Matcha Much?

Making a Matcha or Japanese green tea can be a soothing and calming part of your day. Take the time to prepare a bowl of Matcha in the traditional way, or with a modern twist – with steamed milk – in a latte. You don’t need an espresso steamer, you can simply heat the milk gently then whisk it slightly to froth.


Sift 2g (1/2 tsp) of pure organic matcha powder through a tea strainer into a glass or mug. Add a little hot (not boiling) water and whisk to dissolve and foam slightly.

Add steamed milk for a warming latte, or ice and cold milk for a cold drink. Makes a 14 to 16 oz serving.

Optional: add a little simple syrup or vanilla syrup if your sweet tooth is acting up.
