Tea Latte Recipes

One of my guilty pleasures was to swing by Starbucks in the afternoon to get their Green Tea Latte (with just one pump of syrup!) before picking up my kids. Usually by the afternoon, I’ve already had a few cups of coffee/tea/chai and I need something little sweet for my afternoon pick-me-up and green tea latte is just perfect.
However, recently I came to realize that I can actually buy 1-2 packages of good quality matcha green tea powder with the same cost as 2 cups of Green Tea Latte at Starbucks. And with one package of matcha green tea powder, I can make many cups of my favorite latte.
The embarrassing part was that I have actually stocked up my pantry with many matcha green tea powder packages already! Unlike espresso, we don’t need any special machine to make this latte; all you need is milk and matcha green tea powder.
I love the slightly bitter and sweet taste of matcha, with a bit of sugar and blending in milk, it’s just perfect. These few days have been really cold in the bay area so it tastes extra good as I take slow sips of the warm latte from the cup. You can easily make the iced version of the drink by using cold milk and adding ice for hot summer days.
To make nice foamy froth, I now use ZENPRO Milk Frother and I LOVE IT! I used to use this $2 IKEA frother which works great too. But if you make Green Tea Latte often like I do, the ZENPRO milk frother is definitely nice to have!
If you are interested in this product, ZENPRO offers JOC readers 15% off discount code ZENPRO15 for all ZENPRO products! It’s a great chance!
However, if you don’t care much about the froth on top of the latte, and it still tastes wonderful without it.
