When purchasing matcha powder, it’s recommended to look for ceremonial-grade or culinary-grade matcha, depending on your intended use.
Culinary-grade matcha is more suitable for cooking, baking, and making matcha-based beverages like lattes. It is made from slightly older tea leaves and has a more robust flavor compared to ceremonial-grade matcha. Culinary-grade matcha is often used in recipes where the matcha flavor needs to be more pronounced, as it can withstand higher temperatures and the addition of other ingredients.
- Traditional Sweeteners: Traditional choices include cane sugar or granulated sugar. They dissolve easily and provide a balanced sweetness to the latte. Adjust the amount according to your taste preference.
- Honey: Honey adds a natural sweetness and a hint of floral flavor to the latte. It blends well with matcha and can enhance its overall taste. Use quality honey that complements the flavors of matcha.
- Maple Syrup: Maple syrup adds a unique sweetness with earthy undertones, which can complement the grassy flavor of matcha. It’s a popular choice for those who prefer a natural sweetener.
- Agave Nectar: Agave nectar is a liquid sweetener derived from the agave plant. It has a mild and neutral taste, which won’t overpower the matcha flavor. It dissolves easily in cold beverages.
- Stevia or Monk Fruit Sweetener: For those seeking a sugar-free option, stevia or monk fruit sweeteners can be used as they are low in calories and provide sweetness without sugar. These sweeteners are available in powder or liquid form.
No, you can use any Dairy-Free beverage including, coconut milk, almond milk, or oat milk.
The flavor will taste the same, but the texture will change after the blended ice melts in the refrigerator.
No, you can find Matcha powder on Amazon, Trader Joes’, Sprouts, or almost any grocery store. Make sure you choose Ceremonial or Culinary Grade.
What is a Starbucks Iced Matcha Latte
At Starbucks, the Iced Matcha Latte is often customizable to accommodate individual preferences. Customers can choose the type of milk (such as whole milk, almond milk, or coconut milk), as well as the level of sweetness by selecting the desired amount of sweetener or requesting it to be unsweetened. Some variations may include additional flavors or toppings, such as vanilla syrup or whipped cream, for added indulgence.
