What does a Matcha Latte taste like?
What Does Matcha Latte Taste Like? Unlike a regular latte, a matcha latte is made using a shade-grown green tea powder. The green tea gives this milky frothy drink a sweet, moorish vegetal taste. Some people say that matcha itself carries an umami flavour, whereas others claim that it reminds them of spinach.
Why does Matcha taste like fish?
A fishy matcha taste usually means it’s denatured due to humidity or heat. Because matcha is in powder form, it’s even easier for matcha to absorb odors and humidity from the air compared to dry leaf tea. Storing powder sealed is therefore very important to keep it fresh and away from smells.
Does adding milk to Matcha reduce benefits?
