Elsie and I each got home espresso machines for Christmas this year (here’s mine, in case you’re curious). Since then we’ve been experimenting making different syrups and latte flavors. I thought I would be fun to try making the perfect green tea latte since I’m a little obsessed with matcha lately.
For one latte you need: 1 cup milk and 1 teaspoon Matcha green tea powder. The powder can easily clump up so finding an efficient way to incorporate it into the milk is essential. I use a tea steeper (from David’s Tea) to sift the powder into the milk, whisking as I do. You could also use a regular size sifter or fine mesh sieve. Just sift the powder on to a small piece of wax or parchment paper and then poor it into the milk and whisk.
Once you have your clump-free green tea milk, now we just need to add heat and froth it up. 🙂 I used my steaming wand on my espresso machine. But you could also do this in a small pot on the stove top. Whisk as the milk heats up to get that frothy latte top.
