Recreate a starbucks matcha latte at home

If you enjoy Starbucks Matcha lattes, you're probably wondering how you can create this experience at home. With just a few ingredients and simple tools you can make your own home version that is just as delicious and healthier to boot!

What is Matcha?

Matcha is just a finely ground form of tea. While it originally was from Japan, and focused on green tea - other types of tea can also be ground up into matcha form. Matcha needs to be ground slowly to prevent too much heat, and retaining all the health benefits of the tea.

What's in a Starbucks matcha latte anyway?

The ingredients are quite simple - sugar & ground japanese green tea. They whip it up with steamed milk and add the optional flavor syrups and toppings. It's deceptively easy - so if you have just a few limited ingredients at home, you can make your own clone drink in no time!

Step 1 : Choose some Matcha

For a starbucks matcha latte, there is no need to spend a lot of money on very expensive connoisseur grade matcha. A standard culinary grade is all you need for a nice frothy, foamy drink.

Flavored or Non-flavored matcha?

While Starbuck matcha lattes syrup shots to add vanilla or peppermint flavors, you don't need a personal collection of syrups to accomplish the same thing. Another method is to get FLAVORED MATCHA. This is simply matcha infused during processing with natural extracts.

Step 2: Whisk the Matcha

Next you'll need to dissolve the matcha, either using a bowl and whisk, or using an electric frother. You can also vigorously shake it in a mason jar or other sealed container. Use a 3 gram packet in about 6-8 ounces of hot water. Whisk/Froth/Shake until dissolved.

Add your milk and sugar at this point. Because *YOU* control the sugar content you don't need to make it as sweet as Starbucks. Repeat the whisk/froth/shake until you have a nice whipped up foam.
