Plus, we’ll introduce you to the Matcha Essentials Bundle, making your matcha latte journey even easier.
The Art of the Matcha Latte
A matcha latte is a delicious blend of rich, vegetal matcha and creamy, frothy milk. It's a perfect balance of earthy and sweet, offering a comforting and energizing beverage. The key to a great matcha latte lies in the quality of the matcha and the texture of the milk.
What You Need
- High-quality matcha powder
- Hot water (not boiling)
- Milk of your choice (dairy or plant-based)
- Sweetener (optional)
- Matcha whisk or regular whisk
- Milk frother or a small pot
Step-by-Step Guide to the Perfect Latte
1. Sift the Matcha: Start by sifting 1-2 teaspoons of matcha powder into a bowl. This prevents clumps and ensures a smooth texture.
2. Whisk the Matcha: Add about 2 tablespoons of hot water. Whisk vigorously in a zigzag motion using a matcha whisk or a regular whisk until the matcha is fully dissolved and there’s a light froth on top.
3. Heat and Froth the Milk: Heat your milk until it’s just warm. Avoid boiling. Froth the milk using a milk frother or whisk it in a pot to create foam.
4. Combine and Enjoy: Pour the frothy milk over the whisked matcha. For a touch of sweetness, add your preferred sweetener. Stir gently and enjoy your creamy matcha latte.
