How I make my matcha latte

Filed under: Tea, Food

🌱🍵 How do I make my matcha latte? That’s a question I generally get asked a lot. So for simplicity’s sake, I have decided to make a blog post with a recipe and photos to help you make your own fantabulous matcha green tea latte. It’s very simple..

🍵 What you’ll need:
+ Chawan (mug of your choice)

+ Chashaku or teaspoon

+ Furui (fine mesh strainer/sifter)

+ Chasen (bamboo whisk) or a milk frother/handheld whisk

+ Teapot

+ thermometer is optional .

🌱 Ingredients:
1-2 tsp matcha (I use organic matcha from Grace & Green )
1/2 cup (120ml) hot water (80C/180F)
1/3-1/2 cup (80-120ml) of your favourite nut milk.

🌱 Milk:
Pour your milk into a microwave safe French Press or a tall glass that will fit your handheld frother, froth it for 20-30s. Heat the milk before boiling point, it will differ slightly depending on the milk you use, I generally use almond, macadamia or coconut milk, so I microwave it for 60s.
I customarily froth my milk before heating it, that way you get a better froth. After heating your milk of choice, remove it from the microwave and let it stand while you make the matcha.

🌱 Matcha:
Sift matcha into a cup. Add the hot water and stir vigorously in a zig zag motion until you obtain a nice froth.

Pour the milk into your cup in a nice stream. You can even get fancy if you’re brave and make art with your foam. Practice makes for nice designs.

Don’t be afraid to experiment. Have fun with it and in time you’ll be mastering the art of latte.
Another option is using stencils which make cute latte options, like you can see from the ones I made below.
Sprinkle matcha, cacao, vanilla, powdered butterfly pea tea, cinnamon or turmeric for a striking contrast, it’s up to you.

I hope this helped and hopefully you can get creative and make many flavoursome matcha tea variants. I recommend you try macadamia or almond milk, it gives a whole different aroma and experience to this tea. I think my favourite matcha latte is with coconut milk.

You are an amazing photographer! May I ask what camera you use? 😊
Thank you. Its not so much about the question of what camera I use but which lens I require for the effect I want? I only use prime lenses and the lenses I use are mostly my macro 1:1 90mm, my 50mm and my 35mm. That’s it! My camera is from 2006 and do not have a live view on my screen making it hard for flat lays and when the 35mm is not working, I just whip out my iPhone and take photos with that. With good lighting (and a studio light) you can pull off nice looking photos with a mobile phone too. On this post, I used my phone and camera with the various lenses. I hope that answered your question. Thanks for your visit and comment. Have a great day.
