- 4. Add in some cold water to the pot and mix until it gets thick.
- 5. Pour out an equal amount into 6 cups with water and put into a refrigerator to harden.
- 6. After hardening, add some whipped cream to the top. Finally, sprinkle some matcha powder on top of that to finish.
Notes from the chef
Matcha has a certain thickness and weight to it.
Be sure to do step #4 because if you do step #3 and leave it as it is, it will come out as two different layers.
