Learn how to make matcha green tea at home! I typically enjoy my matcha tea without sweetener, but matcha brands vary in bitterness. If you're new to making matcha, or if your tea tastes bitter, add a few drops of maple syrup or honey to sweeten it to your liking.

Ingredients

  • ¼ teaspoon matcha
  • 2 ounces hot water, 175°F is ideal
  • 6 ounces additional hot water or steamed milk of choice, almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk, dairy milk, etc.
  • Maple syrup, honey, or other sweetener, optional

Instructions

  • Sift the matcha into a mug or small bowl to get rid of any lumps.
  • Pour in the 2 ounces of the hot water. Using a matcha whisk or small regular whisk, whisk briskly from side to side until the matcha is fully dispersed and there is a foamy layer on top.
  • Add the remaining 6 ounces hot water or steamed milk and whisk again until foamy. Sweeten to taste, if desired.
