Do you prefer drinking your matcha with some nice plant milk and a little bit of sugar? The Basic Latte Grade Matcha is the right choice for you. This matcha has a stronger taste that pairs better with cream and sugar, so you still can get a powerful matcha taste. This matcha is also more affordable, so you don't have to use it as sparingly.
Compared to the standard latte grade matcha, the basic latte grade matcha is slightly more bitter, so you will want to only use it in mixed drinks, lattes and smoothies. Throw a scoop or two in your morning latte or smoothie and get all the benefits of green tea! Like our other teas, this matcha was also grown without the use of pesticides or chemicals and it is produced by a small family-owned farm in Shizuoka.
