RECIPE: YUZU MATCHA LATTE

RECIPE: YUZU MATCHA LATTE

 

Our yuzu matcha is the perfect balance of earthy, subtly sweet flavors from organic matcha combined with Japan’s beloved citrus fruit:yuzu (柚子). Yuzu is best described as a cross between a tart lemon, a sweet mandarin orange, and a fragrant grapefruit and lends its unique citrus flavors to this yuzu matcha which can be frothed up to make the perfect Japanese latte. 

Servings: 1 

Ingredients

  • 1 tspYuzu Matcha 
  • ¼ cup hot water 
  • ¾ cups milk 
  • Sweetener (sugar, honey, etc) if desired

Traditional Hot Matcha Latte

  1. Sift 1 tsp of theYuzu Matcha powder through a fine sifter into a wide mug to remove any clumps. 
  2. Add ¼ cup of hot water (just before boiling). We recommend180-190°F.
  3. Stir or whisk into a paste. Traditional bamboo whisk (chasen) works best, but a frother or fork/spoon also works. 
  4. Heat ¾ cups of milk with sweetener (if desired). Do not bring to a boil. We recommend heating to 150°F.
  5. Add the heated milk to the matcha paste in the bowl. To produce foam, use a handheld frother for 30 seconds or whisk with a whisk or fork.

  2. Pour the matcha into a cocktail shaker or cup with a lid with one cup of ice, add ¾ cup of milk along with any desired sweetener. 
  3. Cover the cocktail shaker or cup and shake for a full minute.
  4. Strain and serve over a glass of ice.
