How to Make an Iced Matcha Latte

I love making coffee shop drinks at home. Everything from Iced Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Horchata Coffee to Mint Vanilla Iced Coffee.

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

STEP 1:

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

STEP 2:

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.

STEP 4:

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…?)

Make this easy Iced Matcha Latte just like your favorite coffee shop. Matcha is mixed together with cold milk, served over ice.

  • 1 tea kettle
  • 1 matcha whisk

Ingredients 

  • 2 teaspoons matcha powder
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons hot water

      This was my first attempt at making an iced latte. This is a good recipe!! I followed it word for word. I made my own simple syrup. Comparing it to the iced matcha I buy at my local coffee shop the one I made was a little thinner and watery so I added a little more oat milk and a little more simple syrup and it really helped. I’ll try a thicker oat milk and I think it will be exactly like the coffee shop matcha. Highly recommend! Thanks for the recipe…it’ll save me money!

  1. Hi! Can I save the 2nd cup for later/next day if stored in a mason jar that’s kept in the fridge? Will the taste or the benefits of matcha be compromised? Thanks in advance!

    I bought some high grade matcha green tea & can’t wait to make this!! I love the StarBucks one but they don’t always put in enough matcha tea!!!

  3. I love this recipe! I made some modifications to it, like the amount of milk, but that was all preference! It was super smooth and refreshing! Thanks for sharing!

  4. While green tea will usually deliver many health benefits, there are several precautions for those with current health conditions and allergies. Green tea is without a doubt better and viable alternative to drinking coffee.

    I love this! I made two servings and downed it within minutes 😉 I added maple syrup as a sweetener. It was very easy to make and not grainy at all like mine sometimes are. Thanks for the recipe!

    I’ve tried so many matcha recipes that leave it separated and bad. This one is by far the best! Thanks for sharing!!

    Really delicious matcha. I don’t have the proper tools so I just used a whisk But still tasted really good. I’ve tried a few recipes that weren’t great but this one really is. Simple, easy and so fresh.

        Just made it and it turned out great. The secret to a non gritty matcha is using Japanese matcha. Other matcha is not grown or harvested the way Japanese matcha is which then results in grittiness and no foam. I added vanilla and agave- yummy!
