How to Make a Matcha Latte?
This matcha latte recipe is super easy. It’s just three ingredients (and a tiny bit of sweetener, if you want), and you don’t need any fancy barista skills or equipment.

Easy step-by-step directions and tips from a tea sommelier on how to make a layered matcha drink in less than 5 minutes! Perfectly sweet and refreshing, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to make at home.

  • Matcha
    There’s a big range when it comes to matcha. The brighter the matcha, the better the quality. 
  • Milk
    Any kind of milk can be used. I usually use oat milk.
  • Cold water
    Use filtered water if possible since good quality water makes tea taste better.
  • Honey
    Sweetener is the secret to making the drink layered so honey, or white sugar, is needed.


  1. Combine milk and honey in a cocktail shaker. Shake.
    Make sure to add milk in first.
  2. Pour sweetened milk into a cup then add ice.
  3. Rinse the cocktail shaker. Combine water and matcha in the cocktail shaker. Shake.
    Add water first, then matcha, otherwise the matcha can easily clump. Any wide-mouth container will work if you don’t have a cocktail shaker, including a jar with a tight lid.
  4. Slowly pour matcha into the glass with milk and ice.
    Pour matcha on top of the ice, not directly into the milk to get a cleaner layered look. Stir before drinking.

Tea Sommelier’s Tip: The sugar content keeps the layers separated. The liquid that has the most sugar will sink to the bottom. Honey is added to the milk and poured into the cup first. The matcha doesn’t have any sugar in it so it’ll sit on top of the sweetened milk.
