After spending 10 days in China, I found myself thirsty, and stuck at the Shanghai airport waiting for my flight home.

We ate lunch and proceeded to make our way through the terminal in search of something that could make my mouth feel just a little less dry.

Try this easy recipe and learn how to make iced green tea latte!

As we neared our gate, I saw the single largest conglomeration of white people I’d seen thus far in China.

Naturally, they were all standing in line at the airport Starbucks.

I normally avoid visiting “Americanized” establishments while abroad, but seeing as how we had just eaten lunch at the airport KFC, I figured we could make an exception.

We got in line and immediately received knowing nods and eye contact from the other patrons in a way that said “yes, you have found the mothership.”

I ordered something that I hadn’t ever had before.

“I’ll have an Iced Grande Green Tea Latte, please.”

Nothing, I tell you, nothing has ever quenched my thirst like that green tea latte did.

After arriving home a few weeks ago, I ordered a supply of the essential green tea latte ingredient: matcha powder. Then, I learned how to make an iced green tea latte.

Matcha is made from green tea, but is processed in a very special way. It’s made from grinding up young, shade-grown green tea leaves into a fine, bright green powder. The only other ingredients you need are sugar, milk, a touch of hot water, and ice.

I hope this Iced Green Tea Latte recipe quenches your thirst like it did mine.

Here’s the Recipe!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoon matcha powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 10 ounces milk
  • 1 cup ice

Instructions

  • Place the matcha powder and sugar along with 1 tablespoon hot water in a mason jar or cocktail shaker.* Use a small whisk or spoon to combine the ingredients until dissolved.
  • Pour the milk into the container, followed by the ice. Secure the lid and shake until well-combined and frothy. Transfer to a serving container (or enjoy straight from the mason jar).

NOTES

*You can also make this in a regular glass, although shaking the drink makes it nice and frothy!
