Traditional matcha, green tea powder, preparation is a true art form. The unique flavour of matcha can range from earthy, sweet, or bitter. A premium grade of matcha is preferable for this drink over culinary or cooking grade matcha. Pro tip: scale up the recipe to make a large batch of the powdered mix for quick lattes on-demand!

Directions

  1. To a jar, add the matcha powder and sugars, and mix to combine***.
  2. To a saucepan, add the oat milk and coconut milk to heat up. Whisk throughout, and remove from the heat when hot but not yet boiling.
  3. To make one latte, add 1 Tbsp of the powdered mix and 2 Tbsp (30 mL) of hot water to a cup. Avoid using boiling water straight out of the kettle as this can make the matcha taste more bitter. Whisk until no lumps remain.
  4. Divide the hot milk between your cups and top with foamed milk, if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

  • * A premium grade of matcha is preferable for this drink over culinary or cooking grade matcha.

I thought that I didn't enjoy matcha, but this changed my mind, I love the color and the swerling gradient.

Such a huge compliment, Chloe - thank you 💚

I am a big fan of your other matcha recipes on the PUL blog, in fact they were my first introduction to matcha, and combining it with the flavour of coconut was how I learned to love it. ❤ This latte was so creamy and delicious! It was super comforting and I loved it.

Oh, Charlotte, this means so much! We're so happy it was enjoyed 🙂

I really enjoy your blog and recipes. This green tea is really soothing. My husband is meat and potatoes, he even rated it as "5".

Such as lovely compliment, Lily, and so glad it was enjoyed!

Hi there!

I want to give this as a gift, but without adding in the matcha. I want to purchase a ceremonial matcha without adding it into the jar that way they can also enjoy a traditional matcha. How much of the vanilla sugar/coconut sugar per serving?

PUL Team - Dec. 14, 2021, 5:15 a.m.

Hi Lupe, thanks for the question! We suggested premium grade as it's preferred over cooking grade matcha, but ceremonial matcha tends to be of higher quality in our experience, making it an even better choice. In fact, we also used ceremonial matcha when we made ours. So the same portions in the recipe would work well: 4 tsp vanilla sugar, 2 tsp matcha powder, and 1 tsp coconut sugar per serving. If desired, giving the recipe a test before gifting it could help confirm how it tastes. We hope the recipe is enjoyed 😃

Thanks for the recipe! What brand do you recommend for the matcha?

PUL Team - Dec. 11, 2021, 10:35 p.m.

Hey Kayla, great question! It's really a personal choice, as some prefer certain brands to others. I got our ceremonial grade matcha by recommendation from a friend from "Matcha Oishii". In general, though, opting for a premium grade or ceremonial grade matcha works best for drinks like this, compared to cooking grade matcha. I hope this helps for now!
