How to make an iced matcha latte
Sift your matcha green tea into a bowl. Green tea powder tends to be lumpy if not sifted so don’t skip this step.
Add a couple tablespoons of hot water to your matha and use your whisk to stir until smooth.
Pour milk into an ice filled glass along with your desired amount of sweetener and stir. I like maple syrup but you can also try muddled lime or stevia.
Add your cooled matcha to the glass and top with mint or an edible flower.
