Matcha Green Tea Latte

Matcha green tea can be enjoyed in so many ways; it is certainly not limited to the traditional hot tea and water beverage many would expect!

One of the most enjoyable ways to drink matcha tea is in a green tea matcha latte. The smooth, slightly bittersweet taste of the matcha tea is the perfect combination with creamy milk and a little natural sweetener (if desired).

How to Make a Matcha Tea Latte

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon of matcha powder
  • 60 ml boiling water (per cup)
  • 190ml milk (per cup)

(Almond milk is particularly tasty with matcha)

  • Agave, honey or sugar (to taste)

Method:

  • Boil water
  • Sift the matcha powder into a cup
  • If you want a hot latte, warm the milk on the stovetop (do not boil)
  • Whisk 1 teaspoon of match powdered tea per serving with 60 ml of boiling water per serve, until fully dissolved
  • When powder is fully dissolved into a smooth paste, add milk and mix well.
  • Your matcha latte should be a light, vibrant green colour!
  • Sweeten to taste, if desired, preferably with agave or honey.
  • For extra appeal, sprinkle a little matcha powder on top of the latte for decoration.

Tips

  • For variety, add vanilla, almond, chai spice, cinnamon, coconut, or mint flavours
  • Quantities are variable. Some may prefer a stronger brew, others may prefer it weaker.
  • To make an iced matcha latte, simply use cold milk.
  • Milk may be frothed as one would when making a cafe latte, if desired.
  • Do not use artificial sweeteners with matcha tea. Not only are they dreadful for your health and wellbeing (and why mess with such a beneficial wellness product as matcha?), but they will negatively impact the flavour of the matcha.

Matcha tea is truly like powdered gold – the ambrosia or nectar of the gods, delicious hot or cold, it should be savoured – and there is no better way to do so than in a matcha tea latte.
