3/4 – 1 tsp matcha (here’s one of my favorite)
3 tbs hot water
6 oz milk or dairy alternative
2 teaspoons sugar/maple syrup – or – 2 oz sweetened chai concentrate
Ice, if needed
Ground cinnamon, optional
- To a small bowl or mug, add the matcha, hot water, and honey if you’re using it, and use an electric whisk or milk frother to blend the matcha until nicely blended and frothy. You want to blend well to avoid any clumps in the matcha since they’re extremely bitter.
- Fill a glass with ice, add the blended matcha followed by the milk of your choice. Add the chai concentrate at this point if you’re using it, and stir.
- Sprinkle with some ground cinnamon if desired
What does matcha taste like?
Matcha is a very earthy tasting green tea with a very smooth taste.
What frother do you use?
I use an electric bamboo whisk. You can find it here.
What’s chai concentrate and where can I get it?
Chai concentrate is a concentrated liquid with all the amazing flavors of masala chai like cinnamon and cardamom. You can easily find it online, or at specialty grocery stores. I love using this one.
