Matcha is well-known at this point. The trendy Japanese ingredient takes the form of powdered green tea and boasts of antioxidant richness and extra caffeine. Typically used for tea ceremonies, the element lends itself well for drinks, baked goods, and other edibles.
Austin restaurants and bars use the bright green powder in lattes, cocktails, soft serve, and baked goods. With that, here are the best places to find matcha-laced drinks and treats in the city. There are lattes and shots from Wild Chix and Juice Society, shaved ice at Snow Monster, a version of tiki cocktail Painkiller at Kemuri Tatsu-ya, matcha opera cakes at Elizabeth Street Cafe, and much more. This update adds Alfred, Henbit, 85C Bakery and Cafe, and others to the mix.
