Iced Matcha

On In Recipes, Tea Blog

Making iced matcha is quite simple and refreshing. Here’s a basic recipe:


  • 1 teaspoon of matcha powder (about 2.5 gr)
  • 2-3 teaspoons of hot water (not boiling)
  • Sweetener (optional)
  • Ice cubes
  • Cold water or milk of your choice (such as dairy milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc.)


  1. Start by sifting the matcha powder into a cup or bowl to remove any clumps and ensure a smooth consistency.
  2. Add 2-3 teaspoons of hot water to the matcha. Use a bamboo whisk or an egg beater to mix until the matcha is fully dissolved and there are no lumps. This creates a concentrated matcha paste.
  3. If you’d like to sweeten your matcha, you can add your preferred sweetener at this stage. Options include honey, sugar, maple syrup, or stevia. Stir until the sweetener is fully dissolved.
  4. Fill a glass with ice cubes. You can use as much or as little ice as you prefer, depending on how strong you want your iced matcha to be.
  5. Pour the matcha concentrate over the ice cubes.
  6. Top off the glass with cold water or milk of your choice. You can adjust the amount based on your preference for the strength and creaminess of the matcha.
  7. Stir the matcha thoroughly to ensure that it’s well mixed with the cold liquid and the ice cubes.
  8. Optionally, you can garnish your iced matcha with a slice of lemon, a sprig of mint, or some additional matcha powder on top for presentation.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy your refreshing iced matcha!

Feel free to adjust the ratios of matcha, water, and sweetener according to your taste preferences. Some people prefer a stronger matcha flavor, while others may prefer a milder taste. Similarly, you can experiment with different types of milk or alternative sweeteners to customize your iced matcha to your liking.
