Matcha Lattes can be made hot or cold! If you’re missing your usual iced matcha latte from Starbucks or your neighborhood coffee shop, this recipe is for you! As a result, you’ll be able to make your favorite drink at home!



Iced Matcha

1. Sift 1 teaspoon of matcha powder to ensure that all of the lil’ bits of matcha are broken up

2. In a measuring cup or bowl, add the matcha powder. Pour in the 1 to 2 tablespoons of hot water and whisk until the matcha has fully incorporated into the water. This should create almost a bit of a paste.

3. Pour in the a little bit more water and mix to your desired thinness. Transfer to the fridge or freezer to chill for about 15 minutes.

4. Fill a glass full of ice and add your milk of choice so the glass is about 3/4 of the way full. If you like, this is a great time to add any sweetener. Lastly, pour in the chilled matcha and enjoy.

Hot Matcha

1.  Sift 1 teaspoon of matcha powder to ensure that all of the lil’ bits of matcha are broken up. Then add any type of sweetener of your liking.

2.  Pour in 1 tablespoon of hot water into the bottom of the mug.

3. Using a matcha whisk or an electric whisk, mix it up vigoroursly until a loose foamy paste forms. This part is very important because you want to make sure all and any bits of matcha have dissolved.

4. Pour in 1/4 cup of hot water and whisk again. It should be bright green at this point.

5. Warm 1/2 cup of any milk of your choice in the microwave or on the stove.

6. Whisk the milk vigorously to froth the milk a bit. Pour milk and whisk the entire matcha again, so the froths the milk a bit more.

 As you become accustomed to Matcha, you can play with the quantities of powder vs. water to find exactly how it suits you. Some people prefer it very thick, while others like there’s light and thin.
