Matcha Milk Tea

What does Matcha Milk Tea taste like?

We get this question a lot. What does Matcha taste like? Fat Straws Matcha Milk Tea combines the distinct flavors of matcha, milk, and chewy boba. Here’s a breakdown of what it tastes like:

  1. Matcha: Matcha is a type of green tea made from finely powdered young tea leaves. It has a unique, slightly bitter and earthy flavor profile with grassy undertones. At Fat Straws, we use high quality matcha to offer a balance of sweetness and bitterness.
  2. Milk: Milk is typically added to matcha tea to create matcha milk tea. The milk adds creaminess and richness to the beverage, as well as a slightly sweet flavor. The type of milk used (dairy or non-dairy) can influence the taste, with dairy milk imparting a classic creamy taste and non-dairy options like soy milk, coconut milk, almond milk or oat milk offering their own distinct flavors.
  3. Boba: Boba, also known as tapioca pearls, are small, chewy balls made from tapioca starch. They are typically sweetened and cooked until they reach a chewy consistency. Boba doesn’t have much flavor on its own, but it adds a fun textural element to the drink, providing a contrast to the smoothness of the matcha milk tea.

Overall, Fat Straws Matcha Milk Tea with boba offers a harmonious blend of earthy matcha flavors, creamy milkiness, and the delightful chewiness of boba pearls. The sweetness level can vary depending on personal preference from no sugar to 100% sweetness level. It’s a refreshing and satisfying beverage enjoyed by many fans of Fat Straws boba tea.
