If you like matcha green tea and lattes, you should try making this! It’s a really nice drink to sip on a cold day. Also, if you’re a Blades in the Dark fan, you can serve this as “sweet watermoss juice.”
- You can find matcha green tea powder in most Asian grocery stores, as well as on Amazon.
- To make an iced latte, simply stir together cold milk and sugar and add directly to the green tea paste (skip steps 3-6). At the end, add ice cubes.
Matcha Green Tea Latte
From Just One Cookbook
Yield: 1 serving
- 1½ teaspoons matcha green tea powder
- 1 tablespoon hot water hot water (not boiling)
- 1 cup milk of your choice (cow, almond, soy, etc.)
- 1 teaspoon sugar (optional but highly recommended; you may even want to add a bit more depending on your taste)
Sift green tea powder into the drinking cup you plan to use. (You can skip this step, as I did because I’m lazy, but your latte will have tiny lumps in it.)
Add water and whisk to form a smooth, foamy paste. This will help get rid of lumps in the latte.
Combine milk and sugar (if using) in a small saucepan.
Heat milk mixture over medium heat until scalding hot. Do not bring it to a full boil. Remove from heat.
If you have a frother, froth the milk until foamy, about 10 seconds. If you don’t have a frother, you can skip this step (as I did).
Add hot milk mixture to the cup with the green tea paste.
Whisk vigorously. If you have a frother, you can froth the latte.
If desired, dust top with green tea powder.
