Green Tea Latte Recipe

Green Tea Latte RecipeI am a huge fan of Starbucks's Green Tea Lattes. I could drink one everyday. Unfortunately starting around $3 a pop, they are not the most economical thing to drink.

So I've come up with my own green tea latte recipe and it works for either hot or cold drinks. You will need:

  • the milk of your choice
  • simple syrup (2 parts water, 1 part sugar brought to a boil and then cooled completely)
  • matcha powder with sugar
  • ice for a cold drink

I usually make up the simple syrup ahead of time and store it in the fridge. In your favorite tea cup add your preferred amount of simple syrup. I don't usually measure this out, it is more of an eyeball it to your own taste sort of thing. If making an iced green tea latte, then just pour in cold milk. If not, heat it up first.

Then I add the matcha powder on top. Starbucks uses a sweetened matcha powder, but they don't sell it in the stores. I suggest the matcha from Mighty Leaf Tea found below as a substitute.

You can stir everything together with a spoon, but I find having a little milk frother works very nicely to blend it all together. Add ice, if cold, and enjoy.

I know there is a lack of concrete measurements in my green tea latte recipe, but I really think it is one of those things you need to do some trial and error on to find what works best for you.

Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical

Mighty Leaf Green Tea TropicalMighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical is one of my favorite teas that is in a tea bag. My husband and I recently attended a really fundraiser for my daughter's school. The event was held at a really nice local hotel with a very fancy ballroom. After dinner, the servers came around with the dessert course and I asked for a cup of tea. I was very pleased when he returned with a mini tea service with a choice of Mighty Leaf tea pouches.

This tea service contained a mug, teapot full of hot water, a choice of three teas, and a little pot of honey. I went with the Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical. They come individually wrapped in a cello wrap bag, perfect for keeping the tea fresh and throwing in your bag to take with you.

When you can't have loose leaf tea, a tea bag or pouch with full leaf tea is a close second. Mighty Leaf Teas are very full flavored. Order some Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical today and see what you think.
