1/2 to 3/4 tsp of matcha
3/4 cup of milk / soy / your favorite
1 tsp condensed milk / your favorite sweetener
Whisk matcha to a paste using a tbsp of hot water. Froth milk if possible. Add condensed milk to the milk as it froths. Pour matcha in cup with ice, add the milk and top with your favorite spice e.g. nutmeg
Note: Indians typically 'froth' their milk by using two containers and letting the liquid pour down from a height from one to the other, doing this several times

1 tsp dried herbs or 1 tbsp fresh herbs to 1 cup of boiling water
Steep for 5 minutes
Try rosehips instead of lemon or honey; which will bleach or darken respectively
Consider making a larger batch instead of by the cup only. Use ingredients like:
Try hibiscus and raspberry leaves together; or lavender and mint.
Spearmint is good for a morning pick me up.
Camomile is good for bedtime.
The only thing stopping you is your imagination!
Some argue this is a sign of a high end tea leaf; that the minerals in the water are reacting with the polyphenols. However, this should happen several hours after steeping.
If it happens immediately you may have hard water or poor quality tea. Use a water softener or bottled water and shop at Steepers!
1.5 cups sugar
1oz black tea
Add sugar to a gallon pitcher. Add black tea in a teabag or infuser. Pour half a gallon of boiling water into the pitcher and steep for 5-10 minutes.
Remove and squeeze the teabags if used, stir to help dissolve the sugar.
Top with half a gallon of cold water
Optional: lemons, spearmint
Pour one quart of boiling water over 1oz teabag or infuser containing 1oz of tea
Steep for 3-5 minutes, or as recommended
Remove tea and add two quarts of cold water
Top with one quart of ice
Optional: fresh fruit, lemons, spearmint, honey
You may find the good quality teas do not need sugar; but if that's not the case add about 1/8 of a cup of sugar to 1 gallon of tea, or 1-2oz. of liquid sugar cane.
For a quart of tea, use 1/4 oz. of tea.
