These unique matcha blends are a seamless delight for tea fans. The Original doesn't hide it's leafy roots, but has an earthy, pleasant sweetness and rich consistency. The Mango takes it up a notch in flavor, with a very cohesive and dessert-like vibe. The Bombay Chai wasn't quite my cup of tea, as the spices battled for center stage.

Last year, I covered these dairy-free green tea latte mixes in Allergic Living magazine (for print), but forgot to share them here! Time to rectify that situation with some details about this dreamy find …

Though I’m not a coffee drinker, I adore tea, and the idea of enjoying an indulgence that’s typically exclusive to those who a) consume dairy and b) love the bean, was simply too wonderful to pass up. Plus, each mix is made with just a handful of pure ingredients (including real spices and extracts) and sweetened solely with coconut sugar. The added body comes from organic coconut oil and algae flour (yes, seaweed!).

… it’s mighty cold out, so we went with hot in our taste-testings. With limited latte knowledge, I was expecting more of a creamy finish. Rather, each flavor had a rich and luxurious mouth-feel, but neither the appearance nor the flavor were milky in any way. Here are my flavor notes for each variety:

Original – The taste is smooth, lightly rich, and gently sweet, with subtle coconut nuances against a notable green tea backdrop. Unique, grown-up and steep in natural flavor, this is not a sugary-sweet latte, but it is on the “treat” side for those of us who thoroughly enjoy green tea.

Tropical Mango – The fruity notes overwhelmed my senses as the hot water splashed down into this powdery green tea latte mix. But after stirring, the scent mellowed and the taste was pure indulgence. This had the same sugar content as the Original, but the mango extract makes it notably sweeter and seems to bring the coconut and matcha flavors together into a harmonious and somewhat addictive blend.

Bombay Chai – The fragrant blend of cardamom, cinnamon and fennel is notably bold and assertive in this green tea latte mix option. Though I’m a big spice fan, the flavors somehow didn’t come together for me. I think some people might love this one, but it just wasn’t cohesive enough for my tastes.

  1. Wow, what a treat! It’s still rare to find dairy-free latte mixes, let alone those made with matcha instead of coffee, so I’m definitely intrigued!
