Our favorite Matcha recipes to cool things down
A light matcha drink made with carbonated water that is incredibly easy and thirst-quenching. By using only a very small amount of matcha, we get less caffeine and a captivating translucent green color that gently flavors the water.
1/2 teaspoon or 1/2g of Shouraku Matcha
10oz of carbonated water or mineral water with strong carbonation
spouted bowl for mixing
Chasen or any type of whisk
Sift the matcha into the mixing bowl and add about 1oz of the carbonated water. Gently whisk the matcha and water together but not too much to preserve some of the bubbles from the water. The point is to get a good consistency and not create foam. Add plain carbonated water to the glass first and then slowly pour the matcha mix on top. The carbonation will react strongly so do it slowly so it doesn't foam over. Enjoy!
Summer Iced Matcha
Our Summer Iced Matcha is not as thick and meant to quench your thirst with a little bit of energy boost for that midday drag after being in the sun. We always recommend using good quality water and ice cubes. It will bring out the best taste of your matcha!
1 liter cold bottled or filtered water
2 teaspoon (5-6g) of sifted matcha
1 liter pitcher
Add the matcha to a bowl and incorporate some of the water so that you can whisk it together and get a good consistency. Add more water into the mixture we just created so that it will pour easily into the pitcher and not leave too much matcha stuck on the bowl. Add some ice to the pitcher and top off with the remaining water. Time to sit back and enjoy! We recommend that you drink it within 30-60 minutes after making since the matcha will start to oxidize and turn brown after it comes in contact with the water.
