Think of a coffee shop but instead of coffee, it's all MATCHA. MatchaBar in NYC delivers the goods when it comes to quality matcha drinks and snacks.

Run by brothers Max and Graham Fortgang, MatchaBar in Williamsburg is the first sing-concept matcha experience around. They serve their own brand of matcha sourced directly from an independent family farm in Nishio, Japan. Offering matcha tins in two grades: MatchaBar Classic and MatchaBar Premium, their top-notch products' beautiful, electric green color is a true testament to its excellent quality.

Matcha has an earthy full-bodied flavor, with a creamy texture, natural sweetness, and a strong umami after-taste. This Japanese powdered green tea is stone-ground from the topmost leaves of the first harvest of a green tea crop. It is potent with caffein and is used by many to enhance focus, energy, and alertness. Read up on the health benefits of this special ingredient.

We met with co-owner Graham who gave a sampling of some of MatchaBar's most popular drinks-- from their matcha shot, to their almond-milk lattes, to their iced matchas, each drink was more delicious than the next. If you're into matcha, you will LOVE this place. Many people have switched from coffee to matcha because of it's incredible health benefits and boost of long-lasting energy... definitely #glow approved.
