Matcha Green Tea Latte

P1090242

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.”

 

Cooking notes:

  • 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.

Original recipe

 

Matcha Green Tea Latte
From Just One Cookbook

Yield: 1 serving

  • 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)

 

  1. 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.)
  2. Add water and whisk to form a smooth, foamy paste.  This will help get rid of lumps in the latte.
  3. Combine milk and sugar (if using) in a small saucepan.
  4. Heat milk mixture over medium heat until scalding hot.  Do not bring it to a full boil. Remove from heat.
  5. 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).
  6. Add hot milk mixture to the cup with the green tea paste.
  7. Whisk vigorously.  If you have a frother, you can froth the latte.
  8. If desired, dust top with green tea powder.
