Blind taste test: Who has the best iced matcha latte in Bangkok?
Many will agree (tea purists and the lactose-intolerant excluded) that matcha green tea is best drank as a latte, where the bitter taste of this intensely flavored tea blends perfectly with the rich creaminess of milk, leaving a sweet aftertaste on your palate. Many shops across Bangkok deliver pretty good matcha green tea lattes (iced, of course, as we live in a city where summer never ends), but we’re trying to figure out which one makes the best concoction—that sipper that has the perfect balance of sweet, bitter, aromatic and creamy. We put on our blindfolds, and sip our way through the iced matcha lattes of eight of the city’s most popular tea shops to find out which one deserves a spot in our hearts. Note: All drinks were purchased on the same day and around the same time for a blind test conducted by our staffers at the Time Out Bangkok office. This review is purely based on the staffers’ opinions, and was not, in any way or kind, sponsored.
