With its vibrant green colour, matcha tea is hard to miss. Often used in Japanese tea ceremonies, matcha is finely ground from high-grade green tea leaves and has been consumed for centuries for its health benefits.
What is the difference between green tea and matcha?
In recent years, matcha tea combined with foamed milk – called a matcha latte – has gained popularity. It is praised as a healthy, antioxidant alternative to coffee, and a good source of vitamins and minerals that promotes mental alertness in a calm and relaxed way, as opposed to the coffee-induced adrenalin spike.
If you love drinking matcha lattes but are struggling to find them in Copenhagen, this guide is for you. There are many great places that offer tasty matcha lattes, and they all have a story about where they source their matcha from.
Here are the best places to get delicious matcha lattes in Copenhagen:
Sing Tehus focuses on sourcing tea from small independent farmers who grow tea with care, quality, and great respect for nature. Many of Sing Tehus’s suppliers are family-owned, passing on traditions of tea making through the generations. At Sing Tehus, you can order a matcha latte made with Yamabuki leaves from Hoshino Seichaen, one of the finest matcha producers in Japan. And a fun fact: they were the first tea house in Copenhagen to serve Japanese tea in 2006, with a strong emphasis on matcha tea.

Sonny is one of Copenhagen’s most popular places for matcha fans. They use Yamabuki matcha from Sing Tehus, which is organic and top-quality, to make their famous matcha lattes that are whisked with oat milk. They suggest that the reason their matcha tastes different is because of the water they use in the process.
Sonny also offers a variety of tea and other specialty drinks such as golden latte (made with turmeric, ginger, chamomile, lemon, oat milk, pepper & a hint of roiboos sirup) and kombucha.
