How to make that perfect matcha latte?

We searched the internet but found no comprehensive resource dedicated to perfecting the matcha latte. So we made one ourselves. We update this page when we find worthy recipes or frequently asked questions about making matcha lattes at home.

Frequently asked questions

On its own, matcha has antioxidants, L-theanine and caffine. Whether a matcha latte is good for you would depend on what else you put in. We have seen recipes calling for 2 or more tbsp of syrup. 

All that sweetener will surely cancel out any of the health benefits of matcha. In short, it depends on what other ingredients you use in your matcha lattes.

We don’t recommend using higher end matchas for latte because it is a little “wasteful”. High quality matcha is very rare and difficult to produce, and should be reserved for matcha teas. 

We believe any matcha in the middle-high range will do nicely. For that, we recommend our Superior Ceremonial Blend or Organic Ceremonial Blend. They go for between 55-65 cents per gram – a good compromise between price and taste! They’re hardly bitter so you don’t need to put much sweetener (if at all).

Get a handheld, battery operator milk frother. These are really affordable from IKEA. They are also readily available on Amazon.

We notice that this issue tends to occur for iced matcha lattes more than hot matcha lattes. For iced matcha lattes, consider pouring the latte through a strainer before serving.

I have to say I am really impressed by this organic matcha! I’ve tried many different matchas, but this matcha has taken me to places I’ve never been to, and didn’t know you could even go with matcha.

The dark boldness of this matcha will catch you right away and linger with you for a while. You’ll be in for a treat with this matcha, especially if you make a thick style matcha (koicha) or a more thin style (usucha). I often make the thin style with this matcha and consistently I get a rich creaminess that you get when you drink a matcha latte, also a deep umami flavor with notes of cacao. This matcha changed my life, because it made me realize that matchas are like fine wines they, have their own unique personalities.

There aren’t words to express how smooth this matcha is. It has a delicate and sweet undertone. The vegetal flavor is still relatively present but not overwhelming at all! The powder is such a vibrant green! This is something I look for in my matcha to determine the class and how to treat it. So I knew when I saw how leaf-green it was that it was going to be a real treat! Every sip I took triggered a memory of when I visited a teahouse for the first time in Tokyo, Japan during spring. Just amazing! I will be getting this matcha again for sure! This is the highest quality matcha I have tasted since I’d left Japan! So glad this exists!!

I’ve had a couple brands of matcha by now. My initial problem with matcha was that it was way too bitter (Jadeleaf). Then I started buying higher grades and it was no longer bitter, but when I made a matcha latte out of them the taste wouldn’t not prevail, it wouldn’t have enough body and adding more would only result in a bite of bitter and a drain on my wallet (Specifically, I used MatchaSense, Encha, and Kenko, but it is possible I didn’t prepare them correctly). With this brand, the flavor is not overpowered by the milk and the notes of baby spinach are clear and without bitterness. I look forward to trying their seasonal blends.

This has become an important part of my morning. A magic fine green tea powder Naoki gives me all the energy I need to start my day. It’s so refreshing hot or cold so I sometimes switch to the cold version and take it with me to work. Just add (less than) a teaspoon into my 16oz tumblr, add some water and ice and shake! My coworkers tried and liked it so we now have our own jar at the desk. The other day we tried to be creative and we made very delicious matcha latte at work and loved it so much.

I definitely buy it again – highly recommend you to do the same

I had my share of matcha in Japan and outside Japan, and first tried it in 2010 long before it went viral. For some reason, this one stood out and I tried it neat with nearly 3g of matcha powder and 4 oz of water. It foams well and I really enjoyed the flavor. There’s a nice creaminess at the start and it ends on a clean mellow note like any good matcha should. Fantastic stuff.
