ICYMI, this drink went viral on our TikTok page with 324K views (and counting!), and the number one request we got was for the recipe. We heard you, matchafam! Your wish is our command and we present you with the viral and easy lavender matcha latte below.
Are matcha and lavender good together?
Matcha itself is earthy and aromatic, which pairs beautifully with lavender's floral flavor with hints of mint and rosemary undertones. It makes for a really deliciously nutty and botanical flavor combination that doesn't overpower each other.
This recipe takes on the classic iced matcha latte recipe and giving it a spring/summer makeover by adding just one ingredient: lavender syrup! The unique pairing combines the earthy flavor of matcha with the sweet and floral aroma of lavender. For those who are looking for something refreshing but also relaxing to drink in the afternoon, this was made for you.
Whether you enjoy it hot or iced, a lavender matcha latte is sure please the taste buds and soothe your senses at the same time.
Try this floral take on a classic matcha latte recipe:
Sift ceremonial grade matcha powder in a bowl to remove any clumping and uneven textures.
Heat some water to 175°F then pour it into the bowl. Never use boiling hot water as this could burn the powder and bring out the bitterness.
Whisk well until combined. You'll see a beautiful layer of froth will be created on top.
Fill a deep glass with ice cubes. Then add 1 tbsp of lavender syrup. You can adjust this according to your preference!
Pour in your choice of non-dairy milk.
Finally, pour the matcha, and give it a little stir. Taste and enjoy your summer drink!
