Latest from London! Super trendy! Everybody drinks it! Okay, we may be a few hundred years late to the matcha green tea party. The Japanese have been drinking it since the 1400s, but then a trend-scouting-influencer-person from the western world found it and introduced it as something new and fresh and trendy. And we are totally happy the trend-scouting-influencer-person did because we like matcha, but no one wants to take credit away from the Japanese and say, “Hello, we’re bringing you something new!” just because it’s a bit new here. So how about this…Now there’s a matcha latte in our range of liquid oat products and it’s great. And vegan. And organic.
Oat base (water, oats 10 %), rapeseed oil*, agave syrup* 2%, matcha powder* 0.4%, sea salt, algae (Lithothamnium calcareum), natural flavour.* Organic Where does it come from?

If you google matcha, so many nice words come up. Not to say they’re all completely untrue but like most things on the internet, we probably can’t believe them all. Anyway, a google, bing or yahoo search is yours free to use if you feel like reading all the nice words about matcha.
What we can tell you for sure is that our Matcha Latte is not super sweet. Its balanced sweetness comes naturally from the oats and also from 2% organic agave syrup. And the nice, creamy texture comes from 2.8% fat of which 2.6% is unsaturated.
what might be less amazing
... is the confusion that may arise around the word ”latte”. When you order a latte at a coffee shop you usually have to say "oat" or maybe "soy" before it, otherwise you will most likely get a milk latte. So we think it’s time that more non-milk lattes are being produced. And maybe someday the word latte won’t be tied to milk at all. Anyway, regarding this Matcha Latte, we are pretty sure that we don’t need to remind you that we exclusively make non-milk, 100% plant-based products.
You can store it outside the fridge. It’s 100% milk free, just in case you had any doubts after reading the "Maybe a little less amazing" section.
