The Perfect Homemade Matcha Green Tea Recipe

Matcha green tea is not only delicious but also packed with antioxidants and nutrients. Making your own matcha tea at home is easy and allows you to customize it to your taste. Here’s a simple recipe to get you started:


  • 1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
  • 2 ounces hot water (not boiling, about 175°F or 80°C)
  • 6 ounces steamed milk (you can use any kind of milk you prefer)
  • Honey or sweetener to taste (optional)


  1. Prepare the Matcha: Sift the matcha green tea powder into a cup or bowl to remove any lumps.
  2. Heat the Water: Heat water to about 175°F (80°C). Boiling water can make the matcha taste bitter.
  3. Make the Matcha Paste: Add a small amount of hot water to the matcha powder and whisk with a bamboo whisk or a small kitchen whisk to make a smooth paste.
  4. Whisk the Matcha: Gradually add the rest of the hot water and whisk until the matcha is fully dissolved and frothy.
  5. Steam the Milk: Steam the milk and add it to the matcha tea. You can use a milk frother for extra frothiness.
  6. Sweeten (Optional): Sweeten with honey or your preferred sweetener if desired.
  7. Enjoy: Pour your homemade matcha green tea into a cup and savor every sip of this delightful and nutritious beverage.

Making matcha green tea at home allows you to enjoy its unique flavor and health benefits while also being a fun and rewarding experience. Experiment with different milk types and sweeteners to find your perfect matcha recipe. Cheers to good health and great taste!
