Have You Ever Tasted Matcha Latte with Soy Milk or Almond Milk?

Matcha Latte

Do you like coffee latte?

How about matcha latte?

Matcha is green tea (Camellia Sinensis) leaves powder. Matcha is from Japanese word that means ground tea because the leaves of green tea have been done by grinding in the stones or granites to produce very fine powdered green tea leaves.

So what's fascinated me about matcha?

The ways how to produce matcha. I just knew that before harvesting, all tea trees have to be covered to block the direct sunlight.

After the tea leaves grow rapidly, in the Spring, about three week before harvest, men in the tea fields prepare the poles and reed woven mats or dried rice stalk woven to shade the tea fields. 

Blocking the sunlight is to block the process of photosynthesis.


Matcha Latte with soy milk.

These fresh green tea leaves must be immediately steamed for about 20 seconds to prevent oxidation so that the green color remains bright, the aroma and nutrients are maintained, then the leaves ready for the next step, drying process.

After drying, the next process is to select and remove fine branches or parts which are not needed, then the leaves are made into powder by using millstone or granite, so that they become very fine powder. 

We do not drink tea leaves, do we? After the tea leaves soaked in water, we get rid off the tea leaves. 

But matcha green tea is in powdered form, so that when we drink matcha means we drink the whole tea leaves. Nothing to discard.

My experience for the first time drink matcha tea seemed like taking herbal medicine. 

Since the some of coffee shops serve matcha in their menu, sometimes I like to have matcha latte, either with soy milk or almod milk.

  3. I have not tried it yet. You've convinced me. I'm going to look for it. I eat a lot of Japanese green tea. Daily. It was recommended to me by a neurologist. Its taste, in addition, I feel good.

    Hug, Evi. And thank you very much for the recommendation.

  26. I love green tea but I only drank it in tea form, I have never tried matcha. I'd love to. I don't like soy milk as much as I do almond milk so I would probably opt to drink it with almond milk. I think it would be amazing with almond milk. Thanks for your recommendation.

  28. ¡Hola, Evi Erlinda!

    Nos dejas una bonita e interesante entrada, aquí en España también se usa mucho el té verde u otras variedades de té, se tome en infusión y también con leche. Ese plato que nos presentas, aquí le llamamos crema o, puré, lo hacemos con verduras variada.

    Un placer pasa por tu espacio.

    Te dejo mi gratitud y estima.

    A kiss y se feliz.
