ALMOST EFFORTLESS - MATCHA ICED TEA
It’s Iced Tea day, so we thought we’d ditch the lemons and start a new tradition this summer with Iced Matcha Tea instead! It’s the perfect summer indulgence for those looking to add a little pep, without the usual jitters iced coffees may bring and it’s a great way to introduce matcha into your life if you haven’t fallen for it already.
For those who already love and carry our matcha, you’re in for a real treat because most can be used for this recipe. We do recommend our Ceremonial Matcha though, because let’s face it, this matcha begs to be sipped straight and therefore can’t be beat (especially as a summer treat!).
Our Ceremonial Matcha is grown in in Uji, Kyoto prefecture, and matcha from this area is known to not be bitter. Organic, shade-grown, and authentically stone ground, this high-grade matcha is rich and creamy in flavor and she’s full-bodied with a sweet finish. Our Ceremonial Matcha is sure to keep you coming back time and time again (we always do!), which is why we’re so excited about making this a summer staple!
If you love matcha like we do then you probably find yourself buying matcha every month. For this reason, we also offer a Matcha Refill Subscription to help you save a few dollars each month. Our Matcha Refill Subscription is open to Canadian addresses only at this time, and only requires that you choose ‘Subscribe’ not ‘Add to Cart’ when completing your online order.
OK – it’s time for some Matcha Iced Tea – and (thank goodness) the recipe couldn’t be easier.
Huge thank you to Elizabeth from Babble for this amazing Matcha Iced Tea Recipe!
