REVIEW: Dunkin’ Blueberry Iced Matcha Latte

What the Dunkin’ Blueberry Iced Matcha Latte?

It combines Dunkin’s Iced Matcha Latte with pumps of its blueberry flavor shots. Pimple dimple simple.

How is it?

I enjoy Dunkin’s Iced Matcha Latte, which I reviewed when it debuted. And, to be honest, I thought adding some blueberry flavor wouldn’t make that much of a difference. But holy moly, while it just lingers in the background, the fruitiness totally enhances the sweet matcha. The blueberry flavor makes this taste as if it has a blueberry muffin essence.

It’s a simple addition, but the flavor shots make an already tasty drink even better. If you love the original, then definitely give this flavored version a try.

Although, now that I think about it, maybe my mind is blown a little because all the matcha lattes I’ve ever had have been just matcha with no other flavor. So perhaps the slight change is impressing me more than it should. Still, this is a mighty tasty beverage.

Anything else you need to know?

After drinking this, I wondered if there has ever been a Blueberry Matcha Kit Kat in Japan. I did a lazy Google search and found nothing. Maybe it’s time to get on that, Nestle Japan. Or if you’re feel courageous, Hershey’s, perhaps you should make it here.

Also, this drink makes me want to bake some blueberry matcha muffins. Although, I’m not very good at baking, which was proven when I did not add eggs to brownie batter. So maybe I’ll find a local bakery that does make them.

Of course, since it’s been possible to customize the matcha latte since it was introduced, I could’ve been getting this drink all this time. Speaking of customization, I got mine with whole milk, but you can get it with any dairy or non-dairy milk Dunkin’ offers.

Conclusion:

If you’re not into super sugary matcha drinks and prefer the green tea’s bitterness, then this is not for you. As for myself, I think I may get all future Dunkin’ Iced Matcha Lattes this way.

10 thoughts to “REVIEW: Dunkin’ Blueberry Iced Matcha Latte”

  1. I also thought it tasted like a blueberry muffin when I tried it. It’s a tasty drink. As much as I love both Blueberries and Match, I think I still prefer the regular Matcha drink though. Of course, when I ask the guy twice who was making the drink for light ice for the iced latte version, he fills the cup up to the brim with ice and there’s barely any drink at that point. Glad I didn’t tip him for that reason. But what little drink I had was pretty good. Maybe I’ll try the hot version next time.

  2. Nice!

    Yeah one of my favourite matcha brands is “Matcha Love.” they do some really nice fruit enhanced matcha blends; one of which is blueberry jasmine.

  3. With more sugar than 3 Donuts it is good to hear this is this delicious! Is the blueberry-matcha flavor combo popular in general? This might be the first time I have seen it.

    1. I don’t think blueberry-matcha normally is a popular flavor combo in general. I mean Arizona Iced Tea has blueberry Green Tea. Short of that, I can’t really think of many blueberry-matcha related things in fast food or items you can buy off the shelves in a supermarket. I think the regular iced matcha drink still tastes better than this blueberry version though. I’m curious to see what the drink tastes like in the hot latte version.
      I know the iced Sugerplum macchiato back in December tasted a little different than the hot/warm macchiato did.

  4. I had the hot Blueberry Matcha Latte, and thought it was very good. I don’t really like regular matcha drinks without an added flavor (it’s an acquired taste because my brother loves them). I would definitely get it again.

    1. I am learning that to some people matcha tastes too “grassy,” I think it’s kind of like a beet/cilantro etc. situation. Love it or hate it depending on your taste buds. For me? Bring on the matcha!

      1. I tried the green macha cold drink. It was horrible. Smelled like shrimp and tasted like dandelion. Nasty never again.
        .

  5. The first time I got this drink, I really liked it. The last 2 times it just taste like iced milk. I’m really not one to complain about food and drinks but it is a little disappointing to take your first drink and not be able to taste the blueberry.
