Make a Matcha Latte

Matcha Latte – In a Bowl

Nothing gets the morning moving like a tea latte. But sometimes, you need a little extra boost to kickstart the day. Fortunately, there’s a vibrant green tea latte that’s both delicious and energizing. Best of all, it’s super easy to make. Here’s how to whisk up a Matcha Latte at home.

Ingredients

  • 2 Perfect Matcha Spoonfuls of matcha green tea
  • Matcha bowl and whisk
  • 250 ml (8 oz) milk of your choice
  • 125 ml (4 oz) of warm water (175°F/75°C)
  • 1 tsp agave (optional)

Directions

In a Matcha Bowl
Step 1
Add 8 oz of milk , soy or almond milk to your milk frother and froth at medium heat. If you don’t have a milk frother, shake milk in a sealed mason jar for 15 seconds, remove lid and place it in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Step 2
Add 2 level Matcha Spoonfuls of tea to your Matcha Bowl
Step 3
Pour 4oz/120ml of 175°F / 75°C water into the matcha bowl, covering the powder.
Step 4
Using your matcha whisk, briskly whisk the tea in an “M” formation until no matcha clumps remain and a frothy layer forms on the top of the beverage.
Step 5
If you like your lattes sweet, stir 1 or 2 tsp of agave into your matcha.
Step 6
Pour all of the Matcha from your Matcha Bowl directly into a 16 oz cup.
Step 7
Grab your frothed milk and pour it over your matcha mixture.

Pro Tip: Use a large spoon to hold back the foam and allow the liquid to pour in first. As the liquid runs out, release the spoon to let the foam fill the balance of the cup

    How big is the perfect matcha spoon compared to the regular perfect spoon?

    • DAVIDsTEA December 7, 2015 at 4:41 pm #

      Hey Meredith! The Perfect Matcha Spoon measures 1/2 tsp and the Perfect Spoon measures 2.5 tsp. Hope that helps clarify!

    will David’s tea employees make these for you in store?

    • DAVIDsTEA December 30, 2015 at 10:03 pm #

      Absolutely! You can get lattes to go in-store. You’ll just have to choose which matcha you’d like it with 🙂

    I know that flavoured matcha teas are different and that employees use the perfect spoon for them. How many spoonfuls do you need to use for a latte when it’s a flavoured matcha?

    • DAVIDsTEA April 22, 2016 at 3:36 pm #

      Hey Zoe! For flavoured matcha lattes, we use one Perfect Spoonful.
