What is in a matcha latte?
A matcha latte is a type of latte made with matcha, a finely ground powder made from green tea leaves. We recommend Encha's matcha latte powder; specifically created for matcha lattes. The ingredients in a matcha latte typically include:
Matcha powder: This is the primary ingredient and is made from high-quality green tea leaves that have been ground into a fine powder.
Milk: Any type of milk can be used, including cow's milk, almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk. The milk is usually heated and frothed to create a creamy texture.
Sweetener: Some recipes call for sweetener such as honey, sugar, or maple syrup to balance out the bitterness of the matcha.
The preparation of a matcha latte can vary depending on personal preference and the method used. The result is a creamy and slightly sweetened green tea latte with a vibrant green color.
