Matcha, the finely-milled green tea powder, is more popular right now than perhaps ever before. Rumored to be high in antioxidants and delicious to boot, the pale green drink is the current darling of the hip-kid set, particularly in places like New York City. Case in point, the drink-focused MatchaBar in Brooklyn, which has proven so popular they’re expanding to Los Angeles with a two-day pop-up.

Running June 27 and 28, the MatchaBar Los Angeles event takes place at Alfred in the Alley in West Hollywood. For both days they’ll be serving up signature iced matcha drinks in a variety of flavors, from peach to mint to vanilla almond, plus a new drink option exclusive to L.A.

Does this mark the beginning of the matcha revolution in Los Angeles? Maybe so. Of course, nearby on Melrose, Gracias Madre has been using matcha in their boozy bubble teas for a while now.
