A good matcha latte has the power to both calm the mind and energize the body. Spoiler alert: This is not a caffeine story. In fact, matcha contains far less caffeine than your average cup of coffee and yet still gets the job done – minus the jitters.
What’s in a matcha latte? Finely ground green tea leaves, warm water and frothed milk – that’s all. A matcha latte, much like a caffe latte, will have a milky texture and natural sweetness but with a green tea taste and vegetal finish. Want to sip something even sweeter? Replace your traditional matcha with a flavoured matcha drink mix.
If you’d like to try a matcha latte for yourself, we make them in our stores or you can craft your own from the comfort of home. Either way, we think you’re going to love it.
