Japanese Green Tea & Las Vegas - Green Tea Mania's Selfish Guide

Are you currently visiting Las Vegas? Take a break from the luxuriant casinos and get yourself a healthy, antioxidant-rich drink to get the energy you need in order to keep your head in this exciting city.

I like Las Vegas, and I visit once in a while for a weekend getaway since it is only one short direct flight from Portland, where I live.

I don't gamble (OK, to be honest, I probably put about $20 for the entire weekend in Las Vegas), but I do love the food and city-like atmosphere since I grew up in Tokyo; maybe I resonate.

Although matcha tea is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Las Vegas’ specific food and beverages, there are plenty of places around the Strip that are dedicated to tea enthusiasts. But if you would love to taste a unique flavor, this tea may be perfect for you. Do you know where you can find the best options? At those sites that offer you an overview of all sorts of casino promotions. Check here for free and have a blast with the deals.

To make things easier for you, I created a list of the top places where you can get your favorite Japanese matcha tea and take some rest after some intense gambling, online or offline.

Everything matcha

If you consider yourself a matcha tea enthusiast, you must not miss Matcha Café Maiko, a Japanese dessert shop that sells products made exclusively from green tea. Maiko is by far the matcha heaven of Vegas, as it has lots of options available on the menu, like shaved ice or soft-serve ice cream. If you’re looking for an authentic experience at a reasonable price, you have to stop by. They even have green tea-infused soft serve with a gold leaf inside a cone for only $8!

I wrote about this shop in my other blog post, Green Tea Mania's Selfish Guide to Japanese Green Tea and Hawaii. You can click here to see the Hawaii version of this shop. I love this shop.

This fancy place can be found at 3400 S Jones Blvd 3. Las Vegas, NV 89146

Cute looking glasses

Next on the list, we have Mr. Tea, a coffee, tea, and ice cream shop that serves its drinks in glasses that are shaped like lightbulbs and decorated with cartoonish faces. There are many matcha tea combinations you have to try out, such as the matcha latte with adjustable levels of sweetness. They also have everyone’s favorite matcha-rolled ice cream and waffles.

Sweet Matcha Desert

For those who have a sweet tooth, we warmly recommend Is Sweet. This glamorous dessert place has the classic matcha frappes and teas, but they also sell some delicious crepes mixed with everyone’s favorite green tea ice cream. Eating this fine dessert is just as great as winning the jackpot at a slot machine.

Is Sweet Las Vegas

You can grab your tasty matcha at 5288 Spring Mountain Road, Suite 101, Las Vegas, NV 89146

Hotels have amazing Tea Lounges

If you’re having a lazy day and you decide to stay in the hotel room, you can take your matcha tea products directly from the restaurant. The highest-quality green tea can be found at the Tea Lounge in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. They serve the finest infusions in the world, and the view is simply stunning—a floor-to-ceiling panorama of Las Vegas Boulevard and its prestigious casinos. There are vegan and gluten-free options and special offers for kids available on the menu, so the whole family is welcome to the Tea Lounge.

This stunning hotel is located at 3752 Las Vegas Boulevard South. Las Vegas, NV 89109

A maison for tea lovers

Another elegant location where you can have a fresh drink is the Tea Maison, a juice bar with many specialties like avocado slush, boba milk tea, matcha tea, and even mango pomelo sago. This is the perfect place to spend your afternoon with some friends and get energized before the poker tournament or that legendary party.

This guide is supposed to be Matcha Mania's selfish guide, I know. 

But some of you already know I’m also a little obsessed with coffee.

So, gather around as I spill the beans on my favorite caffeine oasis in the heart of Las Vegas – the ultimate place to get my coffee fix and indulge in the most delightful desserts. It's like a slice of Italy right here in the City of Lights. 

Eataly has a special soft spot in my heart because it reminds me of my trip to Italy, where I experienced a unique coffee culture where Espresso took all the spotlight. (Read here the blog post about my visit to Italy.)

Eataly at Park MGM uses Lavazza coffee beans (One of the biggest coffee brands in the world and a symbol of the Italian coffee experience) to make their espresso-based drinks. 

They also have a diverse collection of irresistible-looking sweet treats on display. 

Get your coffee fix and make your dessert dreams come true at Eataly, Park MGM, located at 3770 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109

This wraps up our top matcha tea locations in Las Vegas, where you can have a healthy snack and a refreshing drink. Who would have thought that Sin City was not just a place filled with temptation but also a sanctuary for tea?

Las Vegas Speak Easy

P.S: Sorry, nothing to do with tea, but Las Vegas has a Speakeasy and this is the entrance. Can you tell where I am? :)  

Matcha and Sun is Vacation
