Milk green tea recipe

How to make green tea with milk
Print Recipe
Prep Time:3 mins


  • Tea kettle Optional


  • 1-2 Tbsp. green tea (loose leaf tea) - 1 tsp. if using tea powder (or 2 tea bags)
  • 1 Cup water
  • A splash of milk of choice
  • sweetener of choice (optional)


  • Place your tea in the mug or teapot.
  • Pour hot water over the tea.
    The recommended water temperature for green tea is usually between 160-180º F (70-82º C).
    Cover and let rest for 2-3 minutes.
    [In case of doubt, follow package instructions]
  • When the steep time is over, remove the tea (unless you are using powder tea; in that case, the tea remains there).
  • Add milk to your taste. It’s best to begin with a small amount of milk and gradually add more until you reach the desired ratio.
  • You may sweeten it if you want.


To turn this green tea latte into an iced tea, you may cold steep the tea or prepare it hot and then cool with ice cubes. In this case, you might want to make your green tea more concentrated by using more tea leaves.
