10 Creative Ways to Order Matcha in Los Angeles
Are you even a Californian if you don’t have an oat milk matcha latte in hand? Matcha is the “it” drink with many health benefits. It boosts metabolism, is full of antioxidants, reduces risk of cancer, blah blah blah! Long story short, it is crazy good for you, but let’s be honest, we all love it for the flavor and photo ops! What you may not know is that there is a whole world of matcha outside of your typical latte. Here are ten different ways to find the gorgeous green tea in LA!
Alfred Tea Room
Melrose & Brentwood
As a latte! Available only at the tea room in Melrose, this celebrity magnet serves matcha lattes, mango matcha purees, matcha kits, and more! Smooth, cool, creamy, and matchalicious!
Mama Chingona Vegana
As a donut with CBD infused matcha icing! A vegan dessert pop-up with matcha flavored sweets? Sounds like heaven! Scout out where to find Mama Chingona Vegana and try out their CBD infused matcha donuts or Rosewater Matcha Buns!
Highland Park & DTLA
As an ice cream donut sandwich! Donut Friend has a Green Teagan and Sara flavor with matcha glaze, toasted black sesame seeds, and a dash of freeze-dried raspberry dust. Upgrade it by ordering it with a scoop of ice cream in between!
Hello Cake Girl
As a cupcake! This spot offers vegan and gluten-free double matcha cupcake that beautifully compliments their iced matcha with horchata. You can also custom order a matcha-flavored cake for your next event. Party on!
In granola! M Cafe is a vegan-friendly health harbor that offers matcha granola with seasonal berries over vanilla chia pudding or coconut yogurt. If you’re surfing the oat milk wave, you can get Oatly oat milk poured over instead! For something a little creamier, get their matcha milkshake!
Cha Cha Matcha
West Hollywood & Venice
In banana bread! If you can’t already tell by the name, this place offers all things matcha. Soft serve, lattes, you name it! But what really caught our eye is their Cha Cha Matcha Vegan Banana Bread Mini. Get your camera ready because this spot is Instagram gold (or green!)
In an ice cream cone! Ice cream lovers, we haven’t forgotten about you! This all-vegan scoop shop offers a matcha flavor with bits of cookies mixed in. Try it out and load it up with toppings!
Culver City & Westlake North
As a boba latte! These guys do it right with their iced matcha latte with house-made cassava root tapioca balls. Get it with Califia farms almond milk or Oatly oat milk for a creamy cup of joy!
On a cinnamon roll! Create your own cinnamon roll topped in matcha frosting and covered in whatever toppings you dream up! That counts as your daily dose of greens, right?
As a CBD-infused drink! Order the Jade Cocktail made with matcha green tea, hemp milk, and organic hemp CBD. Match(a) it with a Hummus Bagel, Vegan Delight sandwich, or a vegan and gluten-free Almond Coconut Delight!
