This is a very simple tutorial, but good to know! While my favorite way to enjoy matcha is whisked hot, this is such a great change of pace when the temperature heats up. It's so refreshing to sip this out in the sunshine to get my daily boost of zenergy. If you hadn't noticed by now, I'm crazy for matcha!

1 tsp. matcha powder*
2/3 cup water
Large handful of ice cubes
Iced Matcha Two Ways
#1: Prepare whisked hot matcha then add ice
Heat water to just under boiling (about 160 degrees). Add water to 1 tsp. matcha in a soup bowl. With a bamboo whisk, whisk very briskly in a straight line back and forth. Continue until you get a nice layer of froth (about 30-45 seconds). Carefully transfer to a glass, add plenty of ice, and enjoy!
#2: Cold brew
Thoroughly shake matcha with cold water and add ice cubes.
*Note: my very favorite matcha brand is Encha.Life!
