now that we are beyond the dog days of summer, the Bay Area of San Francisco where i live much of the time is just reaching its hot phase. the dry heat is different than the humid air i grew up with on the east coast. my recent trip proved, though, that this delightful new addition to the Breakaway matcha lineup is refreshing in either environ. one could say it’s almost fluffy with it’s pillow-like green sateen vibe. 2 grams or a teaspoon in ICY cold water and shake like mad for the fastest ticket out of the heat.
