A part of our new tea latte flavors, learn more about our matcha tea latte concentrate.
With the rising interest in added functionality in food and beverages, Oregon Chai has created three new tea latte flavors with possible functional ingredients. One of those flavors is matcha. According to Datassential 2020, matcha has grown +271.5% over the past four years. The taste, Instagrammable color and perceived functional benefits all resonate with consumers, making a matcha tea latte the perfect item to add to your menu or even drink right at home.
The Meaning of Matcha
Meaning “powdered tea,” matcha comes from green tea leaves. The tea bushes are kept in the shade to increase the amount of chlorophyll, which gives matcha its bright green color.
Matcha in Food and Beverages
If you look at the matcha hashtag on Instagram, you’ll find photos of not only matcha lattes, but matcha baked goods, ice cream, smoothie bowls and more. It has truly become a beloved flavor in a variety of applications. Of course, we love it in a latte.
While you can enjoy matcha powder and simply whisk it with water, you can also pair matcha with milk for a matcha latte or you can add honey for a sweeter note. Oregon Chai’s matcha tea latte concentrate makes it easy to create the perfect latte. Just add milk or your favorite dairy substitute. The smooth sweetness and slight earthiness of matcha brings out the green tea flavor in every sip.
Functional Benefits of the Matcha Tea Latte
Not only does matcha taste great, but it’s loaded with functional benefits. Made from green tea, matcha has the possibility to provide benefits such as energy support and can boost concentration. Our matcha latte concentrate is
high in antioxidants and rich in fiber and vitamins. It’s also Non-GMO Project Verified and gluten-free.
