This is more of a Sunday morning than a Saturday night kind of drink.
I “discovered” this drink at my local Louisa Coffee shop when I ordered a “matcha latte” thinking it would be a hot drink made with matcha and milk. I was surprised to taste that it was made with coffee and matcha, and even more surprised that I loved it.
Now I order matcha coffees at Louisa all the time. The matcha coffee is cheaper and they say it doesn’t have any milk in it.
It seems like there must be some milk in there because it tastes and looks creamy, but maybe it’s just the cheap milk powder.
I am not sure exactly how they make it, but I’m in love. And I enjoy it cold as much as I enjoy it hot, which is unusual for me.
I don’t have a matcha coffee recipe. I am 99% sure that if you add some matcha tea powder to your coffee at home, and add cream or sugar to taste, you’ll be good to go. Actually, J does that at home all the time so he can have his coffee and still enjoy the health benefits of drinking matcha. I can’t drink matcha on an empty stomach without getting nauseous, so I usually have my matcha coffee to go between classes.
