A combination of iced matcha and Mizu-yokan is perfect!
I sometimes drink iced matcha in summer.
I will explain how to make iced matcha.
It’s easy to make.
At first, use a chasyaku to scoop up about 2 grams of matcha powder, and put it in a tea bowl.
Chasyaku is a small spoon used for matcha.
Next, put a little bit of boiling water in the tea bowl, and mix it with a chasen (bamboo whisk).
After that, add some cold water to the tea bowl, and mix it with a chasen.
Finally, put some ice in the matcha.
I like drinking iced matcha in the afternoon on a clear day in the middle of summer.
Japanese confectionery is indispensable for enjoying iced matcha.
I think that Mizu-yokan really goes well iced matcha.
Mizu-yokan is a type of Yokan (sweet jelly made with Azuki beans).
Mizu-yokan has more moisture than Yokan. Its fresh taste is good for the hot summer.
So a combination of iced matcha and Mizu-yokan is perfect.
Azuki beans work for health and beauty.
Azuki beans are effective for recovery from fatigue and making the skin beautiful thanks to their rich vitamin B and polyphenol content.
The summer heat sometimes makes me lose my appetite.
Iced matcha and Mizu-yokan work well for me in such a case.
