Go Green with a Matcha Masterclass

Matcha green tea has a rich history, with origins that can be traced back to China’s Tang Dynasty (618-907).

However it was not until the mid-18th century with the invention of the uji process that matcha became more readily available and almost 300 years later its popularity is continuing to grow.

Michelle Puyane is so passionate about matcha that she left her job in finance to focus full-time on bringing it to New Yorkers.

After studying culinary management at ICE while training and working as a barista at Little Collins, Michelle started Chalait – a café serving both espresso and matcha – in January 2015 with her husband Ramon Puyane.
