Tea lovers and coffee addicts are usually at odds, but recently, the two camps have been bonding over the same very Instagrammable drink: matcha. Meaning “powdered green tea,” matcha is a green tea made from leaves that have been grinded into a fine powder, and then mixed with hot water — though you can also have it iced, if that’s more your thing. You can either drink it as is, or add milk for a sweeter matcha latte.

Traditionally, drinking matcha was part of Chinese and Japanese ceremonies, but now it is an everyday drink (though koicha, a thicker, pastier matcha is still typically reserved for special ceremonies.)
