Ingredients you'll need
for making
Matcha Milk Tea

  • Authentic Japanese made Matcha Powder

  • Creamer, typically we use 1 cup almond milk
  • 3-4 table spoons of hot water

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, balance is key! 

Scoop 1-1/2 tablespoons of your fine matcha powder into your bowl and add your 3-4 tablespoons of hot water into the bowl. Using a whisk or the bamboo brush, mix the matcha powder and water together 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 (up and down motions being sure to mix thoroughly) 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 depending on how fast your motions are, you should have a frothy consistency of your matcha powder mixed with water. Let it sit for another minute and then you can pour the mixture into your preferred 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

Step 3

The last step, add 1 cup of almond milk into your preferred cup and stir well. You may add ice to the end of this if you’d like it if it’s a hot summer day, perfectly refreshing and absolutely delish! If not, then you’re all set, enjoy a great cup of matcha milk tea. To ensure you get the best flavors, don’t skimp out on getting low end matcha powder, this is where all the flavor comes and it’s super important!
