5 Places for Drinking Good Matcha in Milan
In Milan, the drink of the moment seems to be matcha tea: thanks to its particular taste, the bright color and various properties, including those of infusing energy, endurance and concentration, this type of Japanese green tea is a big success here, both in the ‘traditional’ tea version (mixed with boiling water), and in the latte one (mixed with milk). If you love it too, or you simply want to try it, today we talk about 5 nice places where you can drink (or eat) some good matcha in Milan!
