Specially crafted, it brings together the health benefits of two incredible products, while creating a unique and delicious flavour.
Our Matcha Amazake Latte Mix is a blend that combines the natural freshness of our organic matcha, the light creaminess of amazake, and the delicate sweetness of uji sugar from Okinawa. Three ingredients chosen to bring satisfaction to your palate and restore your spirit in a single cup.
While sweetness is a subdued undertone, umami, astringency and bitterness are perfectly balanced to blend well with the other ingredients and enhance their taste. In addition to the delicious taste, the vibrant green matcha will catch your eye and its subtle fragrance will envelop your senses.
As well as being high quality, our Matcha Amazake Latte helps to improve overall health and wellbeing. Matcha is highly nutritious while low in calories as it contains abundant vitamins, antioxidants and fibers that are regarded to have positive effects on your body.

Amazake brought from Edo to modern times
Amazake is the ingredient that makes this Matcha Latte Mix one of a kind. A beloved element of traditional Japanese cuisine, it boasts a long history tracing back from its use in the Edo period as a way to fight heat-induced fatigue, to our modern days as a winter warm drink. Its light cream is obtained by sakekasu, fermented rice and kome-koji, in the same manner as sake. Thus, the name “sweet sake” is derived.
Well balanced with matcha, uji sugar and soy milk, the flavour of our Matcha Amazake Soy Latte is not overpowered by the natural fermented flavour of amazake. Its thick texture and subtle flavor elevate it as an excellent milk substitute, while the high nutritional values pairs well with our matcha. Please note that there may be residual traces of alcohol.
Delicate sweetness from Okinawa
The final touch to the crafted blend is our uji sugar from Ishigakijima, Okinawa. Extracted from the lush sugarcane fields surrounded by turquoise seas, it is made of pure satokibi (sugarcane) and finely ground into a delicate powder that easily dissolves in your drinks. Its gentle sweetness pairs perfectly with our Matcha Amazake Latte Mix.
