Matcha Milk Tea Recipe

I love the taste of matcha so much that I have to have it every morning. It has great health benefits and is just one of the habits or rituals that my body craves every day. But as much as I am a tea drinker, I’m not really a milk drinker and don’t usually add milk to my teas. That’s where I came up with the idea for this Matcha Milk Tea recipe.

What is Matcha Milk Tea?

Matcha milk tea is a popular drink made from matcha powder and milk. It’s become increasingly popular in recent years as more people discover its delicious, creamy taste and its health benefits.

Green tea leaves are an important ingredient in making matcha and this matcha is made from ground green tea leaves packed with antioxidants. Those antioxidants are great for your immune system and can even help you lose weight! It also has a high caffeine content, so if you want to avoid coffee but still want that caffeine boost, this is the drink for you!

The key to making the perfect cup of matcha milk tea is finding a balance between the amount of matcha powder and the amount of water. Too much water will dilute your brew; too much powder will make it taste bitter or overpowering. The best way to find that perfect balance is to try it out for yourself. Start by adding about one teaspoon of matcha powder to a cup of hot water and stirring until it’s dissolved. Then add more if needed until your milk tea has the perfect color and consistency.

Whole Milk

Whole milk is a great ingredient for matcha milk tea because it adds a rich flavor and texture to your drink. The fat content in whole milk helps create a creamy texture, which makes your matcha experience more satisfying. Whole milk also lends itself well to the flavor of matcha, as the bitterness of the green tea is balanced out by the sweetness and creaminess of whole milk.

Matcha Powder

Matcha powder is a type of green tea with a rich, bright color. It’s commonly used in making matcha milk tea because it has a strong flavor that stands up well to milk. The powder is also very high in antioxidants and has been shown to have many health benefits.

Sugar (or more, if you like sweeter drinks)

The use of sugar in making this tea is to sweeten the tea. The sweetness of the matcha milk tea makes it taste better and more delicious.

Instruction

  1. Brew a cup of water (about 6 oz.)
  2. Add 1 tsp of matcha powder and whisk vigorously until the powder has dissolved completely.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp of sugar or honey (or your favorite sweetener) and whisk until combined.
  4. Pour in 1/2 cup of milk into the matcha mixture and whisk until combined.
  5. Heat up with a microwave or stovetop until warm throughout (do not boil!).

Tips

The world of matcha milk tea is a vast and exciting one. But the truth is, it can get old pretty fast if you’re not careful. Here are a few tips to help you make your next cup of matcha milk tea an unforgettable experience.

  • Start with the best matcha powder and milk:

You’ll want to use the best quality ingredients possible to make your matcha milk tea as delicious as possible. This means looking for high-quality matcha powder and milk, whether it’s whole or skimmed milk depending on your preference.

  • Use a whisk:

A good whisk will help you whip up a perfectly frothy cup of matcha milk tea that tastes just like what you’d get at your favorite coffee shop! And don’t forget to put the whisk away after use—you don’t want it getting dirty or moldy inside your drawer!

  • Don’t over-infuse:

Matcha powder is delicate, so don’t over-infuse with it! Only use two teaspoons per cup of water (and try not to let it steep any longer than 30 seconds).

Storage

When you’re ready to put your matcha milk tea in the fridge, we recommend storing it in an airtight container. This will help keep out any unwanted odors or flavors that might ruin your delicious drink.

But what if you have leftovers? Here’s what to do if you’re not going to drink all of your matcha milk tea right away:

  • Pour out the amount that you want to save into a container and place it in the fridge.
  • Make sure that the container is sealed tightly so no odors can get in.
  • You can keep this for up to 3 days before it starts to lose its freshness and taste.

Reheating

Matcha milk tea is delicious, but it’s also best when it’s fresh. If you’ve got leftovers that have gone cold, don’t worry! There are a few ways to reheat your tea to taste just as good as it did when you first made it.

  1. The Microwave Method: This method involves heating the tea in a microwave-safe mug or bowl for 1-2 minutes. You can also add a splash of water to help the tea retain its flavor and color.
  2. The Stovetop Method: This method is similar to the microwave method; however, instead of using a microwave, you’ll heat your mug or bowl on the stovetop over low heat until warm (about 2 minutes). Make sure not to let your matcha milk tea boil—it will lose its color and become bitter!

Health Benefits

  • Matcha milk tea is a delicious way to get your daily dose of antioxidants and protein, and it’s also great for your skin!
  • Matcha is made from ground green tea leaves that are finely milled into a fine powder. It’s packed with antioxidants, which means it can help fight free radicals that cause premature aging and other health problems.
  • The amino acids in matcha milk tea also help you feel full and satisfied longer than other drinks like coffee or soda.
  • Another benefit of drinking matcha milk tea is that it has less caffeine than other kinds of tea, so it won’t keep you awake at night or make you jittery during the day.

FAQ

What does matcha milk tea taste like?

Matcha milk tea tastes like the combination of a milkshake and green tea. It is creamy and sweet, with a hint of bitterness from the matcha powder.

Is matcha milk tea healthy?

It depends. Matcha, which is a type of powdered green tea that’s used to make a drink, is generally considered to be very good for you: It’s full of antioxidants and boosts your metabolism. But the milk and sugar that are often added to matcha milk tea can make it less healthy than plain matcha.
If you’re going to have a cup of matcha milk tea, try to avoid adding any extra sugar or cream. One teaspoon per serving is a good guideline—but there’s no way to know how much sugar or cream has been added by the cafe or restaurant where you are getting your drink.
If you’re looking for a healthier option, try making your own at home by combining equal parts hot water and milk with one teaspoon of matcha powder in a blender until frothy, then adding ice cubes and stirring again until chilled through!

Conclusion

Matcha is a great choice! It’s refreshing, creamy, and doesn’t have that heavy-milk-induced crash like regular milk tea. However, because matcha powder has a strong taste, it’d be best to pair it with a light-flavored drink. Matcha gives everything a bit of a green tint, but that’s up for you to decide. When it comes to this drink, however, remember to enjoy it in moderation—after all, there is caffeine here, so it’s not the healthiest thing to consume (at least not unless you balance out the calories with a light snack).
