Matcha green tea latte

A couple of weeks ago, the folks at Matcha Source sent me package container some recipes, a small packet of matcha green tea powder, and a hand electric frother.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do to try out the matcha green tea powder.  I decided to try making a simple latte from their recipes.

Directions

  • Sift 1 tsp Matcha powder into a cup
  • Melt matcha by adding 2 oz hot water and stirring until matcha becomes a smooth paste
  • Pour 6 oz steamed* milk into a cup
  • Add matcha tea to the milk
  • Scoop foamy milk on top

The matcha latte tasted good.  It had an interesting green color.  Matcha Source's powder appears to have a deeper green color than the powder I've been using for baking.  I think I may use the rest of the powder for my next matcha flavored baked goods because I'm hoping the darker green will come out better for baked goods.  Sometimes the lighter green tea powder I use ends up brown if I don't use enough green tea powder.

I'm lucky to have a lot of local markets that carry matcha green tea powder.  But I know that is not the case for everyone.  I've had a few of my readers inquire into where to buy matcha powder from.  Matcha Source appears to be a good source to buy matcha powder from. I forgot to take a picture of the cute box everything came in, but here's a quick shot of the packet and the frother.

    Hi, I saw your post on FoodGawker and thought I’d click over to read about the matcha latte – I was surprised to see that Matcha Source sent you free stuff, because I just received that exact same package last week from them! Here’s what I did with mine; I made the usual matcha latte as well, but I also made matcha cake truffles:

    I also took the pictures of the box and free stuff, it was quite a cute box! :)

    I love matcha with something creamy. Makes a great smoothie, too. With matcha, it’s easy to be green. ;)

    Yes, I need to try the smoothie sometime! I didn’t have any yogurt when I was making my latte
