Recently I stopped by Matcha Cafe Maiko for a matcha latte. I'd not been aware that it's a tiny hole-in-the-wall in the Japantown mall for to-go orders only. The line was out the door, but it moves pretty fast.
The matcha latte was more concentrated and strong with green tea than other versions I've had. And sweeter too with more sugar to balance out the intensity of flavor and astringent tannins.
Most customers were ordering the matcha soft-serve. That's what I'm getting next time.
