Introduction: Strawberry Matcha Latte (from Boba Guys)

Boba Guys is an insanely popular bubble tea chain with locations from the SF Bay area to New York. Last time I was in Cali I was able to try one of their fan-favorites, the Strawberry Matcha Latte! I was hooked. It was sweet, creamy, and wonderfully fruity with a nice matcha caffeine kick. Plus you gotta admit it's super pretty :) Since the nearest location is 5 hrs from me, I've been making my own.

This recipe was officially released by Boba Guys on their Instagram story a while ago. I was able to take notes before it was gone to share with you guys!

Step 1: Ingredients

Here is what you'll need:

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries (I used frozen)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tsp matcha powder (try to use high grade/ceremonial if you can-- it's more vibrant and has a brighter flavor)
  • Any kind of milk you'd like (I used whole)


Half and half will not work

Step 2: Make Strawberry Puree

In a blender, combine your strawberries, sugar, and water until you get your desired consistency. I kept mine a little chunky, but as well as everything is well combined, you can make yours smooth too.

Step 3: Prepare Your Matcha

Take 1 heaping tsp of matcha powder and add it to a bowl. Then, pour 50 ml of hot water and whisk vigorously until combined.

Step 4: Assemble Your Drink

Prepare the following:

  • your strawberry mixture
  • your prepared matcha
  • your choice of milk
  • enough ice to fill your cup


  1. Measure out 100 ml of strawberry puree and pour this into your cup
  2. add your ice until the cup is full
  3. pour your milk slowly-- I recommend using the back of a spoon to break the pour and create a better layered affect. I learned this after my first cup (as you can see from the mixing that happened)
  4. pour your matcha over the milk, using the spoon method again.

Step 5: Enjoy!

This is a great drink for the 'gram ;) and for just sipping slowly in the sun. Use a straw and mix it all together if you wish.
