You now have a matcha shot! Pour it into a cup and top off with more water, or milk to make a latte. If making a hot drink, make sure the water and milk temperature stays below boiling (175 F or less) to prevent matcha from turning bitter. If making a cool drink just add more cool water or milk and ice! That's it!
