What is green, comes with plenty of health benefits and has a strong vegetal taste? Matcha, of course! For the uninitiated, matcha is a type of premium Japanese green tea that is mostly harvested in Japan. It is highly sought after in many Japanese restaurants and bakeries that use the powder for beverages, desserts and baked goods.
Matcha is said to be packed with plenty of antioxidants and helps to calm the body and mind. In fact, research shows that matcha powder is actually better than loose tea leaf as it gives you more vitamins and minerals.
Beyond all its health benefits, many of us enjoy matcha simply because it tastes wonderful! Being such matcha addicts, nothing lifts our mood better than a matcha soft serve, matcha latte or matcha soufflé. If you agree with us, here are 7 Matcha Cafes In Singapore You Have To Check Out. READ ON

Matcha might be a passing trend to some but die-hard enthusiasts of Matcha will prove you wrong, especially when specialised Matcha cafes such as Maccha House are still garnering a steady crowd on a daily basis.
Besides bursting with health benefits, Matcha also tastes unbelievably good and acts as a flavour enhancement to both sweet and savoury dishes. Maccha House serves an array of Japanese-style savoury mains (think udon and rice bowls), but we say skip the mains, and dive right for their amazing desserts.
A good matcha latte is a definite staple drink for all matcha lovers.
