  • Brewing Guide

    Matcha Latte Recipe:

    1 tsp (2g) matcha powder
    1/4 cup (60ml) water at 176F (80C)
    1/2 cup (120ml) milk
    1 tsp sugar (optional)

     

    1. Sift matcha powder into a bowl.

    2. Soften the bamboo whisk by submerging it in hot water for 30 seconds before whisking.

    3. Add water to the matcha powder. Whisk vigorously back and forth in a straight line until frothy and no clumps remain for about 30 seconds. (The placement of your whisk should be near the bottom of the bowl).

    4. Lift the whisk near the surface and whisk in a zigzag direction for 10-15 seconds to break the big bubbles to create a microfoam.

    5. Mix sugar with milk until sugar has dissolved. 

    6. Pour whisked matcha onto milk and enjoy!

     

    *Feel free to adjust the amount of milk or sugar as desired. For a stronger matcha latte, add only 1/4 cup milk. 

     

    Katelyn's Tips:

    • Matcha has a tendency to clump, so sifting ensures a smoother texture. In the case you do not have a sieve, take the edge of your tea scoop or spoon and draw vertical and horizontal lines across the powder to separate as many clumps as possible. Envision drawing a 4x4 tic-tac-toe grid. 

    • Whisking vigorously means to whisk at a fast pace so you can aerate the matcha. Keep the whisk in one plane as you whisk back and forth. Avoid pressing the whisk into the bottom of the bowl although gently scraping the bowl sometimes cannot be avoided.
