Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much sugar is in my cup of Matcha Latte?
    The main ingredient is sugar, then matcha. Each teaspoon has roughly 3.5 g of sugar. Ippuku Matcha Latte Powder is a matcha / sugar blend that is formulated specifically for making hot, iced or frozen matcha lattes. If you want to cut out sugar, and want to blend matcha with a sweetener such as agave, honey, Splenda, etc, we recommend Matcha for Cooking or Organic Matcha For Cooking. It goes well with any kind of milk, orange juice, etc as a health drink. It is a culinary grade matcha that is excellent for use in making matcha flavored beverages such as smoothies, OJ / soy shots, matcha lattes, and desserts/baking. It contains pure matcha, no sugar. We also have Organic Ceremonial Matcha, which is premium matcha used for drinking straight. It is the tea that is used in Japanese Tea Ceremony.
  • Do you offer Matcha Latte powder with no sugar?
    Yes, we offer Matcha Americano and Matcha for Cooking, which both have zero sugar. Matcha Americano is a higher quality matcha powder, and Matcha for Cooking is better used to blend with other ingredients (ex. protein/fruit powder). Matcha for Cooking has a little bit more of a bitter flavor than Matcha Americano. We recommend straining both powders before use to prevent lumps.
  • How much Caffeine is in Matcha Latte?
    The caffeine in matcha (powdered green tea) is notably higher than that of regular bagged tea, as you are consuming the entire tea leaf in powder form. One teaspoon of Ippuku Matcha Latte Powder will contain about 35 mg of caffeine.
  • How to make Matcha Latte without lumps?
    I'd like to list a few ways to avoid lumps. Most coffee shops use the steam of the espresso machine to mix it with milk and serve it hot, and most places add ice cream and serve it with a cold latte. If you have an espresso machine at home, that's the fastest way to do it, but if you don't, you'll probably have to mix a little boiling water into the powder, knead it with hot water, and then pour in cold milk and ice. If you don't have boiling water, you can also add a little bit of milk to the powder first and then pour the rest of the milk into the powder for much better results. Another option would be to use a strainer. Some people use a protein shaker. It's hard to mix protein powder as well. And it's a pain to use and wash the mixer every time you use it. Unless you're making a lot of it at once. I hope the above methods are helpful to you.
