How to get your hands on the viral pink matcha in Dubai and Abu Dhabi

Sip your way through the strawberry social media sensation. 

Whether you refer to it as cloud matcha, pink matcha, or strawberry matcha this viral sensation has taken social media by storm. The layered beverage combines the earthy notes of matcha with the sweet taste of strawberries. 

The drink is constructed by blending strawberries with milk or cream to create a fluffy “cloud” layer. This rests on a base of traditionally whisked matcha, resulting in a stunning visual contrast. A gentle stir creates a beautiful pink and green swirl, perfect for the ‘Gram.
