Matcha Green Tea Latte
In yesterday's post, I said I wanted to try a green tea latte. So.....here it is!
I used the Kiss Me Organics matcha powder for this.
Matcha Green Tea Latte:
Boil about 1/4 cup water.
Add 1 tsp matcha powder to cup.
Add the boiling water to the cup and whisk until green tea is dissolved.
Add about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup frothed non-dairy milk.
Sweetener to taste (optional)
Here, you can see the tea powder with the water before I added the soymilk:
I think, technically, you're supposed to use a bamboo whisk, but I didn't have one.
When I first tasted it, it was a bit grainy. You should wait a minute for things to settle at the bottom of the cup before drinking. After the 1st minute, no more graininess! I didn't add sweetener, but I might try it next time for a dessert-like drink.
See yesterday's post if you want to enter to win this matcha powder!
