(Makes about 12 ice cubes)

1. Whisk together 2 tablespoons of Tenzo matcha and 1⁄2 cup hot water until all matcha clumps have dissolved.
2. Pour matcha mixture into ice cubes, about half way to leave room for the milk.
3. Pour milk over the matcha mixture.
4. Freeze for 8 hours or overnight, until solid.
**Note, there might be some remaining mixture or milk depending on the size of your ice cube mold**
Matcha ice cubes are a super simple solution to a nagging problem. They’re perfect for a pineapple spritzer or an iced strawberry matcha latte.
