Have you joined the matcha revolution yet?
Despite growing popularity, many remain unaware on what matcha is and the positive benefits that can come from drinking it. Originating from China, matcha is a type of powdered green tea that is rich in antioxidants. Naturally caffeine free and low in calories, matcha may help reduce the risk of heart disease as well as help in aiding weight loss, relaxation and alertness.
Matcha lattes are slowly popping up on the menu across coffee shops in Liverpool. We’ve scouted out the best matcha in The Baltic Triangle so that you don’t have to.
New to the area, Artisane is a beautiful patisserie, bakery, and sandwicherie that sources their matcha from local independent and female led company @pinkpandamatcha.
For those who really love it, they can now make Pink Panda Matcha from at home by purchasing from their range in store. Matcha is available to purchase at the Artisane located in Childwall.
Slightly obscured from view, Thoughtfully Café is a small café tucked away on Cleveland Square, Liverpool. It is the perfect space for a solo matcha date or productive workday, and if you fancy something a little different, they are known for their beautiful latte art too.
