Try this easy and beginner-friendly cold brew matcha recipe at home:
If you don't have a chashaku, you can use a measuring teaspoon to scoop matcha powder (about 2-3 scoops) over a sift resting on a tumbler or mason jar. This is very important to having a clump-free and smooth cold brew matcha.
Add water and shake until combined! You can use an electric frother to speed things up, just make sure your tumbler or jar is deep enough to avoid making a mess. It's also best to use warm or room temperature water to make sure the matcha will dissolve well.
If you're making it to enjoy at home, fill a glass with ice and pour in the matcha. Stir for a bit to cool the matcha, then try!
If you're busy and need it on the go, fill the same tumbler or jar with ice. Cover with a lid and shake to cool. Enjoy it throughout the day.
