You may already know that I’m a huge matcha fan. Honestly, I’m not even sure how this obsession started. All I know is that I love anything with matcha, aka green tea. Come to think of it, I think it started with my obsession with matcha ice cream and probably macarons. The flavor has a slight sweetness that I enjoy and weirdly crave. Matcha has become very popular in the past year or two. Many bakeries are coming up with many unique matcha deserts and if you’re a matcha fan. New York has it all! Here’s a list on where to find matcha in New York City.
