A matcha spritz is a refreshing matcha drink made with matcha powder, honey, lemon, and sparkling water. It’s the perfect alternative to a matcha latte and a wonderful drink to sip on a sunny day. If you’re looking for a healthy matcha drink recipe, this is for you!

This matcha spritz is healthy, contains no dairy or artificial sweeteners. It has all of the amazing health benefits of matcha without being overly sweet and filled with milk. Of course, we love our iced matcha latte recipe, but sometimes it’s nice to have something light and refreshing.

This recipe is perfect for a quick pick-me-up on a hot summer day. Here’s how you make it:

How to Make a Matcha Spritz

Before you start, there are a few items you’ll need. Once you purchase these, you’ll have them forever and can make as many matcha spritzers as you like!

Matcha Whisk – This bamboo whisk will froth the matcha. These whisks have more prongs than a standard baking whisk. They’re traditional when making matcha tea hot or cold.

Small Bowl – You’ll need a small bowl that will fit the matcha whisk.

Matcha Powder – Use a good quality matcha powder for the ultimate flavor.

Honey – We use honey because it’s a natural sweetener with its own health benefits. It goes great with tea and gives a subtle sweet flavor.

Lemon Juice – Lemon juice and matcha go well together and the lemon juice adds acidity to the spritz.

Club Soda Sparkling water gives the drink carbonation and bubbles.

Matcha Ice Cubes

If you’re feeling like you want to go above and beyond with this latte, make matcha ice cubes to go with it! These ice cubes are made with hot water and matcha powder. They add a fun twist to the drink. 

Simply add 1 tbsp matcha powder to 2 cups warm water. Whisk, then pour the matcha mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze overnight.

Benefits of Matcha

Matcha is filled with antioxidants and amino acids such as L-theanine. It’s been shown to boost energy while reducing the risk of a caffeine crash later. Furthermore, matcha can boost metabolism and is rich in fiber and chlorophyll. 

Sweeteners

We use honey for this matcha spritz recipe, however, there are other sweeteners to try, such as:

  • Vanilla Syrup
  • Agave Nectar
  • Stevia Drops

Also, enjoy an unsweetened matcha drink too! Leave out any additional sweetener to make it unsweetened.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Matcha?

Matcha is a type of green tea that’s crushed into a fine powder. It’s made using tea bushes that were grown in the shade and protected from harsh light, giving them a bright green color and lots of nutrients.

While regular green tea is made by infusing the water with the tea leaves and then taking them out, when you drink matcha, you’re drinking the actual leaves. 

What are the grades of matcha? 

There are two main grades of matcha: ceremonial and culinary. 

The ceremonial grade is the highest quality and tastes the best, not needing any sweeteners or extra ingredients. Culinary grade matcha isn’t as bright green and is best for mixing with milk or other liquids for delicious drinks (and it’s also less expensive!). 

Does Matcha have caffine?

Yes! An iced matcha latte won’t have as much caffeine in it as a cup of coffee, but it will give you a little caffeine boost. 

Because matcha is grown in the shade and you’re consuming the actual leaf, it has more caffeine in it than regular green tea powder. Exactly how much caffeine is in your drink will depend on the recipe and the specific type of matcha powder

  1. I’m curious… why would you whisk the honey with the matcha whisk? It seems like that would damage the bristles. I usually coat my glass with honey.

    Reply
    • You can do it either way. We usually pour it over a glass filled with ice, so the honey wouldn’t melt. Since we’re pouring a hot item into the ice it instantly gets cold. We also wouldn’t pour a hot drink into a glass without the ice as it might break the glass.
