Cha Cha Matcha



Cha Cha Matcha is a matcha café with a few shops in LA and New York. We visited the flatiron location for some post gym fuel! The space inside is so beautiful so of course I had to have a photo shoot (I mean how could you not take a million photos in this gorgeous pink space). I learned a lot about Matcha along the way thanks to the awesome posters inside and the super friendly staff.

Matcha is a vibrant green powder milled from green tea leaves from Japan. It results in caffeine like energy and lots of antioxidants (think defence against heart diseases etc). You can infuse matcha into just about anything including hot beverages, pastries, candy and cocktails. 

We ordered a matcha chai to share which is one of their more popular drinks! It is essentially their home made chai mixed with milk and matcha. The taste was very smooth – not as bitter as I was expecting – with a great balance of spices. They also offer seasonal drinks such as matcha with hibiscus, rose hips and bee pollen or lavender honey mixed with collagen and blue algae. We weren’t feeling super adventurous but maybe next time!
