How to Make Matcha Milk Tea in 3 Easy Steps (Full Recipe)

Matcha milk tea. Green milk tea with bubbles. Iced matcha latte. This drink has so many names but one true identity. Its beautiful dark-green hue and delicious flavor make it very popular.

Boba shops and cafes have this drink. Your most popular coffee shops have this drink. It’s almost everywhere! And we love it.

It’s usually made with matcha powder, creamer, and additional sweeteners if needed. However, we’ll be brewing it a bit differently here.

The flavor is deep, aromatic, and earthy. With a subtle sweet after taste. It’s perfectly balanced for those that do not like a lot of sweetness in their bubble tea or cafe drinks. Read our matcha milk tea recipe, step by step guide below.

How to Make Matcha Milk Tea

Step 1

Let’s get started!

Grab a bowl, your authentic Japanese matcha powder, a whisk (we typically like using a bamboo brush for this), and your 3-4 tablespoons of hot water. Keep in mind, this water should not be boiling, but it shouldn’t be room temperature either.

Scoop 1-1/2 tablespoons of your fine matcha powder and 3-4 tablespoons of hot water into your bowl. Using a whisk or the bamboo brush, mix the matcha powder and water until you have a frothy consistency. It helps if you keep your wrist in one position and mix as if you’re writing W’s. Back and forth rapidly. Remember, speed is the key to success when frothing your matcha tea! 

Find inexpensive measuring spoons here if you don’t have any. 

Step 2

Great, after a few minutes you should have a frothy consistency. Let it sit for another minute and then you can pour the mixture into your preferred serving cup.

Now we can begin to add the rest of the ingredients. Add your 1-1/2 tablespoons of vanilla into the cup along with your 2 tablespoons of honey. If you’re wondering, we don’t add too much vanilla since we light it to be very light. So choose how you’d prefer to experience your matcha milk tea.

Step 3

The last step. Add 1 cup of almond milk into your preferred cup and stir well. You may add ice if you’d like too. It might be a hot summer day when you’re making this.

If not, then you’re all set! Enjoy a great cup of matcha milk tea. Let us know how you did and if you have any suggestions and like always, just talk about boba!
