Green Tea Matcha Latte

Green Tea Matcha Latte

We can thank Japan for this luscious drink. Matcha green tea has been used traditionally in Japanese tea ceremonies for centuries but has only recently become a standard offering in many U.S. cafes. We’ve put a twist on the traditional with the addition of vanilla and cloves for a top of the mornin' comfort drink!


Matcha contains an amazing concentration of polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants. It is low in caffeine yet those who drink swear by the calm alertness of this ancient herb.

8 oz near boiling water
4 oz hot, but not boiling, almond/cashew milk*

2. Pour in the boiling water and whisk the powder and liquid together vigorously until the matcha has dissolved.
3. Heat your milk and add in the honey.
