Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte

Spread the love

So it might be a stretch to call this matcha green tea latte a Korean beverage but several Korean cookbooks for Western audiences included some matcha green tea desserts and beverages.  This iced version of a matcha green tea latte was so good I figured if you don’t want to beat ‘em, join ‘em.

I’ve wanted to try matcha for a long time but never saw it reasonably priced in any grocery stores.  When I saw a packet for under $5 I grabbed it and started experimenting.  I thought it tasted best with a mix of water and milk.  The water allowed the grassiness of the matcha to shine through while a bit of milk helped add creaminess.

Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte

Yield: 2-3 servings

Ingredients:

* 2 cup water
* 1 cup whole milk
* 1/4 cup sweetened matcha green tea powder
* 2 cups ice
* whipped cream, optional

Directions:

Heat the water and milk in a saucepan over low heat until warmed very slightly (this helps dissolve the matcha powder). Add the matcha powder and stir until dissolved. Combine in a blender with ice and pulse until the ice is partially crushed. Pour into individual glasses and top with whipped cream, if desired.
