  1. 1. Prepare the Matcha Paste:
    In a small bowl, sift the matcha green tea powder to remove any lumps.
    Add the hot water to the bowl with the sifted matcha powder.
    Use a bamboo whisk or a small whisk to vigorously whisk the matcha and hot water until it forms a smooth paste. Ensure there are no clumps.

    2. Heat the Milk:
    In a separate saucepan or using a milk frother, heat the milk to your desired temperature. Be careful not to boil it; aim for around 70-80°C (160-175°F).

    3. Combine Matcha and Milk:
    Pour the matcha paste into a cup.
    Gradually add the hot milk to the cup, whisking or stirring continuously to combine the matcha paste and milk thoroughly.

    4. Sweeten to Taste:
    Add honey or your preferred sweetener to the matcha latte and stir until it’s well incorporated. Adjust the sweetness to your liking.

    5. Optional Garnish:
    If desired, top your matcha latte with a dollop of whipped cream.
    Dust a little matcha powder over the whipped cream for an elegant touch.

    6. Serve and Enjoy:
    Your foolproof matcha latte is ready to be enjoyed. Sip and savor the delightful combination of earthy matcha and creamy milk.

    Pro Tip
    • Using a fine-mesh strainer to sift the matcha powder can help eliminate clumps.
    • Adjust the amount of matcha powder and sweetener to suit your taste preferences. Some like it stronger, while others prefer it milder and sweeter.
    • For a frothier latte, you can use a milk frothier or a handheld frothier to froth the milk before adding it to the matcha paste.
