Today I want to share the recipe of my favorite beverage: matcha tea latte.
Initially I didn’t want to dedicate a whole post to this topic because the recipe itself is the most simple and basic of this world, but then I thought I’d share a couple of tricks that make this drink my perfect start of the day.
The matcha tea fine powder is a high-quality green tea. Wikipedia Explains us that ‘the health benefits of matcha green tea may be attributed to the repute the whole tea leaf is ingested, as opposed to just the steeped water in the case of’ bagged ‘green teas. This means clustering that it delivers a much higher potency of catechins, chlorophyll, and antioxidants. By weight, matcha contains several dozen times more antioxidants than blueberries, pomegranates, orange juice, spinach or dark chocolate. ”
So drinking matcha tea is an healthy and yummy habit .
My first suggestion for the preparation of matcha tea latte is to use almond milk .
After trying all kinds of vegetable milk I have discovered that almond milk is what allows a large amount of foam due to its creamy consistency.
The second fundamental suggestion is to use a little milk mixer ( I use the IKEA one). This step is necessary because the matcha powder is difficult to dissolve in milk and tends to create lumps when mixed with a simple spoon.
In the traditional japanese ritual you would need a wood matcha whisk to prepare the matcha tea, which you can also buy but it’s usually expensive and requires a longer process.
Here therefore the finished product ready in 2 minutes. Every morning I drink this tea along with a bowl of fruit and this combo gives me a lot of healthy energy. Try it!
