Green Tea Latte

Best green tea latte recipeElsie 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.

How to make a green tea latteFor 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.
