Homemade Iced Matcha Latte! Grab your mate who’s a total matcha fan and get making!!
This is a new found favourite of mine! I only started making iced matcha green tea lattes recently to take with me at 5:00am to watch the sunrise on the beach. I would see others around me enjoying their freshly brewed cups of coffee whilst wandering along the sand, and really wanted something, too (but something with less caffeine). Plus, it’s a great way to save some dollars from ordering at your coffee shop! Just DIY it instead.
Matcha powder is made up of green tea leaves that have been ground. Instead of brewing a cup of tea with tea leaves, this ground up tea powder dissolves in warm/hot water, delivering a hit of antioxidants to your body! Matcha contains less caffeine than coffee, so it’s much better for the body and adrenals. If I ever have the privilege of visiting, Japan, I’m visiting one of the tea houses there, and buying some of their beautiful matcha green tea powder to take home!
