3 layered raspberry matcha latte in a glass cup

Make this impressive and delicious raspberry matcha latte and in just 5 minutes? Yes! I’ll show you how.

Iced matcha drinks are so addictive and refreshing. With raspberry flavor as a twist, it makes this matcha latte uniquely different and irresistible.

3 Layered Iced Matcha Origin

Where did the 3 layered drink come from? Originally, The Boba Guys, a popular boba shop in San Francisco, came up with the Strawberry Matcha Latte. You can check out their extensive boba drink menu.

It’s so colorful and an interesting variation on matcha drinks that it’s reminiscent how alcoholic cocktails are beautifully presented. But now these gorgeous matcha drinks are nonalcoholic that everyone can enjoy them.

How to Pour Layers

Here are my pouring tips:

  1. Be sure that all liquids are cold or room temperature, not warm or hot.
  2. Make sure the drink has lots of ice, at least 2 inches over the bottom layer.
  3. Use a measuring cup with a spout or milk frother cup to pour so that the liquid comes out in a narrow stream.
  4. Pour over 1 ice cube only. If the ice cube starts moving while you are pouring, then follow the ice cube.

How to Make This in 5 Minutes

Instead of pureeing the raspberries, I use raspberry jam from Trader Joe’s. It’s almost the same thing except that the raspberries in the jam are cooked. But it’s ready to go and adds a delicate flavor to the matcha.
