Iced Matcha Latte

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon ELEV8 Ultra Premium matcha powder
  • 1/4 cup of hot water (not boiling water, approx. 70-80°C)
  • 3/4 cup milk (or plant-based milk such as almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, etc.)
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • Ice cubes
  • Optional topping: whipped cream, extra matcha powder or a pinch of cinnamon

Preparation:

  1. Sift the matcha powder: Start by sifting the matcha powder into a small bowl. This step helps to dissolve any lumps and ensures a smooth texture of the drink.
  2. Prepare the matcha paste: In a separate cup or bowl, pour the hot water over the filtered matcha powder. Use a bamboo tea stirrer (chasen) or a small smooth blender and stir vigorously with a whizzing motion until you have a smooth and frothy matcha paste.
  3. Sweeten the matcha paste: Add honey or maple syrup to the matcha paste and stir until completely dissolved. Adjust the sweetness to taste.
  4. Make the ice cube latte: Fill a glass with ice cubes. Pour the milk (or plant milk) over the ice.
  5. Add the matcha paste: Carefully pour the sweetened matcha paste over the milk and ice cubes.
  6. Stir and Mix: Use a long spoon or straw to stir the matcha paste into the milk to mix well.
  7. Optional topping: If desired, top with whipped cream and sprinkle with extra matcha powder or cinnamon to enhance flavor and presentation.
  8. Let's enjoy: The Ice Cube Matcha Latte is now ready and ready to be enjoyed! Taste and enjoy the pleasant and refreshing taste of matcha.
