How to Make Matcha Tea - Fun Recipe

Matcha is a green powder, traditionally made from ground Japanese green tea leaves. As matcha comes in a powder form it needs to be whisked with water, or milk, in order to drink it. Preparing your own matcha is a very straight forward task and is a nice therapeutic 5 mins just to yourself! Our quick and easy steps on how to make matcha tea will help you make the perfect matcha every day.

Recognised as a healthy food, Matcha Tea also contains extremely high levels of antioxidants. It is associated with providing a number of wonderful health benefits. One serve of matcha tea is said to be 10 x more potent than a regular cup of green tea!

Follow our easy steps on how to prepare matcha tea below.

Matcha Tea Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 tsp matcha powder
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup (or stevia to taste // more or less to preference + depending on sweetness of macadamia and coconut milk)
  • 1 Tbsp hot water
  • 3/4 cup light coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup macadamia nut milk

Matcha Tea Instructions

  1. Add matcha powder to your serving mug along with sweetener of choice and hot water.
  2. Whisk with a bamboo whisk or a metal whisk until completely dissolved. If you don’t have a bamboo whisk, you can use a spoon or a metal whisk or even blend the latte in a blender. Bamboo whisks are gentle on the matcha and also help it dissolve more completely. So if you like matcha, I recommend investing! Otherwise, use what you have. Latte can also be made cold over ice. Simply add all ingredients plus a handful of ice to a jar, cover, and shake vigorously to combine.
  3. Once the matcha is completely dissolved, heat* your coconut and macadamia milk (or other dairy-free milks). I added mine to a frothing pitcher and steamed on our espresso machine, but you could also heat in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot and steamy. To get more froth, you can whisk vigorously or use a handheld frother.
  4. Pour dairy-free milk into your mug – latte art optional. Taste and add more sweetener if needed. I found that, when I used the macadamia nut milk, I only needed a bit of maple syrup or stevia to sweeten.

The instructions are very similar to making matcha the easy way shown above. Enjoy Matcha Tea immediately.
