Iced Rose Matcha Latte

Making a matcha latte is a part of my daily morning routine. It is one of my favorite moments of the day. It not only tastes amazing but the process of making the tea is soothing to me and provides me with time to myself before I get started with my day. It is extremely easy to make at home. You can learn more about matcha through my Guide to Making Matcha at Home.

If you don’t know me, I LOVE pink, especially rose or pastel pink. Most of my clothes are either in pink or white. My apartment is also decorated in pink (surprising right?). With the weather getting warmer and warmer, I am ready for all the spring and summer recipes. So it is not a surprise that the first springy or summery drink I make involves matcha.

Nothing makes my morning brighter than making a colorful drink involving one of my favorite ingredients. So without further ado…

Here is an overview of this Iced Rose Matcha Latte!

Dried Rose Petals: You can purchase the dried rose petals online on Amazon or in one of your local spice stores.

Beet Powder: The beet powder provides the latte with a more vibrant pink color to it. If you do not have beet powder, you can omit it. You can also use a tiny drop of natural, vegan pink coloring.

Plant-Based Milk: I prefer to use unsweetened, plant-based milk so that I can control the sweetness level of the latte, but feel free to use any plant-based milk of choice!

Matcha Powder: Matcha is a powder made from grounded green leaves and the color and intensity of the flavor vary depending on the season the green leaves are harvested. There are 2 main types of matcha powder- culinary and ceremonial matcha. Culinary matcha is a lower variety of matcha and is a bit more affordable. It can also taste a little bitter sometimes. Ceremonial matcha is the highest grade of matcha and what I prefer to use the most as it is bolder in flavor and the powder is smoother in texture. They are also used primarily in tea ceremonies.

Rose Milk
6g (2 heaping tbsp) dried rose petals
⅛ tsp beet powder
60g (~¼ cup) hot water
125g (½ cup) unsweetened, plant-based milk of choice
Optional: 1-2 tbsp maple syrup

Matcha Tea
6g (2 tsp) ceremonial grade matcha powder
75g (5 tbsp) 180F water

Optional Topping(s)
Dried rose petals


  1. Prepare the Rose Milk. Place the dried rose petals into a tea strainer. Add in about ¼ cup hot water and allow the tea to steep for 8 minutes. Strain the tea.
  2. Add the strained tea, beet powder, plant-based milk and maple syrup (optional if you want a sweet drink) to a milk frother. Allow the milk to froth for about 30 seconds until the beet powder has dissolved and the milk is slightly creamy. You can also use a hand frother if you do not have a milk frother.
  3. Make the Matcha Tea. Place a sifter over a cup or bowl. Add in the matcha powder and sift the matcha powder to prevent clumping.
  4. Pour the water over the matcha.
  5. Using a whisk, blend the matcha powder into the hot water using a zig-zag motion until it is frothy. 
  6. Add some ice into a tall glass cup. Pour in the Rose Milk first followed by the Matcha. Optional to top the glass with some dried rose petals. Enjoy!
