10 Creative Ways to Order Matcha in Los Angeles

Are you even a Californian if you don’t have an oat milk matcha latte in hand? Matcha is the “it” drink with many health benefits. It boosts metabolism, is full of antioxidants, reduces risk of cancer, blah blah blah! Long story short, it is crazy good for you, but let’s be honest, we all love it for the flavor and photo ops! What you may not know is that there is a whole world of matcha outside of your typical latte. Here are ten different ways to find the gorgeous green tea in LA!
