  • Matcha layer: Whisk the matcha with the boiling water with a matcha tea whisk. 
  • Layer the ingredients in this order: 1/4 cup of the strawberry sauce, grass jelly, sweet milk, ice & matcha. 


  • Microwave Strawberry Sauce: Microwave the strawberries in a deep bowl for 30 seconds. Mash with a fork. Add in 1 tbsp maple syrup and microwave for another 30 seconds or until syrup-y.
  • Substitute grass jelly with tapioca pears if desired.
