How to make Iced Matcha
From: TeavanaTea | April 2, 2012 | Part 4 of 5
Join our Master Teaologist, Naoko, behind the scenes in our cupping room, as she demonstrates how to prepare refreshing Iced Matcha.
Iced Matcha
Preparation
  • Matcha is a versatile tea that is as delicious over ice as it is in an artisan latte.

  • Sifting your Matcha is important when making iced Matcha to prevent the powder from clumping.

  • Adding your water in two parts will ensure a smoother beverage.

  • German Rock Sugar simple syrup is a sweet addition to any iced tea. Learn how to make it here.
  1. Set mesh strainer over pitcher and add 2 teaspoons of Matcha powder and then sift.

  2. Add 16oz of 175F water to sifted Matcha in two parts. Combine thoroughly.

  3. Add German Rock Sugar simple syrup and stir.

  4. Pour over ice and enjoy!


German Rock Sugar Simple Syrup

In a 2 cup Perfect Tea Maker, add:

  1. 1 cup German Rock Sugar

  2. 1 cup hot water (208F)

  3. Stir well and let sit until all sugar dissolves. About 5 minutes.

  4. Strain, let cool in fridge and Ready to Use!
*We recommend for immediate use of simple syrup, use 'quick ice method' to bring temperature down. Fill Amandine pitcher with ice cubes, strain warm 16oz Perfect Tea Maker with dissolved sugar directly on Pitcher. Strain excess ice cubes with a mesh strainer, directly into a reusable container. Ready to use immediately. Simple syrup stays fresh in fridge for one week.
