I will keep this short and sweet because I know you are just here for a recipe, am I right? So I wont blab on too much bout Matcha, but I will add a few benefits I’ve researched and also what I have personally experienced if you’d like to have a read through.
I mean would it be me if I didn’t add some pretty photos too 🙂 hehe
Matcha is a really lovely drink, warm or iced. Most people I know found out about Matcha via celeb pap photos of them in the streetwear holding a green drink. I was also one of those people inspired by the amount of popularity of this green tea drink. Im not shy to shopping in Asian supermarkets and in the past I bought a matcha powder but made it all wrong and thought it was the most disgusting thing Id ever had and never went near it again until recently. And not that I know that brands and the source makes a huge difference I’ve nailed my own recipe.
Matcha is a type of green tea, but what makes it different from regular brewed tea bags/leaves is that it is the whole green tea leaf ground into a very fine powder. Grown In Uji, Japan, the green tea plants have a scheduled growing and harvest time to optimise colour and flavour. Matcha powders health benefits range from loaded antioxidants to boosting brain function.
One of the main beneficial experience I’ve personally had while consuming Matcha is a stabilised morning appetite, just a nice gradual hunger that makes making healthier meals easier instead of that ravenous hunger where you must eat anything in sight haha
A warm frothy drink, a good book and the sunshine? a Match-ahhhhhh made in heaven!
I did a-lot of research on Matcha, ways to make it, with much trial and error I have found my flow and a great recipe.
I do like to warm and froth my mylk with my coffee machine frother but I also can go on holidays and only use a whisk too, so you can totally make this with no frother.
- Matcha Powder
- Hot water
- Matcha Whisk or electric whisk
- Chlorophyl drops
- Mylk of choice
- Local honey
- Frother/warmer (this can be optional and not a necessity to make matcha drink, its just good for frothing and warming the milk like a barista really)
- Using your favourite mug, fill 1/4 of the cup with hot water.
- Now add 1/4 tsp of matcha powder, 1/2 tsp of honey
- Now whisk the mixture until well combined into the water with a frothy surface
- If you have a mylk frother/warmer use that, if not your can warm your milk over the stove top in a small pot.
- Pour in your milk gently
- before your stir, add 3 drops of liquid chlorophyl
- Finish with a swirl/stir
- Enjoy! and make sure to let me know what you think on my instagram page
