Place the matcha powder in a bowl. Preferably use a matcha bowl, but any regular bowl is fine too.
Add the hot water and whisk the matcha powder in a “W” pattern (sort of a zig-zag, back and forth motion) to dissolve the matcha powder. Set aside.
You can also froth the milk, although this is completely optional. To do this, place the milk in a tall glass or a separate jug. Using a frothing wand, froth the milk. Alternatively, you can shake the milk in a sealed bottle to create froth.
Pour the milk into the glass and add as much ice as you prefer. Make sure to leave enough room for the matcha boba pearls (if using).
Pour the dissolved matcha over the ice to create the matcha swirls in the milk.
Serve with a straw. Mix well before drinking.
If you want to sweeten your iced matcha latte, add the sweetener of your choice (I like maple syrup), and stir it into the milk to dissolve. You can also add a few drops of vanilla extract for some vanilla flavor in the drink.
If you’re using boba pearls, add them to the bottom of the glass with a little milk, and stir to keep the pearls separated. Then add the rest of the milk, ice, and matcha. If the boba pearls were stored in a sweet syrup, then you shouldn’t need to add any extra sweetener.
Note on the milk
If you're looking to froth the milk and want to use a plant-based milk, then use a barista grade plant-based milk. Otherwise any type of regular milk will work.If you're not frothing the milk, you can use any milk you like to drink.
