Matcha latte aka green tea latte is my latest discovery. Latest, as in, I’ve been obsessed with it for the last 6 months.
At first, the new obsession meant going to my local Japanese cafe and buying the biggest cup. Then we went to Japan, I stocked up on matcha powder and perfected the recipe for my own, homemade matcha latte.
Unlike with coffee, I prefer my milk to be on the hotter side (I can set the temperature on the frother I use) and add a little bit of honey to slightly cut through the bitterness.
- 2 tsp (or 3-4 if you use chashaku) matcha powder
- 1/2 tsp honey
- 1 tbsp warm water
- 200ml warm frothed milk
- Put matcha, honey and water in a bowl and mix well until smooth and foamy. I use a Japanese matcha set (bowl, scoop and whisk) I received from my friend, but a regular bowl + spoon or mini-whisk will work as well.
- Pour the matcha mixture into a cup, add the warm frothed milk and drink immediately. Enjoy 🙂
