Our favorite Matcha recipes to cool things down
This concoction made with matcha and carbonated water is incredibly convenient and refreshing. A reduced amount of matcha results in a lowered caffeine level and a lovely pale green hue that subtly flavors the beverage.
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 vessel and incorporate roughly 1oz of carbonated liquid to it. Then, delicately stir the mixture to keep some of the bubbles from the water, attaining a desirable consistency but not producing foam. Pour the carbonated water in the glass initially, and then gradually add the matcha mix on top and savor the reaction. Proceed cautiously to prevent the mixture from overflowing with foam. Enjoy!
Summer Iced Matcha
Our Summer Iced Matcha is formulated to refresh and restore vigor with a gentle burst of green energy: it's heavenly after basking in the sun. To achieve the ultimate flavor, use the highest quality of water and ice cubes. Together, they heighten the perfect taste of your matcha.
1 liter cold bottled or filtered water
2 teaspoon (5-6g) of sifted matcha
1 liter pitcher
1 tablespoon fresh lemon/lime juice (optional)
Mix some of the water with the matcha in a bowl until it achieves an ideal consistency, then pour the concoction into the pitcher. Add ice and top it off with the remaining water, then sit back and enjoy at your leisure. For the best experience, consume within 30-60 minutes after making, as the matcha will oxidize and turn brown soon after it comes into contact with the water. Adding fresh lemon juice will allow the mixture to sit longer without oxidation and adds a refreshing citrus flavor.
