INTERVIEW WITH @greatescape_v
I wasn't a fan of Soju back then. It tasted like liquid medicine to me. Until I tried the fruit-flavoured Soju, I thought it tasted better with some sweetness. So I got curious how it would taste after adding matcha.
Adding Soju to the usual Matcha Latte gives you a subtle "Hot" sensation down your throat, and a little bit of salt adds another layer of flavour. So it's a different drinking experience from the typical ones.
