Matcha Latte

Homemade, February 2011 in Vienna, Austria

I was in Japan last year and brought this small can of matcha from Uji, the ancient city that has been famous for green tea cultivation since centuries, after attending a tea ceremony.

Here’s an animation video on how to prepare matcha:

*This matcha latte is with soy milk and muscovado sugar.



  1. Picture makes it look very yummy. I love green tea. I don’t have any from Japan. I’ll have to see if I can get some. Thanks for posting!

  2. I’m not sure what everyone is talking about, but I thought I’d just throw in my two cents anyway. I’m trying to fix my password. Ever since I tried to log in too many times it has challenged me to answer all kinds of questions to which I know the answer, but, unfortunately, the login server does not know, so it keeps getting stuck on the correct answer. Now, before I can fix that, I have to fix the login server’s bad answers, then go back to the correct answer. It’s very hard when that machine is dumb and doesn’t know the correct answers, but I do know the answers, being the human being it is trying to identify. I’ll get it fixed sooner or later; I just wish the server would obey me and not the stupid program that was put into it!!!

  3. Ok so maybe it is true that bigger pics and less content equals Freshly Pressed. Congrats on making the cut.

  4. This past year I’ve really gotten into green tea and drink it at LEAST once a day. I’m not familiar with this ‘matcha’ but I’m going to look into it! Thanks for the post and congrats on being Freshly Pressed!

  5. Matcha is one of my very favorite things in the world. I worked at a coffee shop in Sun Valley, Idaho, USA for a few years and was introduced to it there. You made it beautifully!

  6. I am super excited to have stumbled upon this entry!
    I have recently become obsessed with match, not only does it taste great in a latte but it is so good for you.
    I have been looking for new, more efficient ways to make my matcha soy lattes but I can’t seem to ever whisk it enough.
    Thanks for the vid!

  7. Your cuppa looked so divine that I got up and microwaved a cup of water to make myself a green teabag tea which I am sipping on while writing this. Twinings teabags are very good for someone like me who does not like to stay in the kitchen longer than she has to.
