Green Tea Frappè with Tapioca

Green Tea Frappé

Mason jars have just opened a whole new world to me. It’s crazy the amount of desserts or drinks you can make in them! They also end up looking ten times nicer, because the mason jar just adds this special effect to any photo. Well, asides from the mason jar, the green tea is definitely a winning flavor. It tastes perfect in just about anything- macarons, ice-cream, cake, and even lattès. Any bakery that serves this flavor instantly earns five stars from me haha. If you have not tried this flavor before, it would probably be a good idea to get that on your priority list. Usually I’m a regular with the “green tea” bubble tea served at tapioca houses, with the “thai tea” bubble tea coming in to a close second. I have also tried the green tea frappuccino from Starbucks, but I was disappointed with it. It felt that it was too sweet and had too much ice, like most of their drinks. Check below to see how to make this one of a kind green tea frappuccino!

-Green tea matcha powder can be found at a local Chinese grocery store or at amazon where I bought mine

-The matcha will be a little bitter, but the vanilla syrup or extract will cover up that bitterness
