How to make the perfect matcha latte
The perfect matcha latte is really not as difficult as many people think. With only two ingredients, it’s super simple; the key to creating a delicious matcha latte is to ensure you’ve got really good ingredients.
So when you mix Pure Almond Mylk by Nuts By Nature, with premium matcha powder from a brand like Zen Green Tea - it couldn’t be easier, tastier, and healthier!
First things first- what is matcha?
Matcha is a type of green tea but the special difference is in the processing of the tea leaves. Matcha is made by grinding the leaves into a fine powder, which retains the leaf’s nutrients and gives that incredible green colour!
So by drinking matcha, you are consuming the whole tea leaf - and all the goodness that is in those leaves. This is why it’s known for its range of health benefits, including boosting energy levels, weight loss, and protecting against disease.
Make sure you use a high quality matcha powder so you retain all the maximum health benefits; that’s why we recommend mixing with matcha from Zen Green Tea. They source their premium matcha from sustainable farms in Japan, so it’s packed with all the health benefits, delicious taste, and vibrant green colour.
It is also really important to make your latte with good quality milk so you don’t lose that goodness!
Now for the mylk!
Pure Almond Mylk by Nuts By Nature, is a rich almond base that makes fresh almond mylk on your terms. They have used only healthy ingredients so every mouthful is brimming with great taste and none of the additives or preservatives found in Ultra Heat Treated (UHT) milks!
Nuts By Nature Mylk have used an artisan grinding process to create this amazing blend, and their "no-nasties" policy means that you get only the purest mylk with all its nutritional goodness intact. All this makes Pure Almond Mylk extra special.
When you blend these two beautifully created products together, what you end up with is a truly magical drink that will leave you feeling happy and uplifted.
