I wake up in the morning with a rejuvenating, nutritious matcha latte. This fast and easy recipe compliments the fragrant matcha green tea powder with creamy milk and a little sugar (optional) for a flavour balance.
If you find it is powdery, strain it slowly through cotton cloth square or paper towel
1 tsp matcha green tea powder
2 tsp sugar
3 tbsp warm water
250ml cold milk or 300ml hot milk
Spoon the matcha green tea powder and the sugar into a mug or cup.
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.
Warm the milk in a small saucepan and pour into the mug until nearly full. Use cold milk for an iced latte.
Use a whisk to mix the paste and milk together until smooth and light green in colour.
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.
