If you’re a fan of Matcha you’ll be excited to hear that Midori Matcha, a local favorite originally from LA, is finally coming down to Orange County! The cafe celebrated their Grand Opening August 5th 2018 at the SOCO Mix in Costa Mesa serving their popular teas, pastries, and soft serve!

What makes Midori Matcha different from others?

Midori Matcha is known for producing simple and quality drinks using only the highest grade of Matcha also known as Ceremonial Grade Matcha. As an advocate of health and fitness, Dmitry Steinbuchel founded the company in hopes of creating a healthy alternative to the usual sugary teas that are a popular trend at other cafes. He wanted to really focus on Matcha’s known benefits such as being high in antioxidants, an organic energizer, and for it’s natural amino acids that help with mental focus and alertness. In addition to the items at the cafe, Midori Matcha also sells their cold brewed organic tea in bottles at local markets which you can find here.

What are some of their signature items?
