Kathleen: I've been a huge fan matcha for a long time after discovering it was the key ingredient in green team ice cream. LOL! Turns out it chock full of good stuff like antioxidants and metabolism boosters. So when I came across a pink and green dream like latte spot called Cha Cha Matcha on Instagram, I knew I had to take Sam! (Anything for the 'gram, right?) Their feed is full of rainbow-fied drinks, pillow-like soft serve ice cream and confectionary pics of the cafe's Nolita exterior. I wasn't at all surprised when Cha Cha Matcha lived up to my expectations... all baristas were adorably hip and the menu that they have on the wall was the perfect mix of utility and design! (I'm a huge design nerd!) I ordered the 'Pink Drink' which is a mix of hibiscus, rose hips, bee pollen and maca... DELISH! -- Follow Kathleen on Insta!
Sam: Oh. My. Goodness. Kathleen is an excellent date. I tried matcha ice cream at @chachamatcha, and it was honestly the FIRST TIME I ever liked the flavor of matcha. Apparently, I have been sampling poor quality brands my entire life, 🤷go figure. Now it’s up to Kathleen to make sure I get my butt here weekly. For health reasons! 😘 💚#GirlDate #WeTookAZillionPhotos -- Follow Sam on Insta!
