If you've been wondering how to make a matcha latte, read on. At least, if you want to know how I make my matcha latte!

Matcha lattes have become super popular, and I've recently jumped in on this trend!

During my recent book tour, I realized very quickly that my body simply couldn't handle caffeine from coffee. So, I stopped drinking coffee while on that trip. And, when I got home I decided to try drinking matcha. So far, I'm loving it!

I do feel a little bit of the caffeine from the matcha, but it doesn't feel at all the way coffee did. If you compare how much caffeine is in matcha to coffee, you'll see it's quite a lot less. I googled to see how much caffeine I was likely getting in my morning Chameleon Cold Brew (CCB) compared to matcha, and here's what I found.

The way I mixed my CCB, I was getting anywhere from 200-250mg of caffeine. source
The way I mix my matcha, I now get anywhere from 35-70mg of caffeine. source (not entirely sure how accurate this is)
