It seems daunting and complicated but nailing your own matcha latte can be life changing. Not only does it mean you can save your hard-earned cash and not have to dig deep to afford your morning matcha latte but it also means that you can jazz it up to the way that YOU like it! We’ve seen tonnes of amazing Matcha Maiden lattes, each with their every own little twist. Here is our go-to, basic matcha latte recipe.
You will need:
- A stove top or microwave
- A tea spoon
- Hot water (not boiling)
- Matcha Maiden (our pure matcha or our any of our blends)
- Your choice of milk
- Your choice of sweetener (optional)
- A mug/cup
- Put ½ a teaspoon of Matcha Maiden matcha powder into a sauce pan (if youre using the stove top) or straight into a mug (if you’re using the microwave)
- Add in hot water- just enough to cover the matcha*
- Mix to dissolve the matcha and form a thin paste
- Add your choice of milk to the dissolved matcha(soy and coconut are out choice of plant-based mylks because they add a touch of sweetness and balances out the matcha amazingly)
- Heat up on the stove top or place in the microwave (if you’ve dissolved your matcha in a mug) until hot.
- Add your choice of sweetener (our favourite is rice malt syrup)
- Top with a sprinkle of matcha or cinnamon!
*Make sure not to drown the matcha in water as this will result in a watery matcha latte. Add just enough to cover the matcha and dissolve it. It’s also important not to use boiling water as this burns the matcha and can result in bitterness.
