Lattes don’t always have to be a calorie-dense drink, they can be delicious & healthy too!

If you enjoy a nice Green Tea Latte, then you will love our MATCHA COCONUT LATTE! We blend our Organic Grade A Matcha with one of our popular green teas, Coconut Spring (Chinese & Japanese green tea, shredded coconut, & natural coconut extract).

  2. Strain out tea leaves, and sweeten tea with honey.
  3. Add 1/4 TSP of Matcha powder to Matcha bowl ( or any small bowl) and add about 1 oz of steeped Coconut Spring to it.
  4. Whisk tea mixture with a bamboo whisk in “Z” formation until bubbles start to form on the surface (this will indicate the Matcha is fully dissolved).
