Matcha is one of my favourite teas to have daily, and if you’ve been following this blog for a while you may have guessed that too. I find the art of preparing matcha quite soothing, and so I enjoy matcha the traditional way most often.

Enter this speedy way to make cold brew matcha. Follow the tutorial below, and you’ll be shaking it up in 30 seconds or less with no fancy tools required.

You can master the way to whisk with your wrist, but there are other factors to consider if you are asking “why is the matcha not frothing well?“ When done correctly your frothed bowl of matcha is picture worthy and more importantly, extra delicious!
