Dunkin’ Matcha Latte

A matcha latte is a creamy hot drink that’s usually made with matcha powder, sugar, and milk.

At Dunkin’, all matcha drinks, including the matcha latte, are made with a matcha blend that already contains sugar and milk.

Because the matcha blend is already sweetened, it’s not possible to order this drink unsweetened.

Milk is steamed, creating a frothy, hot drink.

Heat the milk at low heat.
When warming milk on the stovetop, make sure to do so over low heat. Once it reaches a simmer, turn off the heat right away so the milk doesn’t boil and burn.

Froth milk using a French press.
To make the milk frothy, pour the warm milk into a French press and give it a few pumps (about 20-30 pumps) until the milk doubles in volume.

Expert Tips

  • You can also microwave the milk. Place the milk in a microwave-safe cup and heat it at 30-second, then 15-second intervals until warm.

  • For an extra decadent drink, top with whipped cream.

Questions You May Have

What’s the difference between unsweetened and sweetened matcha?

Unsweetened matcha powder is simply Japanese green tea that’s been finely ground up. Sweetened matcha is powdered green tea and sugar.

Does the Dunkin’ matcha latte have caffeine?

Yes, matcha is made from green tea, which means matcha lattes are caffeinated.

Is matcha healthy?

Matcha by itself is loaded with antioxidants and is also known for having calming properties. However, matcha lattes at stores like Dunkin’ and Starbucks’ typically have a lot of sugar, so they wouldn’t be considered healthy.
