Classic matcha latte

Classic matcha latte - Matcha Crew


  • 6g matcha powder
  • 40 ml hot water (not boiling, around 75°C)
  • 250 ml milk (dairy or any plant-based milk like almond, soy, or oat)
  • Sweetener of choice (optional, e.g., honey, sugar, or maple syrup)
  • Ice cubes (for an iced version)


  • Matcha whisk
  • Bowl
  • Milk frother (optional)


  1. Sift the Matcha: Start by sifting your matcha powder into a bowl to avoid clumps. This step is crucial for a smooth latte.

  2. Whisk with Hot Water: Add the hot water to the bowl with matcha. Using a matcha whisk or a regular small whisk, whisk briskly in a W or M motion until the matcha is fully dissolved and there is a light frothy layer on top. It usually takes about 15-30 seconds.

  3. Heat and Froth the Milk: If you're making a hot Matcha Latte, heat your milk until it's warm but not boiling. You can use a milk frother to create foam for a creamier texture. For an iced version, skip the heating and just froth your milk or use it cold.

  4. Combine Matcha and Milk: Pour the matcha mixture into a cup. Slowly add the milk, holding back the foam with a spoon to let the liquid milk blend first. Then, spoon the foam on top.

  5. Sweeten (Optional): Add your preferred sweetener to taste.

  6. For Iced Matcha Latte: If you're making an iced version, fill a glass with ice cubes before pouring the matcha and then the milk over the ice.

  7. Serve and Enjoy: Give your Matcha Latte a final gentle stir and enjoy!
