Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte

A toasted English muffin smeared with almond butter and sea salt is just begging to be washed down with sips of this cold, creamy, sweet, antioxidant-dense iced matcha green tea latte. It’s like the world’s healthiest form of a latte. I know you’re maybe asking questions. Raising eyebrows. Matcha is a tiny bit off the mainstream map, I get it.

But hey – can you buy almond milk? do you have Amazon? because that’s how I got started with my matcha green tea latte obsession. Look out, hippie matcha green tea latte drinkers. The food regulars be comin for ya.

So to set the stage. MATCHA GREEN TEA IS THE BOMB.COM.

I didn’t know about it until, like, two months ago. It all started with an obsession with a local tea bar in St. Paul, where I’d order this thing called a Royal Tea Latte (I’m speaking in past tense as if this is something of days gone by, but in reality I’m stopping there on my way home from work to get my third one this week – large plz – and I have zero regrets) and because the Royal had to brew for a few minutes, I’d sit there and watch all the other tea people ordering and navigating the scary-exciting menu of a tea bar.

And that’s when I realized: whoa, matcha.

I started ordering matcha tea latte drinks at coffee shops. I was just curious. I found some things out.

  1. I’m going to be honest – I can’t stomach matcha green tea lattes when they’re hot. Just… too much of a green plant steaminess in my face.
  2. I do, however, LOVE love love them cold. Icy cold and creamy and sweet, perfect for sipping through a straw. Bless that green drink.
  3. Unfortunately, when served cold, there is always the danger of getting matcha green tea chunks up in your straw and, so so sorry, up in your mouth. And that brings us back to another thing I can’t stomach about matcha green tea lattes, which is, obviously, MATCHA GREEN TEA CHUNKS. Not okay.
  4. The solution to getting them just how I want them? Silky-smooth and lusciously green and cold and creamy and a teeny bit over-sweetened? The solution is making them at home. Because you can buy yourself a little packet of matcha powder and your fave creamy almond milk and be a whiz at this in less than 60 seconds flat.

Get a mason jar with a lid. Imma show you.

That’s the matcha paste (you have to make a paste so you don’t get chunks) mixed with the almond milk and agave.

60 seconds later, you are sipping that matcha green tea latte like a boss.

It’s packed with antioxidants (thanks matcha!) and it’s ULTRA creamy while staying light in calories and fat (thanks Almond Breeze!) and completely plant-powered (thanks agave!) and GUESS WHAT there’s a bonus.

It has a little bit of caffeine. BZZZZZ

Iced Matcha Latte Recipe: How to get Started

One of the biggest things to keep in mind, especially when making an ice matcha latte, is that you’ll have to be careful of clumps. Matcha clumps up naturally because of the static electricity and the super fine particle size.

It’s an honest indicator of high quality, albeit not the only one. This effect is most prominent in an iced latte as the cold temperature keeps the powder from dissolving as well as hot water might.

Of course the clumps won’t hurt you, it’s just not the preferred texture per se. Instead you can be sure to achieve a uniform matcha powder without clumps by choosing to sift your powder before preparing the iced matcha latte.

It’s also worth double checking that you’ve selected a high quality latte matcha, such as our Barista Matcha options, specially crafted in Uji, Japan for daily drinking and lattes of all types.

  • You can also step it up a notch with super premium Ceremonial Grade Matcha , but is not required.
  • Choosing an authentic source and highest quality of matcha you can afford will ensure your iced matcha latte is the very best it can be.

Savory, sweet and all, without that bitterness from low-quality matcha hidden under the sweetener at your local chain cafe.

Choosing an Iced Matcha Latte Powder

Here’s a helpful color-guide to choosing matcha tea . Plus it’s like two-birds with one-stone, as you get all the matcha latte benefits and incredible matcha latte flavors that this ancient tea can offer, all by selecting a premium quality.

Ok and not to delay any further… here it is:

Best Matcha Latte, Iced | Matcha Latte Ingredients

  • 5 oz non-Dairy Milk of choice
  • 1oz filtered water
  • 2 tsp Matcha Powder
  • 2 tsp Maple Syrup ( optional )
  • Ice Cubes as needed

Iced Matcha Latte Recipe | Matcha Latte Healthy Directions

  1. In your Latte Tumbler , mix the matcha green tea powder with the filtered water – just enough to form a paste at the bottom.
  2. Use an Electric Frother to ensure all matcha is fully dissolved, like a thick syrup almost.
  3. Add non-Dairy milk, and sweetener if any. Move Electric Frother closer to the middle of the latte to create the right blending motion.
  4. Add Ice Cubes one-by-one to help the latte reach the brim of your Latte Tumbler for easy sipping.
  5. Kick back and enjoy!

Creamy Matcha Latte

If you’re looking to lighten up your morning drink for the warmer months, a switch to matcha may be just the thing for you. Its bright grassy notes evoke a sense of zen along with a jitter-free alertness. Best of all, it can be poured over ice for a refreshing beverage in the summertime.

