Iced Matcha Latte is a cold milk drink with Matcha green tea powder and sweetener. It’s not really a latte since there is no espresso in it. But, it has became very popular since a big coffee shop chain put it on their menu.
Matcha is a kind of green tea that is powdered, which is traditionally used for the Japanese tea ceremony, and it is different from regular green tea leaves. Matcha tastes rather bitter, but its refreshing flavor goes well with dairy and sugar. It has become a common flavor for many drinks and desserts, such as this Latte, or in Matcha Ice Cream.
It is extremely easy to make at home, and a great cold drink for tea time during a hot summer.
