The key to making an iced matcha latte without a whisk is SIFTING your matcha first. This where we finally found a use for the tea ball. You can use any tea strainer or a flour whisk to sift matcha. Static electricity causes matcha powder to clump. Sifting will make sure that your latte is clump-free. No one likes a clump of powder in their drink.

What you'll need:
Add ice to your mason jar and fill with almond milk. Sweeten as desired and add 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. Sift a teaspoon of matcha into the jar (or sift it into a separate bowl first if that's easier). Put the lid on your jar and shake for 15-20 seconds or until all the matcha is "dissolved". Technically, that matcha is suspended in the liquid, so you'll likely have to stir it up periodically as you drink it.
Got a whisk and a little more time? You can whisk the matcha in 2 oz of 80 degree (175°F) water, fill jar with ice and almond milk, sweetener and vanilla extract and shake!
