Matcha Espresso with condensed milk

In Spanish coffee shops you can order Espresso Coffee with condenced milk.  This drink is called "biberón" or "café bombón".  It is quite sweet so people sometimes order this drink instead of order dessert and coffee because this is the perfect way to take sweet dessert and after-lunch coffee at the same time.

Now we would like to present you our new unique recipe - Matcha Espresso with condensed milk!  We just used Matcha instead of coffee. It is a very beautiful drink and much healthier than coffee. 3g of Matcha contains 19% of the recommended amount of antioxidants in the diet of an adult and also, 
Matcha tea is a significant source of several vitamins and minerals. Nutiritionally, a cup of Matcha is equivalent to taking 10 cups of traditional green tea such as Sencha. If you have a habit of taking 2 cups of coffee a day, why not change one cup to Matcha? Your body and mind will appreciate you!
