Tips

  • You can enjoy both versions of the matcha latte – hot and cold! For a colder version, chill and throw in ice cubes. For a hot version, just use hot milk and water for the mixing and blending processes.
  • Matcha is extremely sensitive to light and heat. Always store it in foil or in a dark and airtight container. For those of you who do not drink it daily, you can also opt for storing matcha in the fridge or freezer.
  • If you have a milk frother at home, feel free to use it for a lighter and creamier matcha latte.
  • For a vegan version, you can also use coconut milk or almond milk, depending upon your taste and preference.
