  • 500 ml water boiled and cooled to 175°F
  • 15 g granulated sugar
  • 6 g ceremonial matcha


  • Bring the water up to a boil and cool it to 175°F. Pour it into a heat-safe jar.
  • Add in the granulated sugar and ceremonial matcha.
  • Give the matcha and sugar a whisk until it dissolves evenly into the water.
  • Pour the matcha mixture into a shallow freezer-safe container.
  • Place the container into the freezer.
  • Freeze for 2 hours, and then give the matcha mixture a stir and scrape with a fork. (This produces ice crystals and gives the granita a light texture).
  • Every 30 minutes to 1 hour, scrape the mixture until completely frozen.
  • Fluff the granita with a fork before adding to a serving vessel.
