Iced Matcha (Green Tea) Watermelon

Iced Matcha (Green Tea) Watermelon Recipe

Who knew matcha and watermelon would go so well together? MatchaBar in Brooklyn apparently. I ordered this drink on a visit and enjoyed it so much (and I recently have been on a blending binge with a newly acquired Vitamix) I wanted to try making it on my own. Because the watermelon is sweet there’s no need to add any sugar.

(I love the look of the stacked layers of color.)

Iced Matcha (Green Tea) Watermelon Recipe

You can prepare the matcha for this drink the traditional way with a sifter, whisk, and hot water, but because I’m super lazy and the matcha is cooking grade, I used cold water and power whipped it using a milk frother.

When you’re mixing matcha with other ingredients, no need to get the far more expensive ceremonial grade — get cooking or culinary grade. Great ceremonial grade matcha has a very smooth subtle flavor that will completely get lost when diluted with other flavors. Also, I would never power whisk ceremonial grade. Blasphemy!

    If Matcha Tea comes from Japan, does one have to worry about radiation contamination from the Fukushima Disaster? Has the radiation contaminated the soil and plants?
