Matcha Drink Recipes

When some people first think of Matcha, the thing that immediately comes to their mind is drinking matcha green tea in the traditional way; hot. We love enjoying a hot cup of matcha, but there are countless ways to enjoy matcha green tea. Here are a few of our favorite matcha green tea drink recipes.

Hot Matcha Green Tea Latte

¾ cup of milk(may use any milk alternative)

¼ cup boiling water

1 teaspoon Nutra Matcha Green Tea powder

1 teaspoon honey

Place matcha powder in the bottom of your mug. Pour boiling water over it, whisking slowly as you add the water. Tip your mug and add the milk. Sweeten to taste.

Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte

12 ounces milk of choice

1 ½ teaspoons Nutra Matcha Green Tea powder

2 teaspoons honey

Splash of vanilla extract

Matcha Ginger Cocktail

2 ounces vodka

2 teaspoons honey

¼ teaspoon Nutra Matcha Green Tea powder

8 ounces ginger kombucha

Lime wedges

Fresh mint

Add first three ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Shake until the matcha is dissolved - about 30 seconds. Add ice, and then shake for about 20 more seconds. Fill two glasses with ice, and pour into the glasses. Fill the rest of the glasses with kombucha, squeeze 1 lime wedge into each drink, and add mint leaves. For the best flavor, let the drink sit for 1-2 minutes before drinking.
