Why has green tea become so popular for this millennial foodie generation? Green tea, not only referring to the Japanese-style tea itself, but more specifically, its fine tea powder that is used to up the ante of classic cakes and desserts, has somehow permeated this 21st century to be one of the trendiest flavours among foodies. Whether it is going to be a mainstay or not is really up to us.
