I discovered a passion for tea while I was living in China. I visited so many teahouses, trying one green tea after the other, and the taste was never the same.
But it's only when I came back in France that I tried my first cup of matcha. And it's been love a first sip. The following recipe is very easy, and it's a favourite of mine, perfect for long Sunday afternoons.
For one serving:
- 1/4 cup of boiling of water
- 3/4 cup of soy milk (almond milk works very well too)
- 1 teaspoon of matcha powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar.
Boil the water, at the same time sift the powder gentling in a cup. Add the boiling water very slowly, wisking the paste. Add sugar. Bring the milk to a boil, whipping the top to make foam. Gently pour the milk over the green tea, the the foam. And voilà!
