There are so many amazingly delicious iced matcha lattes out there, it’s hard to pick a favorite, don’t you think? So, we went ahead and did that for you. We’ve compiled a list of what we think are the best iced matcha green tea latte recipes. It’s super fun, full of simplicity and diversity!
Matcha is great on its own, but you can’t go wrong with adding it into classic beverages and dishes. The most popular (and viral) matcha that’s commercially served would have to be the Starbucks Iced Matcha Latte. But if you look a bit deeper into the fundamentals of matcha, there are so many more ways to elevate an iced matcha green tea latte–without all that added sugar.
There are endless possibilities when you play around with an iced matcha latte. You discover that matcha goes well with so many fun ingredients. Its vibrant earthy and umami flavor pairs so well with so many things that we–along with many in our Matcha community–have created so many varieties of an iced matcha latte. Thus, our best iced matcha latte list!
Before we get into the list, let’s do a quick recap on basics and how to make the perfect iced matcha latte recipe.
First you’ll need to sift 2 teaspoons of high quality Japanese matcha powder from Matcha.com into a bowl. Slowly pour in hot (not boiling!) water into the bowl. Now you can vigorously mix the matcha mixture with a whisk in “M” or “W” motions, until it’s frothy and well-combined. Alternatively, you can also blend it with an electric frother.
In a separate glass, add in some ice and then pour in around 5 oz. of your non-dairy milk of choice. Now you can add in your matcha mixture. Give it a little swirl, and add in some simple syrup, to your taste. Et voila! Your perfect and classic iced matcha latte!
Starting with this is super simple and tastes great as it is, but sometimes we just want to create something even better. Onto the best of the best iced matcha lattes we go.
Our 8 Best Matcha Latte Recipes List
This one's sweet, simple, and just all-around basic. But that doesn't make it any less! The Vegan Iced Vanilla Matcha Oat Maple Latte is an elevated classic that really brings out the flavor of high quality matcha and the creaminess of the oat milk.
Somewhat similar to the Starbucks Pink Drink, this Iced Strawberry Matcha Latte is just as sweet and even more refreshing, without all the added sugar. It's both tart and earthy, and just downright delicious to sip on!
There's double the goodness of matcha in this recipe, with a matcha chai base topped with a matcha cold foam, it's matcha overload in the best way possible! With the chai adding a bit of a kick to this drink, it definitely brings out all the flavors more. The Iced Matcha Chai Latte with Matcha Cold Foam might not make sense when you first hear it, but you won't stop sipping once you try it yourself.
Matcha itself is earthy and aromatic, which pairs beautifully with lavender's floral flavor with hints of mint and rosemary undertones. It makes for a really deliciously nutty and botanical flavor combination that doesn't overpower each other.
In combining matcha tea and hibiscus tea, we can take in the benefits of both these wonderful teas. Hibiscus tea is known to be a good source of vitamin C.

More than the fantastic flavor that an iced hibiscus matcha latte creates, this drink also doubles in healthy goodness too!
For the busy ones, this one is the answer to your super packed day. It's quick and easy to prepare; and the blend will keep you energized and going throughout the day.
