Green Tea Latte Recipe

For some people, the morning starts with a hot cup of coffee while other people prefer cappuccino and others latte. Latte is an Italian drink often referred to café latte, especially in westernized countries. Regardless of the name, this drink is made with milk and coffee and can be served hot or cold. To change the flavor of the base ingredients, other ingredients can be added. From this, we have seen the green tea latte recipe becoming a favorite, morning, noon, and night. This combination provides the hot, relaxing latte with the health benefits and slight sweetness of the green tea.

The medicinal benefits of green tea have been well documented. Although enjoyed by the Asian population for centuries, we are now seeing green tea used in a variety of foods such as cookies, cakes, puddings, smoothies, and now, lattes. With any green tea latte recipe, you can add some of your favorite foods to customize it. Just imagine sipping on a hot or cold drink while also fighting disease such as cancer, arthritis, cholesterol, and cardiovascular, which is exactly what you do with a green tea latte recipe.

Green Tea Latte Recipe – One

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon green tea powder (Matcha)
6 ounces warm milk
Honey or brown sugar to taste

Mix two ounces of warm milk with the green tea powder, mixing just enough to create a thick paste. Place the paste in the cup, adding the honey or brown sugar, along with remaining milk. Mix well and enjoy!

Green Tea Latte Recipe – Two

1/2 to 1 teaspoon green tea powder
2 ounces warm water
4 ounces warm milk
3 teaspoons sugar or honey
1/2 to 1 cup ice cubes

Mix the green tea powder with the 2 ounces of warm water, mixing well to dissolve. Transfer this mixture to a blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.

Green Tea Latte Recipe – Three

3/4 to 1 teaspoon green tea powder
3 teaspoons sugar or honey
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup soy or regular 2% milk
1/2 to 1 cup ice

Place the green tea powder in a bowl. Add the warm water and sugar or honey. Blend well until the mixture is thoroughly dissolved. Transfer the green tea mixture into a serving glass and then add the ice cubes. To this, add the milk.

Green Tea Latte Recipe – Four

4 cups cold water
2 Chai tea bags
3 green tea bags
1 cup milk, chilled
4 tablespoons brown sugar or honey

Boil water and then add both Chai and green tea bags. Seep the tea for three to five minutes, removing the bags and discarding. In ad blender, blend the milk so it is frothy. Pour the tea into individual serving cups and then to each, add 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar of honey. To the tea mixture, add frothy milk. If you like, you can sprinkle a little green tea powder or cinnamon on top.

A helpful tip when brewing green tea is to retain the flavor while not losing the health benefits. For this, we recommend you use one tea bag for each cup of water. For the water, start with cold water, bringing it to a boil. As soon as the water reaches the boil point, remove it from the heat source and let is stand for three minutes. Then, add the tea bags and allow them to seep for three to five minutes, or place a tea bag into a serving cup, pouring the boiled water on top. While this might sound elementary, you will enjoy both flavor and health benefits for each green tea latte recipe by following these guidelines.

    Hi there….I’m really keen on the Tchai Spiced Green Tea but I’ve yet to try Matcha. Your Green Tea Latte Recipes look great but I heard that milk negates the antioxidising properties by binding to the polyphenols. Is that true, do you know? (If it tastes good, however, ‘what the heck!’)

    Just want to clarify to people.. DON’T BOIL THE GREEN TEA… Green tea adapts a bile like aftertaste if it is overheated. If you want the best tasting green tea you should heat the water till it reached 112 F, or when steam starts to rise.

    um i wanna ask why u said ‘latte’ is a mix of coffee and milk, but u never mention ‘coffee’ as an ingredient in all your recipes?

    Well, latte is traditionally an espresso drink so I think you can really say there’s no such thing as a green tea latte! The recipe is a substitute for those who want a coffee alternative.
