With spring in full swing and summer right around the corner, we’ve got iced tea on our minds! Few iced teas compare to a delicious iced matcha, and what’s better than a matcha iced tea with mint and a hint of lime? This refreshing iced tea takes only a few minutes to make, but is so delicious you’ll be dreaming about it long after it’s gone – we definitely were!
For this recipe, we used our Haru No Ko Ceremonial Grade Matcha, but you can definitely create this same drink with our Grade A Matcha! If you’re wanting to be a little more adventurous, you could even give this recipe a go with Gen Mai Matcha. Yum!!
- 2 cups cold filtered water
- 2 tsp. Matcha Grade A
- 1 lime, sliced
- Fresh mint leaves
- Scoop and sift Art of Tea Matcha Grade A into a bowl or wide cup.
- Add 4 oz. cold water and whisk until foam appears and the matcha is fully suspended in liquid.
- Add remaining cold water, a squeeze of lime, fresh mint leaves, and ice.
- Stir until fully mixed.
- Serve in a tall glass over ice, garnish with more mint leaves and a lime slice.
- Place the mint leaves in the palm of your hand. Using the other hand, gently tap the leaves to release the oil. (This is a great alternative to muddling the leaves and keeps them whole.)
- If you don't have a matcha whisk available, try a hand held frother or shake vigorously in a cocktail shaker.
- Sweeten to taste with simple syrup or honey.
