Matcha Cold Brew


  • 3-4 ice cubes, or 1 large ice cube
  • 3 g (2 tsp) ceremonial grade matcha, sifted 
  • 177 ml (6 oz) filtered water  
  • 474 ml (16 oz) capacity glass jar with lid, tumbler, or cocktail shaker
Ingredients for Matcha Cold Brew


Place ice cubes into jar, then sift matcha onto the ice cubes.

Add filtered water, tighten lid, and shake vigorously⁣⁣⁣⁣ (like a cocktail) for 30-60 seconds.

Yields: 8-10 oz; about 2 servings.


Since the ice cubes are heavier, I recommend putting them into the jar first, then add the matcha. This will help you avoid a matcha cloud or an accidental splash.

If you don’t have a mason jar, a tumbler, or cocktail shaker will work too!

Matcha cold brew is quick and easy to make—perfect for a hot summer day. This recipe is inspired by the first matcha cold brew I tried at Front Coffee + Café. They served it in a mason jar with a beautiful large hand-cut ice cube. This inspired me to buy a special clear ice tray to make my own giant ice cubes at home.
