How To Make Almond Matcha Latte Tea?

In a mug, make a paste of the Matcha and water* using a hand-held whisk (the small electric kind works well). *Water temperature! Ideally, because Matcha is a green tea, the water you use shouldn’t be boiling.

It should be about 80°C (176°F). Unless you have a fancy kettle that boils at different temperatures, you’re unlikely to be able to heat your water so precisely, so you should just click your kettle off before it boils or allows it to sit for a few minutes after it’s boiled. That way, the temperature will be just right.

Next, add the agave nectar and spices.

Now, make your almond milk hot and frothy. If you have a coffee machine with a steamer, you can use that. Otherwise, heat your milk in the microwave or on the hob and use a hand-held whisk to get it nice and frothy.

Transfer the milk to your mug, mix with the Matcha paste, drink and enjoy the sprightliness that will come.

Why not try?

Swap ingredients around to make this work for you and your taste buds. Here are swaps we’ve tried:

  • Cow’s milk (semi-skimmed or skimmed) instead of almond milk
  • Coconut milk, oat milk, rice milk and other dairy-free alternatives all work well instead of almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract, sugar or coconut sugar to sweeten, instead of the agave nectar.

Prefer Loose Tea?

If you like to use loose-leaf tea then you could always brew some chai whole leaf tea. You’ll need 2 teaspoons of chai tea and to brew it for 5 minutes in about 75ml (2¾fl oz) freshly boiled water. You’ll then need to strain the leaves before adding your hot frothy milk.
