INGREDIENTS + SUPPLIES

You only need 4 simple ingredients to make this delicious latte!

  • Matcha Powder: matcha powder is made from dried green tea leaves that have been ground into a fine powder, originally from Japan. It’s naturally high in antioxidants and has some caffeine, but less than a cup of coffee (and is much less likely to give you jitters, too!) Quality does make a difference when it comes to matcha – make sure you purchase ceremonial grade matcha (preferably from an asian-owned company) for the best flavor.
  • Chamomile Tea: chamomile tea is one of my favorite herbal teas and is known for its floral and sweet honey-like flavor. The tea is made from dried chamomile flowers; I like to buy my tea in bulk (also known as loose leaf), but you could also use a tea bag for this recipe. Chamomile is an incredibly versatile flower and is often used to naturally treat inflammation and menstrual pain.

  • Plant-Based Milk: any creamy non-dairy milk here! I’ve recently been loving cashew milk, but oat milk, coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc will work here
  • Sweetener: I prefer to add a small amount of sweetener to this latte, but you can sweeten according to your own preference! I usually use maple syrup but agave will work as well.

HOW TO MAKE A CHAMOMILE MATCHA LATTE

This matcha chamomile tea latte is quite simple to make; the process can be broken down into 3 simple steps:

  1. Make the Chamomile Tea Concentrate: brew the herbal tea with half the amount of normal liquid for a concentrated flavor (and a less watery latte!).You can do this ahead of time and store in the fridge if you’d like your latte to be extra cold
  2. Make the Matcha: I prefer to use the traditional technique of hand-whisking the matcha with a chasen (bamboo whisk), but I’ve included a blender variation in the recipe note as well.
  3. Combine for the Latte! Add the chamomile tea and matcha to a glass with ice, mix in sweetener, then top it all off with some creamy plant milk. Stir to combine.

Then all that’s left to do is sip on your refreshing beverage and enjoy! 🙂

BONUS TIPS + FAQ:

  • Spice it up: Add 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, ginger, or 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom to give this latte an extra boost of flavor!
  • Make a larger batch: Making the chamomile tea concentrate ahead of time will save you time later on, plus it will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days! I like to make a big batch so I can enjoy these lattes all week long 🙂
  • Make it hot: I prefer to enjoy this latte cold over ice, but you can also enjoy it warm, too! Warm the chamomile tea and milk in a small saucepan over the stove, then pour into mugs, add the matcha, and serve warm.

Iced Chamomile Matcha Latte

This Matcha Chamomile Latte is the perfect summer drink! Sweet and floral chamomile tea pairs perfectly with earthy matcha for a refreshing morning or afternoon treat.

  • Author: Caitlin Shoemaker
  • Prep Time: 5 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 Minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 1
  • Category: Drink
  • Method: Stovetop
  • Cuisine: American
  • Diet: Vegan

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 tablespoon loose leaf chamomile tea (or 1 chamomile tea bag)
  • 1 teaspoon ceremonial grade matcha powder*
  • 12 teaspoons grade A maple syrup or agave (or to taste)
  • 1 cup (240 ml) non-dairy milk

Instructions

  1. Brew the Chamomile “Concentrate”: Bring ½ (120 ml) cup of water to a boil; add the chamomile tea to a teapot or large glass, add the water, cover, and steep for 5 minutes. Place in the fridge to let cool for at least 15 minutes, preferably overnight (Note: this makes enough tea for 2 lattes)
  2. Make the Matcha: Sift 1 teaspoon of matcha powder into a medium bowl. Heat water to 180ºF (82ºC) in an electric kettle or in a small saucepan on the stovetop. Add a small amount of water and whisk vigorously with a bamboo whisk (chasen) until dissolved. Then, add in an additional 1/4 cup (60 ml) of water to the bowl and whisk again, in a W motion, until the matcha is frothy.
  3. Combine: add around ~ 1 cup of ice to a glass, then pour 1/4 cup (60 ml) of the chamomile “concentrate” and the maple syrup over the ice. Mix well with a spoon or straw, then pour in the matcha. Top off the latte with as much non-dairy milk as desired and stir again. Add additional sweetener to taste if necessary, then serve immediately.

Notes

  • Blender Version: if you don’t have a matcha whisk, you can easily make this recipe in a blender as well! Sift the matcha into the blender and add 1/4 cup of hot water and blend, then add in the chilled tea, maple syrup, and milk and blend again. Pour over ice and serve immediately.
  • Matcha Powder: I recommend using a ceremonial grade matcha powder, which is of higher quality and has a better flavor. I personally purchase my matcha from Ippodo Tea.
