This was part of a secret santa tea gift from inkay, which was incredible, by the way!
This was my first matcha latte ever, so preparation was a little iffy. I’ve never even had a professional one, so I kind of made it up. I started by making a paste with 170 degree water, then I used my espresso machine to make milk foam. I just kind of made up how much milk to add and stirred.
I wasn’t really feeling it plain, and my chat had recommended adding some vanilla, so that’s what I did. The result was what I would imagine green bean ice cream to taste like. It was weird at first, but it grew on me. It definitely has a different flavor than my usual matcha.
Less sweet, a little more bitter, and more vegetal, yet still somehow smooth. Very nice! Thanks inkay!
