Starting Feb. 26, you can find matcha lattes at a Dunkin’ near you. The new drink was first tested out in markets in Arizona and Massachusetts last year, and quickly became a menu favorite. Now, Dunkin’ fan across the country will be able to get their hands on this vibrant, refreshing new latte flavor.
“As compared to traditional green tea, where the tea leaves are steeped or brewed, Matcha is made by stone grinding young green tea leaf buds into a fine powder,” explains Dunkin’s press release on the new product. “Dunkin’s Matcha Lattes feature high-quality Matcha green tea powder, produced in the Nishio region of Aichi prefecture, Japan, where the finest Matcha has been grown for more than 800 years.”
You can choose to enjoy a Dunkin’ sweetened matcha tea latte hot, iced or frozen, and the matcha latte can be blended with milk of your choice (such as dairy milk or almond milk).
Elite Daily reports that a small hot matcha costs $3.19, a small iced is $3.69, and a small frozen will run you $3.29. Large sizes range from $4.09-$4.99.
In addition to this new menu item, Dunkin’ is also rolling out a new muffin flavor this week. Their new Protein Muffin has 16 grams of protein and is packed with heart-healthy nutrients thanks to ingredients like blueberries, cranberries, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. It’s a limited-edition flavor that’s also available starting Feb. 26.
Until the start of spring, customers can enjoy Coconut Caramel and Thin Mints coffee flavors, which were inspired by Girl Scout cookie flavors of the same name. You might even luck out and get to purchase some cookies right at your very own Dunkin’, as the brand is welcoming many Girl Scout troops to set up cookie booths in their stores.
