Making Matcha

Homemade-MatchaIn the last couple of years, I’ve really come to love matcha tea. I was first introduced to it by a fellow coffee-loving friend, and I fell in love with it.

I’ve been a coffee drinker almost my whole life (since I was seven thanks to my Paw-Paw). When I was in college I think I just about poisoned my body with coffee I drank so much of it pulling all-nighters for my fashion classes.

What I love about matcha is how my body reacts to it. It balances me out. It gives me energy that lasts throughout the day — not a high. I don’t have any stomach aches or digestive problems or withdrawal headaches. Now, I still drink a few cups of coffee a week, I just don’t drink it like I used to. I love that I can equally enjoy a tea latte as a substitute — and drink it twice a day.

I wanted to share my mad love for this drink and my recipe!

Matcha Latte

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Heat water on the stove. Bring to a boil.
  2. Combine water, matcha and honey in your mug and use milk frother to mix well. I do this because matcha easily separates and settles to the bottom and this helps prevent a lot of that.
  3. Heat milk on stove until hot, not boiling.
  4. Froth hot milk in a mug. I use this handy little frother. It works well and it’s super affordable!
  5. Pour over matcha to combine.
