Another Viennese Matcha Latte Experience

Thanks to a tip by FCN/BoB, I knew that blueorange were now doing matcha lattes. Yeah! Being both impatient and curious, I had to try it asap and therefore braved the journey through the rain, Chiquita in tow. Our verdict: not bad, but much to sweet even though we had the original, not the white chocolate variety (I don't want to imagine how sweet that one is).

With the 2 tins I imported from Japan plus another 2 I got as Christmas presents, I have plenty of raw material:
