Ohhhhh my. I honestly thought I couldn’t beat the milky perfection that is my daily matcha latte , but then I ran out of milk and was still eager for my matcha fix, so I set out on a journey to make a matcha ‘americano’ aka matcha with more water instead of milk.
The idea of a plain old watery matcha didn’t really get me going TBH. I decided some lemon would be nice, then in true form, I decided that wasn’t enough so I had to add in some fancy rosewater. I add a touch of raw honey to balance out the tartness of the lemon and the earthiness of the matcha. After pouring this deep green elixir over ice and taking a sip- I knew I had created something that would be in my beverage rotation for a long long time.
