Matcha Latte

Matcha (Green Tea) Latte Recipe

If your milk is already sweetened, skip the maple syrup or honey. Check out more tips at the end of the recipe.


  • 1 level tsp quality matcha (green tea) powder
  • 1 tbsp drinking plain water
  • 150 ml fresh milk (or soy milk, almond milk, oats milk)
  • 3/4 tbsp maple syrup (or honey, stevia, or sugar syrup)  to taste
  • matcha powder for garnishing

Tools needed


  1. Add green tea powder and water to a small bowl. Using a bamboo tea whisk, whisk briskly in a circular motion until a smooth green tea paste is formed.
  2. Combine milk with maple syrup. Heat the milk either in the microwave or stove top until warmed through but not boiling. Insert milk frother into the warmed milk (see tip below) until thickened and foamy.
  3. To serve, add green tea paste into serving glass or cup. Pour milk until almost full. Finish with a spoonful of milk foam and a dusting of matcha powder.

Noob Cook Tips

  1. To prevent splashes, the milk frother must be totally submerged in the milk before you turn it on or off.
  2. The milk must be warmed (not cold) before it can be thickened with the frother.
  3. For ice cold latte, add ice cubes to serving glass.

  1. Funny thing that I was never a fan of latte, but this one looks really beautiful and tasty!

  2. What a coincidence! I just bought my first matcha powder over this weekend. But what’s weird is, I hv never tried any matcha tea before. And I hv no tools for making the tea – no bamboo whisk. Oh no!

    • Oh, so what are you making with the matcha powder? You don’t really need a bamboo whisk if you don’t have one. Just a regular whisk (with hot water) will do too.

  3. Can you believe that I have never had matcha latte? It sure looks pretty easy…as I have matcha I will try to make this…thanks for the recipe Wiffy.
    Have a great week :)

  4. Hi Wiffy! I am based in Singapore, may I know where you got your bamboo whisk from? Thanks!

    • Hello Gem! I bought my whisk from iherb.com a few years back for only US$1! however they have since stopped selling it. Have you tried Daiso? As an alternative to the bamboo whisk, use hot water to and a regular whisk. The milk frother itself can do the trick too!

    • yes, I saw that iherb has stopped selling them :( No luck at Daiso but in the end I got the cheap milk frother and am enjoying it now! Hee Hee!

    • that’s great! just use the milk frother to whisk the matcha paste :)
