the summer---my great alternative to coffee-based drinks. Some may not like the ' horo nigai ' ( literally means a lil bit bitter ) experience of matcha because of it's 'misunderstood taste' but you can now enjoy for some modern drinks--sweetened and less bitter than the standard matcha like matcha lattes, matcha frozen drinks and some other blends. Give matcha a try, I think you will love it too! ^_^
---Matcha Au Lait with Kuro Mitsu Jelly-- I love the bitter taste of the matcha and the delightful sweetness of dark brown syrup jelly. A limited-time drink from Mister Donuts---
---Pon De Matcha Milk Crunch-- so crunchy in the inside and mochi texture in the outside coated with matcha chocolate---
---Matcha Au Lait Milk Jelly, another limited-time Green Tea Drink----

An entry for Food Trip Friday. Chibugan na!!\(^0^)/

@Mrs.Kolca:Matcha is a green powdered tea,sis.Traditionally,green powdered tea is prepared with hot water and is mixed together.Healthy medyo mapait nga lang.If you're not into bitter,I would recommend matcha blends like those drinks as my entry.

I think I saw the same thing in our local grocery store here, because they are also selling SB brand coffee and latte.
Happy weekend sis!

That is very interesting. I do hope there's something like that here in the Philippines.
