Kitchen equipment needed

Preparing the green tea latte — 5 minutes
POUR 1.5 cups of (soy/ rice/ almond/ cow) milk into a small saucepan or pot. BRING to a bare simmer over medium-high heat. When the milk is heated, pour about 0.5 cup into a heat-proof milk frother. FROTH the milk until a thick foam forms. MIX about 2 tablespoons of green matcha with the simmering milk in the small saucepan. GIVE it a good stir until an equal green color is visible.
Making the matcha latte — 5 minutes
DIVIDE the green milk over 2 glasses, then pour in foam on top. SWEETEN with agave syrup, as much as you like. For presentation, top it off with a little bit of matcha powder (as seen in the picture).
Where to buy matcha?
You can usually purchase matcha green tea powder at Japanese markets, chinese supermarkets or reform shops. This green tea matcha latte has a savory, but nutty flavor and aroma. Add some lemon for that extra freshness.
