|Grand Cru Matcha, bamboo scoop, whisk, and bowl|
In my year before university, I worked full-time at Starbucks. I got very frustrated cleaning the container for the matcha powder, so I decided I needed to test out my nemesis (it poofs powder everywhere if you’re not careful). It turned out to be delicious!
Matcha is essentially the espresso of green tea: it’s super highly concentrated, so with just hot water it can be pretty overwhelming if you’re not a plain green tea drinker. Some people sweeten it with agave or honey, but I like it the way it is.
There are lots of health benefits to matcha, so check them out!
To make the green tea latte, start with a couple scoops of matcha, and mix it with a tablespoon or so of hot water.
Whisk the matcha and hot water well, to remove any chunks, and get that beaaaautiful froth going. You can use a regular whisk, of course, but since I got this adorable bamboo one, I had to use it.
I heat up the amount of milk that I want on the stove or in the microwave, and gently pour it into the frothed tea.
Obviously you can pour it into a real mug and drink it from there, but I love how beautiful this bowl is, so I just drink it straight from there.
Let me know if you’ve tried them before or make them at home!
