Why you need to switch out the coffee for matcha.
Matcha tea is a kind of green tea. It's good for your heart, weight, and other aspects of health due to its antioxidant content. It’s also easy to incorporate into your diet.
Matcha is popular in health stores and coffee shops, available as matcha shots, lattes, teas, and desserts.
Like green tea, Matcha comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. However, it’s grown differently and has a unique nutrient profile.

How to make a matcha tea latte
- Start by sifting your matcha powder. It clumps easily, and the clumps can be difficult to whisk away, so this step will help make your matcha latte smooth, creamy & lump-free.
- Add the matcha to a mug, and pour in hot, recently boiled water over it. Whisk vigorously until the matcha green tea powder is fully dispersed. You want to move your whisk in an up-and-down or side-to-side motion, not the usual circular pattern, in order to get your matcha to foam.
- Pour the warmed coconut milk over the foamy water (almond or oat milk is good too!) and whisk again to froth the milk.
- Taste your latte and decide how much sweetener you want to add, if any. We like mine ours a drop of honey.
