7 of the best places to get delicious matcha drinks in Seattle

May 31 2021, 9:51 pm

All over TikTok and Instagram, teens have been rejoicing over the green beverage known as matcha.

Contrary to common belief, matcha itself isn’t the drink. It’s the finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves, traditionally consumed in East Asia.

Matcha can be added to water, milk, as well as an array of other drinks.

If you’re not sure where to start your matcha journey, head out to one of these seven spots in Seattle:

Coffeeholic House

Coffeeholic House in Seattle is known for its signature Vietnamese Coffees. What they’re lesser known for is the stellar matcha latte. You can even upgrade your drink with cheese foam or customize it with non-dairy milk.