L-theanine is an amino acid that is responsible for the calm alertness after sipping this drink and matcha has the most! This makes for sustained energy and focus without the jittery feeling you may experience with coffee. These tea crystals are unique because they blend effortlessly into the hot coconut milk, no steeping required ideal for busy mornings.

Raw honey adds its signature floral, spice notes, and sweetness that balances the earthy matcha flavor. Honey that is raw hasn’t been heated, so its precious minerals and enzymes are preserved.

If you’ve found that you don’t like the flavor of matcha, you might be delighted by its flavor when mixed with milk. This gives it a more balanced creamy texture and sweetness, toning down its bitterness. A yin and yang balance.

Not a fan of coconut milk? Any type of milk will work including almond, flaxseed or even hemp.

What is Matcha?

Matcha is a powdered green tea containing 137 times more antioxidants than brewed green tea (like, whoa). Both come from the tea plant (camellia sinensis), but with matcha, the entire leaf is consumed.

It has traditionally been consumed as part of Japanese tea ceremonies for centuries, but has become more widely known and popular in recent years and is now enjoyed around the world in tea lattes, smoothies, desserts, snacks, and more! Learn more about the fascinating history of matcha here.

What kind of matcha should I use in this matcha latte recipe?

We get this question all the time. Our best matcha for latte blends are either our Superior Ceremonial Matcha or the Organic Ceremonial Matcha. These are incredibly versatile blends that allow you to make an affordable matcha latte with reduced levels of sweetener. Just note that the Organic Ceremonial Matcha has an overall lighter matcha taste and go better with alternative milks. Our Superior Ceremonial Matcha pairs best with regular cow’s milk.

You can also use any of our other ceremonial grade matcha blends to make the matcha latte, but it can get costly very quickly. Most of the nuanced flavors will also be lost amidst the milk and sweetener. It is possible to use our Creative Culinary to make matcha lattes, but we discourage this. You may end up adding more sugar and/or milk to balance the more pronounced bittersweet taste of our Creative Culinary Matcha.

Best way to mix matcha and water for matcha lattes

Where possible, we try to only incorporate tools most people already have in the kitchen. But for this matcha latte recipe, our recommendation is to mix the matcha and water in a separate bowl using a bamboo whisk.

  • We do not recommend the shaking method because the matcha mixture is quite thick. Shaking it up in a bottle may result in some wastage if you cannot get every drop out easily.
  • We also do not recommend battery-operated frothers because these tend to clump up the matcha. They do best where there is a lower amount of matcha compared to water.
  • You may use a blender if you prefer that. We usually avoid blenders because of the extra cleanup required.
  • If you are using a tall glass to make your matcha latte, consider purchasing a longer bamboo whisk. These also come with smaller heads that allow you to whisk your matcha in a smaller bowl/glass.

Which milk and sweetener to use for matcha lattes

We’ve tested a bunch of ingredients for matcha latte , and our favorite is regular cow’s milk and powdered brown sugar. Of course, this is just our preference. Feel free to swap the type of milk or sweetener if you have dietary restrictions or just simply prefer something else. We have tried this matcha latte recipe with many other alternative milks (almond, soy, macadamia, oat) as well as other types of sweetener (acacia honey, simple syrup, maple syrup, monkfruit sweetener, stevia). They are all perfectly viable alternatives to make matcha latte.

Tools & equipment I recommend for the perfect matcha latte recipe

First and foremost, let it be known that I have a fabulous discount just for you. If you want to check out the matcha powder I recommend below, I've got a 10% off coupon code for you.

It is "Monica" but if you follow the links I've provided, it will automatically be added to your cart for you! 😉

Here's some other fabulous products I recommend for perfecting your at-home matcha latte recipe game:

  • Good quality matcha powder This could be my best tip of them all, and my number 1 go-to is Mizuba matcha. Their culinary grade powder (which is not something I would recommend making lattes with from other brands) is the absolute best. It's so high quality, and you don't need to spend the extra bucks on a ceremonial grade! A game changer in the matcha latte making experience. You will get creamy, dreamy froth and a smooth consistency and texture. Yum! This is great to use whether or not you have a blender. It really breaks apart the clumps well! It is very important you do not add scorching water to the matcha, as the leaves from the tea will burn. Be sure to measure the temperature using a thermometer. If you don't have access to a high-speed blender, I highly recommend sifting the matcha through this before mixing it with hot water. If you aren't using a blender but feel comfortable spending a few bucks on a frother, I highly recommend this one. There is nothing better than frothy milk in a latte!
  • High quality non-dairy milk
    I recommend the following: Milkadamia, Elmhurst Milk, New Barn, or Oatly!

Like I mentioned in our previous latte recipe that uses Hojicha (see how to make a hojicha latte here!) many Japanese people are lactose intolerant. Whilst using cow's milk is very common in lattes, non-dairy milks are used a lot too!

Soy milk (豆乳) is probably the most common and popular but other alternatives such as almond milk and oat milk are gaining popularity too.

Matcha goes very well with soy milk so we decided to use soy milk for this recipe, but you can use your preferred milk and it will still taste great!
