Ordering at Starbucks:

When I go to Starbucks, I order 2-3 scoops of matcha and ice water in a grande cup.  If you want more water, ask for 3 scoops in a venti cup.  If you want it sweeter, ask for a little honey.  The matcha they use is pretty sweet to begin with but definitely experiment to find what suits you.  Depending on the location, prices will vary.  Some places will charge by the scoop or as a latte.


There are several pre-made matcha drinks that make great to-go options.  Some of my favorites are Rebbl Matcha LatteMatcha Now unsweetened and lightly sweet twist cap bottles, Teapigs Matcha Super Power Green Tea Drink in Grapefruit, Apple, and Elderflower flavors, an Matcha Love drinks in unsweetened and sweetened options.

Happy sipping’!
