If you see culinary grade and ceremonial grade, choose the less expensive culinary grade for this recipe.
You'll also need unsweetened non-dairy milk.
My favorite is organic soy, but you can choose whatever variety you like, such as almond, coconut, oat, cashew, or macadamia.
I experimented with several different sweeteners and found that Torani syrups are my favorite for making Iced Matcha Green Tea Lattes.
While I don't like my tea to be very sweet, I find a little bit of sweetener makes the matcha taste even better.
My favorites are Torani Vanilla Syrup and Torani Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup.
The classic syrup only adds 40 calories to your drink and is made with real ingredients like pure cane sugar and natural flavors.
But if you're watching your sugar or calorie intake, the Sugar Free variety doesn't add any calories!

I've always liked peach flavored tea, so I picked up a bottle of Torani Peach Syrup to enjoy in an Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte for something a little different.
Other flavors that go well with green tea include Coconut, Mango, and Passion Fruit.
I love being able to make different variations of my favorite iced drink.
And the syrups are perfect for making other beverages such as Vegan Boba Tea.
Since matcha requires whisking to avoid clumps in your tea, I found the easiest way to make an Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte is in your blender.
You'll get a little foam on top like you would if you whisked it by hand, and all the ingredients will be well combined.
All you need to do is add the ingredients and blend.
It's so fast and easy!
Plus clean up is simple, too.
Matcha green tea has many health benefits.
Like other green teas, matcha contains less caffeine that coffee or black tea.
