starbucks green tea latte is really gross

I love Starbucks Green Tea Latte too. But it IS an acquired taste. Anyone that says that adding milk to green tea doesn't realize the difference between a leaf brew and matcha. Anyways, you can get what is called "Ingredient Grade" or "Restaurant Matcha" online. It isn't the high quality matcha used in tea ceremonies. Rather it's a matcha that has a stronger flavor used in green tea ice cream, lattes, and the like. Plus, it's only about $30 per pound (compared to $30 per 20g for the high grade stuff).
