Matcha Latte

November 14, 2016

This trendy latte drink, based on matcha tea, is fascinating me for a while. The intense green matcha powder, used in Japanese tea ceremonies, is renowned for numerous health benefits. It’s rich in antioxidants, nutrients and chlorophyll. By adding hot milk, you will make the strong and intense matcha taste much more subtler, and meanwhile you get your daily dose of calcium.

Instructions

  • put 1 tsp matcha powder in a wide bowl
  • add hot water (not boiling, 80° is perfect)
  • use a bamboo whisk to stir it into a green foamy paste
  • pour it in a glass together with hot milk
  • add milk foam for the perfect topping

Enjoy!

Deze hippe latte drank, op basis van matcha thee, fascineert me al een tijdje. Het intense groene matcha poeder, dat wordt gebruikt in de Japanse theeceremonies, is gekend omwille van zijn vele gezonde eigenschappen. Het is rijk aan antioxidanten, nutriënten en chlorofyl. Het toevoegen van warme melk, maakt de sterke en intense smaak van de matcha veel subtieler, en zorgt meteen ook voor je dagelijkse dosis calcium.

Bereiding

  • doe een theelepel matcha poeder in kom
  • voeg heet water toe (niet kokend, 80° is perfect)
  • roer het geheel met een bamboo-garde tot een groene schuimende vloeistof 
  • giet het in een glas, samen met warme melk
  • voeg melkschuim toe voor de perfecte topping

Geniet ervan!

The best way to start the day, is a glass of fresh-pressed juice. But sometimes, I juist don’t find the time to add it to my morning rituals. Then I’m happy to find a bottle of Appelaere in my fridge. This dutch brand is producing natural juices from 100% fruit. Healthy and tasty, without any additives. Besides apple juice, you can choose for pear juice (Perelaere) and orange juice (Sinaasappelaere).
