A powder that consists of finely ground green tea leaves, matcha has a high concentration of chlorophyll and contains ten times as many antioxidants as regular green tea. Matcha is blended with a liquid and then ingested; it’s not steeped the way most teas are.
For a green tea latte, Holliday suggests mixing 1 teaspoon of matcha to 1/3 cup of warm-hot, but not boiling, water, then whisk them in a small bowl until the top slightly foams. Add 8oz of warm-hot milk, soy milk or almond milk. If you like things a bit sweeter then Kiley suggests adding a teaspoon of raw honey. You’ll get a drink that, she says, tastes like "warm green tea ice cream."
