Easy Iced Matcha
A simple tutorial on how to make Iced Matcha - two ways! A great summertime refreshment filled with antioxidants and energy.
- 1 tsp. organic matcha powder (ceremonial grade)
- 2/3 cup to 1 cup water
- Large handful of ice cubes (about 5-6 cubes)
Method #1: Cold Brew (Matcha On-the-Go)
In a shaker cup with lid, thoroughly shake 1 tsp. matcha with water and ice cubes. That’s it!
My husband uses this easy method to take his matcha to work, and I love bringing it outside in the summer.
Method #2: Whisk Hot Matcha Then Add Ice
Heat water to just under boiling (about 160°F / 71°C). Add 1 tsp. matcha in a matcha bowl (or a soup bowl works great).
Add hot water to matcha. Using a bamboo whisk, whisk very briskly in a straight line back and forth. Continue whisking until you get a nice layer of froth (about 30 seconds).
Carefully transfer matcha to a glass. Add plenty of ice, and enjoy!
Matcha powder: Be sure to find a good quality organic matcha powder with bright green color.
