Default Who makes matcha? SB Green tea latte DIY

I love Starbucks green tea latte. It's basically matcha, steamed milk, and a little sugar.

Anyone have a brand of matcha they like? I prefer organic since I'm consuming the whole leaf.

I can't keep spending $4 on these things.

Default Re: Who makes matcha? SB Green tea latte DIY

Do matcha is the best I've had, but I usually buy culinary grade Kenko or Serendipitea from Amazon to save some money. And I don't notice a difference in taste with a latte, even with much less or even no sweetener.

They do put syrup in the Starbucks drink; I get it without. But even their matcha powder mix has sugar in it, and you can't separate the two, so it is still plenty sweet without the syrup.

I just heard about it too. Curious what it tastes like. I don't like tea or coffee so would I not like this?

Starbucks stopped putting syrup in it sometime last year. I only know because whenever I order they usually tell me, "we don't sweeten it anymore, do you want syrup?" NO! The Venti (20ozs) has 3 teaspoons of sugar, not very much. But that's another reason I want to make my own. No sugar at all.

I'm guessing you wouldn't like it but matcha tastes different from black tea or regular green tea.

Matcha is ground up green tea, a powder. But it's not ordinary green tea, it's grown and processed in a special way that changes the chemical composition and flavor somewhat. Matcha is what is used in the Japanese tea ceremony.

The green tea latte is an American atrocity.

Steeped Tea makes an amazing matcha, but it's a MLM/home-business thing and I'm not sure that's what you're looking for.

My daughter's favourite. I'm not sure if they ship to the US. https://www.davidstea.com/ca_en/ceremonial-matcha

We've bought this before and it was used quickly...before I even had a chance to try it. https://www.amazon.com/Trader-Joes-M.../dp/B00JCEYP8S

I think there's orange extract in it, too. I could be wrong, but it tasted citrus to me. I made my at home substitute with it. But I didn't actually have matcha, just brewed green tea.
