Matcha is always one of our favorite teas to play with because despite (or perhaps because of) its distinctive flavor profile, it seamlessly finds the beat of almost any ingredient you pair it with. In this mocktail, the marzipan flavors of orgeat complement and mellow the earthy vegetal flavors of our Matcha Wakatake.

We will show you how we would serve this mocktail at either a spring brunch or summer dinner party, along with our recommended matcha for this and other culinary or baking applications. If you'd rather skip the small talk and get straight to the recipe, use the jump to recipe button below!

Choosing the Right Matcha

Recommended Matcha for Cocktails

Choosing the right matcha for you might seem a little daunting at first - "why do you have more than one?!" is a question we've gotten... more than once.

We always recommend our Matcha Wakatake for any drinks or recipes that involve more than just whisking a beautiful bowl of matcha. A very high culinary grade, this gorgeous matcha is a steal at only $0.97 a cup and has all the same health benefits as our ceremonial matchas without breaking the bank!
