So I found out I live 50m away from this place! Now that is either really good or really bad! The good thing is that I can go there all the time and have the B.E.S.T. matcha in Copenhagen, bad because I will leave all my money there haha! Once again we had a little meet up with Rose I wanted to see her before I left to Barcelona. Ever since I met her I have found so many cool new places- since she is half vegan she has a totally different type of places she goes to!
Yesterday we went to the Matcha Bar in Vesterbro. I knew of matcha before but I never made it at home or anything! It was more just something I would have when I went out. But I think that is going to change. I got a matcha vanilla latte and it was so good! Rose got matcha gløgg and we shared a matcha cookie! One of the things I like about the Matcha Bar is the amazing interior! The whole place is white with small details and a wall covered with cactuses.
What is matcha? Well, it is a green powder that you mix with a liquid. It has a funny color tho! For some reason it reminds me of frogs :D! But what it really is: it is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea. You usually mix a teaspoon of matcha with a third of a cup of hot water, which you then whisk with a bamboo brush. It offers a lot of health benefits, besides having a lot of vitamins and minerals it is rich on antioxidants that enhance bloog sugar regulation, blood pressure and anti-aging. Matcha also contains caffeine, but since it is natural it is supposed to create a "alert calm" rather then get you all hyped up.
If you have never tried matcha you really should! If you are in Denmark make sure to check out Byoh.dk (it is a shortcut for Be Your Own Hero). Their products are of the highest quality and if you stop by the Matcha Bar the founder of Byoh - Michael will explain to you everything you need to know! Have a nice Sunday and drink matcha!!
