Iced Tea Week: Iced Matcha LatteAuthor: DaisyChubb | Filed under: Tea
Happy Friday! Why not celebrate not having to wake up at 6am (who’s with me?) and drink Matcha all night long! I’m pretty excited because my new friend Jess comes back from her honeymoon next week! I mean, I’m sad that she has to stop her holiday, but she left after we just became friends so I miss her!!!
We’re gonna geek out together and have tea parties and I can’t wait
Also, hello CANADA DAY WEEKEND! I have no idea what we’re going to do but FIREWORKS better be involved or I’m gonna cry! Fireworks and food from trucks pls! Also, I’m going to make Swamp Shrimp tonight. It sounds so freaking good. Dip the french bread all up in there! Yes!!! I’m telling you now because I won’t be taking pictures – I’ll be too busy sopping up buttery goodness with french bread.
On to the tutorial! I have finally perfect this sweet, cool Matcha treat. I wish I could have it every day because it’s the icy nectar of the gods. Medea would be proud.
Iced Matcha Latte
Medium sized cup or mug
1/4 cup 175 degree water
1 tsp sweetener (I use sugar or simple syrup)
1/2 cup cold milk
1-2 ice cubes
2 tsp your favourite Matcha (I’m drinking Banana & Caramel)
Chasen or Milk Frother (to whisk the matcha)
Measure out 2 tsp of matcha and add to cup.
Add about 1/3 cup 175 degree water and froth your matcha like the dickens!
When it’s incorporated, add a touch more water and sweetener, and froth again.
(I like my milk frother! It foams my matcha gooood)
Add one or two large ice cubes (more if yours are small and/or cute, unlike mine)
Top with milk and enjoy. Seriously. You’re done. Drink this deliciousness!
Wasn’t that easy? The hard part is not making 7 in a row. That said – I find it easier to make the iced matcha latte in a small cup or mug, rather than a large batch. That way, the matcha doesn’t have time to clump and sink to the bottom, and it’s the perfect amount of flavour without being diluted with the ice or milk. But that’s just, like, my opinion, man.
Thanks for popping in on Iced Tea Week! Treat yourself and ice some tea to cool yourself down this summer.
