I know that matcha has been a major “thing.” I typically don’t get involved in healthy trends (acai bowls, spirulina, etc.) but when the folks at Your Tea sent me some of their fine matcha tea, I found myself curious. Granted, it was a 110F summer day when it arrived, so I opted for iced over hot tea.
There are a few helpful pointers to keep in mind when making this antioxidant powerhouse tea concoction iced. Get the low down in this quick how-to video:
Iced Matcha Tea
When making this iced, it’s important to stir the matcha powder with a little splash of water to get the party going. If you try to dump all of the water in at once, you’ll end up with unappetizing matcha clumps. Not cute.
I’ve been drinking this matcha daily since getting it in the mail and have noticed it helps curb my afternoon energy slump. Gotta love something that keeps the energy going!
I’m glad I jumped into this healthy food trend. I guess sometimes trends are legit and happen for a good reason.
