Dunkin' Matcha Latte: Where to Buy and Price Details

Dunkin' is making additions to its menu with the launch of its new Matcha Latte and Protein Muffin to give customers a mental boost during their busiest periods.

First introduced in Springfield, Massachusetts, and Phoenix, Arizona, in 2019, the Matcha Latte is made with high quality green tea powder blended with guests' milk of choice, according to the company.

Enjoyed hot or cold, the new beverage offers a fresh, vibrant, green tea flavor—this tea is known for being a source of catechins and epicatechins, which have beneficial health effects, according to a Harvard Medical School blog.

These compounds found in green tea belong to a group of plant chemicals called flavonoids which helps quell inflammation and potentially reduce plaque buildup inside arteries.

Green tea also contains smaller amounts of caffeine than other hot beverages, ranging from about 20 to 45 milligrams per 8 ounce cup—around half the amount of caffeine in an 8 ounce cup of coffee.

Matcha is made slightly differently from normal green tea we see in stores—it is made by stone grinding young green tea leaf buds into a fine powder. This particular Matcha is produced in the Nishio region of Aichi prefecture, Japan, where the finest Matcha has been grown for more than 800 years, according to Dunkin'.
