Iced Tea: Summer Iced Matcha and Iced Matcha Latte
Summer Iced Matcha
Summer is upon us, and it is time to chill out!
Matcha is one of our go-to teas for the summer because of how easy it is to make. 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.
Sumer Iced Matcha Latte
When you have the summertime blues, you go latte! The summer version is less thick, easy to drink, and uses a ratio of half water and your favorite milk. Oh, and it is very Instagramable with the milk at the bottom, and the green tea floated on top!
2 teaspoon (4-5g) of sifted matcha
4oz cold water
4oz your favorite choice of cold milk
4-5 Ice cubes
In a bowl, add the matcha and then pour over the water. Whisk together and create an even consistency. Don't worry about trying to create foam, as this is hard to do with cold water. Add the ice cubes to the glass and pour in the milk. The milk should be at the same level or below the ice. Pour the matcha slowly over the ice so that it stays separated. Instagram time! You can choose to mix or slowly drink it separately and swirl the ice in the glass.
Enjoy and stay cool! Shop our Matcha
