Recipe: Matcha Latte

I made this latte this morning and it is easily the best thing I’ve had to drink all week. I think it may become a Sunday tradition. Creamy, sweet, frothy, and retains that lovely matcha flavour. I’m considering picking up some flavoured matcha to try different kinds. I’ll make a video sometime of the preparation of the latte.

 

Ingredients

1 tsp matcha green tea powder
2 tsp sugar
3 tbsp warm water
250ml cold milk or 300ml hot milk

How To Prepare

  1. Spoon the matcha green tea powder and the sugar into a mug or cup.
  2. Add the warm water and mix with a spoon or with a whisk until it is a smooth dark green paste to ensure no lumps form.
  3. Warm the milk in a small saucepan and pour into the mug until nearly full. Use cold milk for an iced latte.
  4. Use a whisk to mix the paste and milk together until smooth and light green in colour.
  5. If you so wish, you can add a few sprinkles of matcha green tea powder on the top for decoration. Or add ice for an extra cold iced latte.
