If you're a fan of green tea, you'll love matcha. Matcha is a type of green tea that is made by grinding green tea leaves into a fine powder. This gives matcha a unique flavour and texture that is quite different from other types of green tea. In addition to its distinct taste, matcha is also known for its many health benefits, such as being high in antioxidants and providing a boost of energy without the jitters.
If you're curious about how to make matcha at home, you're in luck! In this post, I'll be sharing a delicious matcha recipe that's easy to make and perfect for any time of day.
- 1/2 tsp matcha powder (I love matcha union)
- 75ml of warm water
- Top up with a milk of your choice hot or cold (Oatly milk is always a win for me)
Begin by heating up water to around 175°F (80°C). You don't want boiling water as it can ruin the flavour of the matcha.
Whisk to combine the matcha and water (froth is always a good sign that there is no bits and the matcha and water have been blended together - I love using my hand held milk frother, you can get these from amazon)
Heat up your milk of choice and pour it over the matcha mixture (I love frothing my warm milk for a matcha latte at home vibe).
If you're making an iced matcha latte, let the mixture cool down and then add ice cubes.
Serve your matcha tea hot or iced and enjoy!
Matcha is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of recipes, from smoothies to baked goods. Once you've mastered the basics of making matcha, you can experiment with different flavours and combinations to create your own unique matcha creations.
In conclusion, matcha is a delicious and healthy beverage that is easy to make at home. With just a few simple ingredients, you can enjoy the rich and creamy taste of matcha whenever you like. So why not give it a try and see for yourself how tasty and refreshing this tea can be?
