Iced Matcha (Green Tea) Watermelon Recipe

Matcha (green tea powder) pairs well with any sweet fruit so it’s no surprise it tastes delicious when combined with watermelon.

It’s easy to make a layered drink using watermelon since it’s already naturally sweet so there’s no need to add any sugar to create the layers.

Sugar is the key to creating the layered effect. Whatever layer has the most sugar goes to the bottom of the cup. 

With that in mind, the watermelon layer is added first to the cup, followed by the unsweetened matcha.
