Matcha latte is definitely one of my most favorite drinks. It perfectly combines my love for tea with my strong passion for drinking natural homemade nut milk. High quality matcha has a palate pleasing milky taste, so it makes a great combination when added to milk of any type(though I use and prefer vegetable or vegan milk instead). It’s been about 7 months that I discovered the delight of matcha latte and since then, it’s almost an addiction for me: I need to sip at least one per week.

So, to make a matcha latte, I use almond milk in this recipe. It can be substituted with your preferred choise of milk.  It has a little natural sweetness and is really delicious. The matcha green tea that we will use in today’s recipe, it can be found on the internet as there are currently many good shopping sites that sell a variety of matcha grades and price ranges .  Or  you can find matcha green tea at your local organic store or tea shop.

What is Matcha anyway?

Matcha green tea, is actually a very fine powdered form of the green tea plant(Cammelia Sinensis). It is a tea which is more expensive than normal tea and is not consumed the same way: rather, its an element of preparation as a tea to infuse. And one of the recipes most well known, it is the one of the matcha latte, we are talking about today! Find out more about matcha and it’s long and fascinating  history.
