A matcha latte is a type of hot tea drink that is made with matcha powder, hot water, and milk. The powder is whisked together with the water to create a frothy mixture, and then the milk is added and the latte is served.
Matcha powder is made from green tea leaves that have been ground into a fine powder. It has been used in Japanese tea ceremonies for centuries, and has only recently become popular in the western world.
The first recorded recipe for a matcha latte was in a Japanese tea manual from the early 1800s. This manual contained instructions on how to prepare and serve tea, as well as how to make different types of tea drinks.
When making a matcha latte, it is important to use good quality matcha powder. Avoid buying matcha from lower end grocery stores, as the quality won't be as robust. You can purchase matcha from specialized tea stores, online, or from Asian Markets. Once you have the powder, prepare your latte with 1 teaspoon of matcha and 8 ounces of hot water. If you'd like it to be sweeter, you can add some honey or sweetener to taste. After you have whisked it together, add 8 ounces of hot milk and enjoy!
