If you are using a bamboo whisk, soften the tines by soaking in hot water. A metal whisk also works.
Place one teaspoon matcha green tea powder in a bowl.
Pour hot water over matcha and whisk vigorously until frothy. Using a “W” motion helps.
Heat your milk (I like almond or soy milk. Coconut milk is good, too, but I have found it does not froth up as nicely) to 140°F – 160°F on the stovetop and use a whisk to froth — I like to use an electric milk frother.
Sweeten to taste with maple syrup, honey, or sugar.
