Spotlight: Green Grotto Maccha Hokkaido Milk Tea

I have reviewed my overall experience at Green Grotto already, but in the last few months, they released a new drink: Maccha Hokkaido Milk Tea.

At $6.49, this drink is not cheap by any means, but it is the perfect blend of earthy matcha and sweet Hokkaido milk to leave your tastebuds satisfied. Also, you get 15% off with take-out!

They have opened a new location across from Markville Mall, and have a whopping eight locations now in Markham, Richmond Hill, Scarborough, Downtown Toronto, Vaughan, and Mississauga. Browse them all on their website to find the one closest to you.
