Summertime in the Arbor Teas office brings a veritable taste-fest of refreshing iced teas. Over the course of the summer just about every tea we offer hits the fridge for an overnight cold brew, but it feels like a special day when we decide to whip up ice cold Matcha Lemonades! Typically reserved for our in-house "Fun Fridays," and no doubt accompanied by fits of laughter and communal cheers, Matcha Lemonade is one of the most delicious and easy to make treats. Make one today to share with a friend!
For this recipe, choose one of the following three methods to blend your matcha and water: bamboo whisk; electric frother; or jam jar method. Pick the method that matches your preferred style and available kitchen utensils. The matcha whisk method uses a bamboo matcha whisk. For this method, place your matcha and one-third of the water in a flat-bottomed bowl, vigorously whisk back and forth to create a frothy mixture. After whisking, pour the remaining water into the bowl. If using the electric frother method, place your matcha and water in a deep bowl/mug/pyrex. Use an electric frother to blend the matcha and water until frothy. For the jam jar method, place the matcha and water in a glass jar and close tightly with a lid. Shake vigorously until matcha and water are mixed with a visible froth.
Makes 2 glasses
- 2 tsp organic matcha (we recommend cooking grade)
- Matcha whisk, electric frother, or lidded jar
- 1 cup cold water
- 1 1/2 cups organic lemonade
- Pour 1 cup cold water into a bowl, pyrex or jar.
- Add 2 tsp organic matcha to water. Sifting your matcha with a matcha sieve can help reduce clumps, but is not necessary.
- Using either the bamboo whisk, electric frother, or jar method as explained above, mix your matcha with water until frothy.
- Add ice to fill 2 medium sized glasses.
- Pour half of the matcha mixture into each glass over ice.
- Finish by pouring 3/4 cup organic lemonade into each glass.
- Cheers, and enjoy!
