If you're a matcha lover, you've probably indulged in a creamy and frothy matcha latte at your favorite café. But it's just as easy to make one at home. We're gonna take you through the basics of making the perfect matcha latte in the comfort of your own kitchen. Whether you're a matcha newbie or a seasoned pro, read on to learn the secrets to crafting a creamy and velvety matcha latte that will satisfy your cravings and impress your taste buds!

Ingredients:

Equipment:

  • Matcha whisk or a small whisk/frother
  • Matcha bowl or a small mixing bowl
  • Measuring spoon
  • Saucepan or milk frother (if using steamed milk)
  • Mug or cup

Instructions:

Step 1: Measure and Sift Matcha

  • Using a measuring spoon, scoop out the desired amount of matcha powder into a matcha bowl or a small mixing bowl. A typical serving size is about 1 teaspoon of matcha powder for an 8-ounce cup of latte, but you can adjust to your preference
  • Sift the matcha powder through a fine-mesh strainer to remove any lumps and ensure a smooth and creamy texture in your latte

Step 2: Add Hot Water and Whisk

  • Heat water to about 175°F, which is below boiling. Boiling water can scorch the matcha and result in a bitter taste
  • Pour a small amount of hot water (about 2-3 ounces) into the matcha bowl with the sifted matcha powder
  • Using a matcha whisk or a small whisk/frother, vigorously whisk the matcha and hot water in a zigzag motion until the matcha is fully dissolved and a frothy layer forms on top

Step 3: Heat and Froth Milk (Optional)

  • If you prefer a hot matcha latte, heat your milk of choice in a saucepan or using a milk frother until it reaches your desired temperature
  • If you prefer a frothy latte, you can use a milk frother to create foam, or simply shake a lidded jar containing heated milk to create froth

Step 4: Pour Milk into Matcha

  • Slowly pour the heated milk into the matcha bowl with the whisked matcha, holding back the foam with a spoon to allow the milk to flow evenly
  • Gently stir the matcha and milk together with a spoon to incorporate the flavors and create a smooth and creamy latte

Step 5: Sweeten (Optional)

  • If desired, you can add a sweetener of your choice, such as honey or agave syrup, to taste. Start with a small amount and adjust to your preference

Step 6: Enjoy Your Perfect Matcha Latte!

  • Carefully pour your matcha latte into a mug or cup and admire the vibrant green color and frothy texture
  • Take a sip and savor the creamy, earthy, and slightly sweet flavors of your homemade matcha latte! Enjoy it as a cozy morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up

Making the perfect matcha latte at home is easier than you might think with just a few simple steps and quality ingredients. Experiment with different milk options, sweeteners, and play around until you find your perfect combination!
