How to Make an Iced Matcha Latte

In the afternoon, around 3pm, I get SUPER sleepy. I need a pick me up. And that pick me up during warmer weathered months is this: an Iced Matcha Latte.

And in the afternoon when I need a bit of a pick-me-up and know I can’t handle coffee or an espresso beverage (I’ll be up all night), a matcha latte is the perfect go-to.

What is Matcha?

Matcha powder is made up of ground up green tea leaves. Instead of brewing a cup of tea with tea leaves, this is ground up leaves that are dissolved into the warm/hot water. If you ever have the privilege of visiting Kyoto, Japan, be sure to go to a tea house and buy some beautiful matcha green tea powder for the road. The packets make great gifts.

This Matcha Iced Latte couldn’t be simpler. As a result, it’s the perfect thing to make at home!

How to Make Iced Matcha Latte


You put a few teaspoons of matcha powder in a measuring cup and add a few tablespoons of hot water.


Whisk it until the matcha has dissolved and then you pour in the remaining water and whisk some more. I transfer it to the fridge or freezer to chill for about 15 minutes.

I know the cooling part is a drag but it helps a whole lot in the end result.


After the matcha is cooled, add a ridiculous amount of ice to a glass. And then, pour the almond milk (or milk of choice) into the glass and a splash of simple syrup. Lastly, pour in the matcha. As a result, there is unbridled happiness!

I mean…this isn’t really a recipe but more of an idea of inspiration? (I hope…?)

Iced Matcha Latte Recipe

Prep: 5 minutes
Total: 5 minutes
Servings: 2 glasses of iced matcha tea
Make this easy Iced Matcha Latte just like your favorite coffee shop. Matcha is mixed together with cold milk, served over ice.


  • 2 teaspoons matcha powder
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 1 cup warm water
  • Ice
  • Milk of choice, (I used almond milk)


  • In a measuring cup or bowl, add the matcha powder. Pour in the 1 to 2 tablespoons of hot water and whisk until the matcha has fully incorporated into the water. This should create almost a bit of a paste.
  • Pour in the remaining 1 cup of water and mix. Transfer to the fridge or freezer to chill for about 15 minutes.
  • Fill two glasses full of ice and add your milk of choice so the glass is about 3/4 of the way full. If you like, this is a great time to add any simple syrup. Lastly, pour in the chilled matcha and stir.

  1. Can I use the milk to stir into the matcha powder instead? And is using a mini electric mixer work? Honestly really excited to use the recipe!

    This is my first time making a clump-free matcha latte!!! It’s not quite as strong as I’d prefer, so I’ll try increasing the matcha next time by a quarter teaspoon (or use a different variety), but overall I’m pleased with the results. I used soy milk, a splash of unflavored soy creamer, and cardamom syrup. I look forward to experimenting with different syrups and non-dairy milks. Thank you!

    This was great! Thank you. I was wondering how to use some vanilla matcha I bought. I added my homemade mint syrup to it and used Silk’s new-ish Nextmilk – which is really good in drinks. It turned out perfectly.
