You, Me, and Holy Matcha Green Tea.
This weekend Holy Matcha is celebrating their one year anniversary, and I am so happy for them!
For those of you who don’t know Holy Matcha is not your average tea room. This emporium of matcha goodness was founded by Geraldine Ridaura, a total #GirlBoss and advocate for ALL things matcha. After, traveling to Japan in 2014 and discovering this amazing tea, Ridaura was so inspired that she decided to bring it back to San Diego and introduce it to the community!
With that said, Holy Matcha has become one of the cutest and most Instagram-worthy cafes in San Diego. I mean how can you not love pink bubblegum walls and velvet banquettes paired with tropical wallpaper?!? Everything about this tea room is adorable and aesthetically pleasing. Their menu is one-of-a-kind and has grown over the past year! They offer a variety of drinks and bites, from Matcha Horchata (my fav) to Dairy-Free soft serve ice cream! Also, all of their refreshments and goodies are both dairy-free and gluten-free! So, it’s a win-win situation for everyone.
**Fun Fact: I was hesitant at first to try Holy Matcha because I’m super picky and don’t usually like tea…WELL, I was utterly wrong about myself because I absolutely fell in love with all things matcha after trying this place out!! So 10/10 would definitely recommend.
In honor of their anniversary weekend they came out with limited edition matcha bites and drinks like, Strawberry Matcha Horchata and Vanilla Cupcakes topped with Green Tea Frosting. I didn’t try the Strawberry Matcha Horchata, but I did try the cupcake, and it was AMAZING! They also had this beautiful flower wall installation and pink balloons inside; it was like a magical wonderland!
All in all, Holy Matcha is a lovely place to hang out with friends, take cute pictures, and enjoy a matcha beverage. The owner is so sweet and hospitable, same goes for the staff! Their customer service is excellent, and I will continue to go there! ♡ Happy one year anniversary Holy Matcha! ♡
