Today I will provide brief instructions on a Basic Matcha Latté that I enjoy quite a bit. I will include information based on my specific recipe and preferences. You may find your tastes will require minor adjustments to the recipe but this should get you started.
What You Will Need :
2 teaspoons Ceremonial Grade Matcha
Note: The better the matcha the better the flavor. However, in most cases you do not need a high grade Matcha to make a delicious Matcha Latté. Of course, this is based my opinion.
Enough just under boiling water to create a Matcha paste
1/2 cup hot 2% Milk
1/4 cup hot Half & Half
Whipped Cream (Optional)
Bowl for mixing & drinking your Matcha Latté
1 cup Microwavable Cup
Add 2 teaspoons Matcha powder into your bowl
Slowly add a small amount of the water to Matcha, whisking the Matcha until you have a semi-thick paste.
In a separate microwavable cup add 1/2 cup 2% Milk & 1/4 cup Half & Half and heat for about 1 minute and 20 seconds. Remove just prior to boil. Times may vary based on microwave. You can also heat the ingredients on the stove.
Slowly combine the milk mixture into the bowl with the Matcha using the whisk. Once all of the ingredients have been combined you can add sweetener if desired. Whisk until well combined and frothy. If desired add whipped cream as a final step.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Please give me feedback if you decide to try this recipe.
Thank you & Enjoy!
