Have you ever tried matcha like this before?

- Have you ever tried matcha? Or is it been there, done that, already drank it? The craze for this healthy, but bitter, green tea powder isn't losing steam, so people are introducing more and more creative ways to drink- and eat it.

Fox 5 New York’s Christal Young sampled an irresistible sweet at Bibble and Sip. They sell out of 1,700 of these matcha cream puffs every day.

If that makes you thirsty- or hungry for more, you can always head over to MatchaBar in Williamsburg. It was the first matcha cafe to open in the U.S. They have everything from matcha donut holes to matcha biscotti and matcha macaroons. You may have had a matcha latte, but you’ve probably never tried their most popular item: the iced watermelon matcha.

Matcha comes primarily from Kyoto, where it’s been part of tea ceremonies for centuries. It's high in antioxidants and contains chlorophyll, caffeine, and L-Theanine- which is a natural calming agent that results in focused energy. 

No wonder people are still going mad for matcha.
