Instead getting a dose of my usual boba milk tea, I opted for a matcha latte this afternoon.
It had been a while that I have had in my head to make a matcha latte. I made a trip to a Japanese market to load on matcha powder. I am fond of tea and milk and mixing them together seem so fitting for an afternoon drink.
Matcha is both a stimulant and a relaxant, perfect for focusing on work, meditation, exercise or play. It is an antioxidant wonder (17 times of wild blueberries) which is great for health.
This drink is great to add a little honey to sweeten the taste and bitterness of the matcha. It is also a great refreshment for a nice little gathering with friends.
Serving: 1 cup
1 tsp matcha powder
2 tsp water
8 oz milk, soy milk, or almond milk
Mix together matcha powder and water in a cup, until powder all dissolve.
Bring milk to a boil in a small pot on medium heat. Stir frequently.
Pour hot milk to matcha mixture while stirring.
Add honey to sweeten the drink.
