You probably are already familiar with the tastiness and some of the health benefits of drinking matcha. Matcha is essentially green tea leaves that have been milled into a fine powder, so when you drink matcha, you’re consuming tea leaves too. Because matcha powder mixes into almost anything, it’s actually an incredibly versatile ingredient that can be used to make all kinds of drinks and desserts!
One of the trendiest drinks right now is the matcha latte. Cafes serve them frothy, and not only are they bright green, they smell amazing and taste even better. We’re here to teach you how to make your own cafe-quality matcha latte at home, just follow these simple step-by-step instructions.
To Make the Perfect Matcha Latte:
