Matcha is a high-grade green tea that is ground into a fine powder. While traditional green tea is steeped in hot water, matcha is whisked together with hot, but not boiling water, to make a frothy drink.
What Does Matcha Taste Like?
For many, matcha can be an acquired taste but I LOVE it! It has slightly sweet, nutty, grassy taste that pairs incredibly well with almond or oat milk.
Does Matcha Contain Caffeine?
Yes! While it contains less caffeine than coffee, matcha does have some caffeine. I personally like to drink it matcha in the afternoon over coffee if I need a little pick-me up.
What is in a Matcha Latte?
Hot Water: use hot, but not boiling, water to dissolve the matcha powder before pouring it over ice.
Matcha Powder: you want to use a high quality matcha powder for the best flavor.
Vanilla Extract: this is optional but it really adds the best flavor to the latte.
Maple Syrup: for a little sweetness!
Non-Dairy Milk: any non-dairy milk will work! Almond, oat, cashew, a blend – pick your favorite!
I hope you give this Iced Matcha Latte a try! It’s creamy, just the right amount of sweet, and so delicious!
