The instant cold brew
Step 1 - Make a matcha concentrate
The method of brewing cold or warm is quite similar except we use cold water when we make cold brew matcha. This means that the matcha powder never touches any heated water.
First we make a matcha concentrate in a bowl. The concentrate can be between 2-3 teaspoons of matcha powder that you pass through a strainer to get rid of any lumps that built up in the jar. Simply use a spoon to work it through the strainer into the bowl.
Step 2 - Add cold water
Add a little bit of water, around about 50ml into the bowl with matcha powder.
Step 3 - Whisk
Now, use your bamboo whisk to whisk together the water with the powder, make sure that you get rid of any possible lumps. Whisk hard and fast.
Step 4 - Add Concentrate
When your matcha concentrate is done, it should be a dark green liquid, you pour it into a jar with cold water. If you are having dinner guest and are serving cold brew matcha as a drink option, we recommend doing this step at the table so everyone can enjoy the beautiful movement in the water.
Step 5 - Stir
Make sure to stir it together at the end and it is ready to drink. Store it in the fridge with a lid for a couple of days.
