Making Matcha tea
Delicious Matcha Lattes
A simple variation of the tea latte, the Matcha latte combines Matcha green tea with hot milk for a tasty (and beautiful!) drink.
The Matcha latte is a wonderful way to enjoy Matcha for those who find drinking straight Matcha too bitter and/or strong.
Follow this step by step guide to make an
8 oz Matcha latte at home.
Measure Your Loose Tea
Step One: Start by measuring ½ - 1 teaspoon cooking grade Matcha. If you are using a bamboo Matcha scoop (chashaku), measure 2-4 almond sized scoops.
Sift the Matcha through a sieve into your mug.
We recommend sifting the Matcha to prevent clumping; however, the Matcha can also be placed directly into your mug without sifting.
Steep Your Tea
Step Two: Next, make a super strength brew by adding 1/3 cup boiling water to your mug filled with Matcha.
Whisk the Matcha and water together until the Matcha appears to be dissolved in the water.
If you do not have a whisk, stir with a spoon vigorously!
Heat & Froth Your Milk
Step Three: Heat 2/3 cup milk until steaming.
Add Your Heated Milk
Step Four: Finally, pour the heated milk into your mug with the Matcha and add sugar or honey to taste.
