Peppermint, a popular herb in Western herbalism, adds a refreshing twist to the rich and earthy flavor of matcha.
    Health Benefits
    : Matcha is renowned for its health benefits. It's packed with antioxidants, particularly catechins like EGCG, which are known for their cancer-fighting properties.

    Vibrant Color
    : Matcha is famous for its vibrant green color, which comes from the high levels of chlorophyll present in the leaves. When mixed with the creamy texture of a latte and the hint of bright peppermint, it creates a visually appealing and Instagram-worthy beverage.
    Versatility
    : Peppermint Matcha Lattes can be enjoyed hot or cold, making them a versatile drink suitable for any season. They can also be customized according to personal preference, such as by adjusting the sweetness or adding dairy or non-dairy milk alternatives.
