¼CupWhite granulated sugarSubstitute: other sweeteners such as brown sugar, honey, maple syrup etc
Add the sugar and matcha powder to the pot. Whisk to make sure the 2 powders are well-mixed.
Add the water, and switch on the heat. Simmer for 5-10 minutes or till at the desired consistency, whisking every now and then to make sure the sugar doesn't burn at the bottom of the pot.
Once all the sugar and matcha are dissolved, and you're happy with the texture, switch off the fire and allow to coo. (Note: simple syrup has a watery consistency. For something thicker, double the sugar to make matcha rich syrup.)
Once cooled, store in an air-tight container in the fridge. Ideally, use within 3 days or the taste will start to change.
Note: if you use brown sugar to make this matcha green tea syrup, your syrup will be a brownish- green.
