Matcha Kanten

We can hear the footsteps of autumn approaching in New York. We still crave something refreshing, but we also want a rich and robust flavor. How about making this matcha kanten at home?


Serves 4

1 package (4 grams) agar agar powder

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup matcha green tea (made with 1 cup water and 2 tsp matcha powder)


Step 1: Put water in pot. Sprinkle agar agar powder and stir well to dissolve.

Step 2: Turn on heat and bring mixture to boil while stirring.

Step 3: Once water is boiling, lower heat and keep boiling for another minute, then add sugar.

Step 4: When sugar is dissolved, turn off heat and add matcha. Let sit for about 10 minutes to cool.

Step 5: Pour matcha-agar mixture into your favorite mold.

Step 6: Cool in refrigerator for at least half an hour. When agar is set, it’s ready to be served.

Tip: You can make the flavor stronger by adding more matcha powder.

We used matcha from Ippodo Tea New York ( ).

We sourced the white plates from MTC Kitchen ( ).
