1 short (8 oz) with soy.

In. Love.

I like matcha with soy milk — like it a lot. I first tried the combo in the Matcha Monsoon smoothie from Booster Juice. In a nice warm latte, the combo’s even better. A bit sweet — does anyone know if I can get this baby unsweetened? The matcha itself is vegetal and creamy, too.

All in all, a bit heavy with the soy milk and sweetener. I’be be willing to try this with half skim, half 2% milk, or maybe even with all skim, to see if it’s a bit lighter that way. But when I’m willing to drink 150 calories, this is YUM.

Unfortunately the matcha and chai lattes are from a mix so they’re pre-sweetened as far as I know. But it’s fun and cheaper to make your own! When I want something at Starbucks I get a tea latte (London Fog is my favourite) with just the teabags and the milk, and I order either no sweetener or the sugar-free syrup (I have type 1 diabetes and need to know what’s going in there). You could try that with green tea and see how it compares though it won’t be as nice as the delicious matcha latte.

In Ohio they use unsweetened matcha and slightly sweetened vanilla soy milk as the base so ordereing totally unsweetened is impossible but it’s still clean compared to the hormone riddled coffee and sugar hit for which Starbucks is infamous…

I always ask for 10 scoops of matcha for a grande. Baristas are so amused a couple gave me one free to see me drink it and not become ill. XD

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
