    Matcha Latte Art

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi There,

    So I found myself inthe weird but unusual section of youtube and came across this.

    Matcha, unusual I thought, interesting to see what its like. Never seen anything like this in Australia, although I havent visited all the cafes in Oz. Did a quick google search to see if it was sold in Australia, and couldent find any major suppliers of it. Has anyone else come across this, if so what was it like? Is there different varies that can be used for milk based drinks, a nice blue one would be cool :-)

    Heres the link on youtube.

    hahaha...smartass!

    Ive already checked wiki, ok maybe asking if it came in blue was a blonde moment, what I meant was, I wonder if there were different varietes oppposed to just green tea.

    You can probably find Matcha in speciality tea shops (the guy I get my tea from uses it to make very yummy ice cream) or you can make it yourself. Basicly its dry Green tea leaves, that have been crushed/pulverised to make a dust. There are two general varieties, from my understanding, Chinese, and Japanese. Mostly its based on the type of green tea that is used to make it. (and yes, you can use any type of green tea to make an acceptable matcha)

    Or just buy matcha powder?* :P

    P.S. there are many many MANY cafes in sydney cbd alone that sells it.. pretty much any of those asian "milk tea" places... e.g. chatime, easyway, azuma cafe, etc.

    Hi Guys,

    I love Matcha! I have scoured the streets of Sydney in search of this amazing drink and have found a great brand Zen Green Tea Matcha Green Tea Powder and also a crappy green tin match in asian branding. The Zen Green Tea one is the best quality and I called the Sales girl and she said they are stocked currently in : Hoochie Mamas Newtown cafe, Health Emporium Bondi, Bondi Asian Minimart Bondi Junction, Bayside Health Double Bay, Chinese Ginseng and Herb Co Haymarket. She also says they have flat rate $5 delivery anywhere in Australia so I just bought their large bag at $39.95 but it will last me like three months! I made an awesome matcha latte with it at home and i also do face masks.

    As a note of caution - make sure that if you buy it from the Asian grocers you buy the Matcha itself and not the "Matcha Lattte" powder, which is essentially the equivalent of nescafe (a pre-sweetened, desiccated milk added tea mix).

    The picture above is the correct type (sticks of matcha).
    Although I would suggest that a small tin of nicer stuff might be better (less of an issue if making "Matcha Lattes"). Some tea shops will probably sell the tin, whisk and bowl together (I am spoilt living in Japan).

    Smile I found an awesome Australian matcha seller!

    Hi,

    I love matcha lattes- so good for winter warmth! I wanted to enjoy them at home and so i searched for a good seller. I ordered from Zen Green Tea (zengreentea.com.au) they sent me a two month supply at a pretty great price- free shipping too. I have been using this matcha to mix up lattes, hot teas and bake with it. Tastes so good! What do you think is the best cafe matcha latte in the city?
