DTLA: Tea Master Matcha Cafe of Little Tokyo

matcha soft serve


I heard about Tea Master from a friend in the know of matcha shops. She said they had the best matcha soft serve and we HAD TO TRY IT. Well, all right then.

Now an Instagram darling, the tiny shop is located in the same strip mall as Sushi Gen.

Tea Master sells matcha and green tea in a variety of preps; everything from soft serve to iced and hot. I like that you can get your iced green tea sweetened with beet syrup. And the matcha latte uses oat milk.

The soft serve comes in a cup and there’s only one size. It is indeed pillow-y soft and just the right amount of sweetness.

However it was the matcha latte that I fell in love with it. While I’m not a sweets fan, I don’t go nuts for ice cream (shh, don’t tell my Instagram buddies) so having a not-too-sweet iced tea latte was the perfect afternoon pick-me-up.

Now how to deal with the insane lines for both Sushi Gen AND Tea Master…
