Day 1: Vanilla Plum Cake Matcha Latte
Simple yet delicious, this caffeinated Vanilla Plum Cake Matcha Latte is perfect for a cold winter morning or afternoon pick me up. This creamy delight only requires a few simple ingredients and is great for when you're in the mood for a warm and cozy beverage with a caffeine kick.
Matcha, a form of green tea, has lots of great benefits. Typically, matcha is whisked with hot water using a matcha whisk or something similar. Rather than using hot water, we decided to use some fresh steeped Plum Cake tea - and we found a matcha (get it?) made in heaven! Combinations of vanilla matcha and warm holiday plum cake create a festive and flavorful matcha latte, perfect for bringing holiday cheer!
