My Matcha Pick:
Questions You May Have
Is there caffeine in this drink?
Yes, there’s caffeine in matcha so there’s caffeine in this drink.
How can I tell if I’m using good quality matcha?
The better the quality of matcha, the brighter the green it will be. More expensive matcha is practically neon green, and cheaper matcha is a dull, brownish green.
Can I add ice to this?
The drink can be served with or without ice.
How long can I keep this in the refrigerator?
I like to drink it within 4 days.
Matcha Milk Recipe Tips
- A wide-mouth bottle will make it easier to put the ingredients into the container. You don’t want to make a mess trying to get the expensive matcha powder into a tiny opening.
- Matcha is meant to be had with something sweet, so adding a sweetener into the drink makes it taste so much better.
- I used maple syrup but you can use honey or simple syrup. Regular sugar won’t dissolve and it will sink to the bottom.

How to Make Matcha Milk Tea
STEP 1: Pour water into an airtight container.
Water goes in first to make sure the matcha doesn’t clump up in the bottle.
STEP 2: Add matcha.
This matcha milk recipe uses 1 teaspoon of matcha per serving.
STEP 3: Close lid and shake for 10 seconds.
Shake, shake, shake.
Shake it vigorously to make sure the water and matcha get mixed well.
STEP 4: Add maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. Close lid and shake for 5 seconds.
STEP 5: Pour milk into a bottle.
I’m using these completely adorable milk bottles that have leakproof silicone lids to store my matcha milk. You can also drink it straight from the bottle.
STEP 6: Pour sweetened matcha from the water bottle into the milk bottle.
Because I’m using a good quality matcha the drink is a nice bright green.
The lower the price of your matcha, the lower the quality and your matcha milk may be more brown than bright green.
Each milk bottle is 16 oz. and it will hold 2 servings of the matcha milk recipe.
