2 Teaspoons Matcha (ceremonial or latte grade)

1/2 Cup Water


1/3 Cup Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed

1/3 Cup Water

2.5 Tablespoons Simple Syrup*




The easiest way to prepare the matcha is to put it in a jar with the 1/2 cup water, seal the jar with its lid, then shake vigorously until it is well mixed.


Add the lemon juice, water, and simple syrup together, then stir to combine.

Matcha Lemonade

Add ice to a large cup (I use this 16oz tumbler). Pour the lemonade in.

Next, pour in the matcha. If you want to layer it, pour it over really slowly.

Swirl cup around to mix before drinking. Enjoy immediately.


*Want to make a small amount of simple syrup just for this recipe? Add 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water to a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Store any excess in a sealed container. (This should make enough simple syrup to make two of these drinks).
