Special Equipment:


  1. Start by heating a small bowl with hot water. Dry thoroughly. Any remaining water will cause matcha powder to stick.
  2. Sift matcha powder into dried bowl. Add the tablespoon of water.
  3. Moving the whisk towards and away from you, gently whisk the matcha until frothy, about 1 minute. Pour into serving cup. Add sweetener at this time, if using.
  4. Heat the milk on the stove in a small pan until just below boiling. Whisk vigorously until frothy, or use a milk frother.
  5. Gently pour hot milk into prepared matcha and enjoy!
  6. Optional: Make easy latte art by dusting matcha powder over latte using a latte art stencil.
