Iced Oat Milk Latte!
Emma Chamberlain recently released three new matcha latte products so, since I enjoyed her last matchas so much, I had to try these too. The formulation is definitely very different so I knew not to expect a directly comparable experience. These matcha latte mixes are presweetened and have a significant amount of oat milk powder used as a base – not like the unsweetened flavoured matchas.
Obviously the big selling point for this “flavour” is its brilliant blue colour, and it delivers on that ten-fold. The butterfly pea flower is well incorporated and without seconds of adding water or milk to the powder it quickly becomes a deep, deep blue colour. Very stunning to look at. It is, expectedly, sweet but I’m not anti sweetened matcha. My main thing is that this is kind of advertised as a vanilla flavoured blue matcha latte and it doesn’t particularly taste of any flavour other than sweet and whatever milk or alt milk you’ve mixed it with – in my case oat milk.
I personally felt the aesthetic of the drink wasn’t cool enough to out weigh the fact it was missing a flavour to go alongside it – and unfortunately the matcha itself didn’t taste all that strong. So, for me, this was a bit of a let down.
