RECIPE: Matcha Latte

Green tea is supposed to offer protection against COVID-19 (among all the other great things it's supposed to do for you), but I really don't like it!  So, I came up with this recipe to mitigate its flavor, and I can tolerate it this way.

Matcha Latte
Serves 1

  • 1/2 teaspoon matcha
  • 2 T. water, heated to 180F
  • 1/2 t. honey
  • 1-1.5 c. almond mylk heated to 180F (cow, sheep, and goat milk alters the bioavailability of the polyphenols in the tea)

Green tea is best when it's 'brewed' at around 180F so heat your water to that temperature.

Pour the water over the tea and whisk to combine. 

Add milk and honey, stir to combine, and enjoy!

NOTE: I use raw honey and raw mylk, so I do not heat the mylk, I drink this cold, and I add the honey after the mylk so the warm tea doesn't kill the honey.
