Iced Matcha Tea Latte


In an effort to use up the last of a bag of matcha I've been living off these iced matcha tea lattes for the past week.

These lattes can be found all over, but why pay the price of the coffee shop? They are super easy to make. It takes a lot less time than going to the cafe and can be enjoyed in the comfort of your home. In three or four minutes, you could be sat back and indulging. The smooth clean flavours of the matcha will wash over your tongue. It's ice cold perfection! There is, of course, another plus side. You've got your matcha, you've made a latte and now you have some left over to get baking with.

If you're still not convinced that it's worth the effort to make yourself a matcha tea latte, then consider that with normal tea you don't get half the benefits of a matcha one. With matcha, you consume the whole leaf (and all its benefits).

Be sure to check back in two weeks time for a full feature of matcha in the Ingredient Insight.

Recipe

Ingredients:

10g matcha tea powder (premium grade)
350ml cold milk
Sugar to taste/ sugar syrup
Good handful of ice

Method:
  • Form a paste with sifted matcha powder, some sugar and a little milk. 
  • Add 300ml of milk, followed by a good amount of ice. If you have a cocktail shaker, that's perfect. 
  • Give the drink a strong shake to fully combine everything. 
  • If you fear for matcha lumps, pass into the serving glass through a fine sieve. Remember to add more ice after. 
  • Pour over the remaining milk (carefully and slowly), to leave with a beautiful 2 tone effect.
  • Enjoy this delicious drink with some fresh baked goods or by itself in the sun.
