Happy Friday friends!
As an avid drink of matcha lattes, I decided to buy my very own DIY kit earlier on in the year when all my go-to coffee shops were closed due to COVID-19. An Instagram friend posted a picture of her Matcha Gift Set from Alfred Tea House and sparked the idea for me. Coincidentally, we visited Alfred Tea House when we were in Tokyo last year (you can read my Tokyo Travel Guide here) and we thought the cafe was very cute and instagrammable. If you’ve seen people take photos in front of a “I love you so matcha” wall, then you know what I’m talking about! What I didn’t know about Alfred Tea House was that they originated in LA and expanded to Tokyo.
After browsing the Alfred Tea House website, I purchased their Ceremonial Matcha Gift Set and their Bamboo Matcha Whisk (sold separately). I’m not claiming that this was a cheap purchase, but the set was so cute and I also really liked that their ceremonial grade matcha green tea powder is sourced from Japan.
This Ceremonial Matcha Gift Set includes:
- 40g tin of Alfred Tea Room ceremonial-grade matcha (sourced from Japan)
- Pink ceramic bowl
- Electric whisk
- “I love you so matcha” measuring scoop
Matcha Latte – 1 serving
You will need:
- 1-2 teapsoon of ceremonial matcha powder (depends on your preference; I like 2 teaspoons)
- 2 tablespoon of hot water (you just need enough hot water to soak the powder)
- 1 cup of hot milk (I use almond milk or oatmilk)
- A drizzle of honey or maple syrup; depending on what kind of sweetener you prefer
- Using the traditional or electric whisk, blend the matcha powder with hot water until power is dissolved
- For hot matcha lattes, add hot milk (The ratio for 1 cup should be 10% hot water + matcha powder and 90% hot milk)
- For cold matcha lattes, do not heat up the milk and just add ice!
THAT’S IT FROM ME! I HOPE YOU ENJOY MAKING MATCHA LATTES AS MUCH AS I DO 🙂
