TOKYO FOG TEA LATTE
Makes 2 glasses // Prep Time: 5 minutes // Active Time: 5 minutes
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- 1 tsp matcha. We recommend Organic Ceremonial Matcha by BAAHTCHA MATCHA.
- 2 cups milk
- Dash of vanilla
- 1 tbsp honey, maple syrup, vanilla syrup, or your choice of sweetener
Add matcha powder to a bowl or mug. Heat the water to 190° f (below boiling) and pour over matcha. Whisk or froth the matcha until well blended and you see some air bubbles.
Next, start steaming your milk. Any type of milk will work in this recipe, but know that whole milk will provide the most foam. A handheld frother can create delicious, foamy milk in seconds but even if you don’t have one of those, there are plenty of ways to steam your milk with common tools in your kitchen! The first way to steam milk at home is to warm it up on your stovetop (don't boil!), using a whisk to whip the milk rapidly. The milk should fluff up quickly. A second way to create frothy milk is to use a French press. Simply heat up your milk, pour it into your French press, and push and pull the plunger until the milk expands.
Now that you have perfectly blended matcha and warm, frothy milk, add a splash of vanilla extract and sweeten to taste using honey, maple syrup, or vanilla syrup to your matcha. Pour in your steamed milk, making sure to get some foam in each cup.
Sprinkle matcha powder on top for garnish and enjoy!
