  • 2-3 tablespoon boiled hot water cooled to 80°C/176°F
  • 2 scoops vanilla or matcha ice cream
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ceremonial matcha sifted


  • Boil water and let it cool to 80°C/176°F.
  • Add the sifted matcha powder to a small bowl and carefully pour the water over it. (Add a little water at a time so you can control how thick you want the koicha).
  • Whisk the mixture with a bamboo chasen until you obtain a pourable, but thick matcha.
  • Add scoops of ice cream into a serving vessel.
  • Pour the matcha (koicha) over top of the ice cream and serve immediately.
