Simple Iced Matcha Latte

Updated: Oct 5, 2019

Hi everyone! I hope you have been having a great month of June so far. It's been almost a week since my short family trip to Perth, and man has it been hot around here! While we were in Perth, we enjoyed cool Australian winter temperatures, which is unlike the climate here in Singapore.

If, like me, it's hot where you are and you need a drink to cool off, this simple iced matcha latte would be perfect for the job! It is really easy to prepare and you don't need any special equipment (such as a bamboo whisk commonly used to make matcha tea) nor ingredients. All you need to make this are high quality matcha, milk, honey, water and ice cubes! You could even make this dairy-free by using a nut milk or soy milk and I'm sure it would be just as delicious.

A note on purchasing matcha powder: please get a really high quality matcha – at least a high quality culinary grade or better still, a ceremonial grade matcha. High quality matcha tastes better and is a beautiful green colour (as opposed to dull green of lower quality matcha). It would be more expensive but it would be worth it.

That's it! Really simple and straightforward, whilst being very refreshing. Hope you give it whirl!

  • 30 ml (2 Tbs) warm water
