Vanilla Matcha Latte
Matcha is a powdered green tea that is made by milling of a tea plant, the Camellia Sinensis. It is traditionally used in Japanese tea ceremonies. It is full of antioxidants and has a very mild flavor. There are a few grades of matcha. For beverages I prefer using the ceremonial grade which is the highest quality and the most expensive. The good quality matcha should have a bright green color as opposed to dull yellowish color and usually comes in tins. It's best to store the matcha in a tin container in a dark place as it is very sensitive to light and might degrade quickly if not stored proplerly.
1 Cup plant milk (Oatly Barista edition is my favorite for this recipe)
1/2 tsp Ceremonial Grade matcha powder
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 date (optional)
2 tsp water
