We’ve been drinking matcha tea for many years now, there are so many benefits to drinking matcha I will link an article here where you can read up on it. We both enjoy the cleaner taste of while still getting the caffeine in, instead of having a cup of coffee which we find can be a little too heavy at times. (We still do enjoy coffee too)
Matcha is just great hot, in a latte, or ice-cold it’s just another alternative when you aren’t in the coffee mood. We do not drink Matcha with any sugar in it, and that’s really key for us to not have the unnecessary sugar added to our day unlike with coffee where we prefer a little bit of sweetness added. We don’t really prefer it in our matcha.
We’ve tried out a few brands and have found only a couple that we really like to repurchase. One of our favorites has to be Ippodo Tea. But honestly, it can be quite costly if you drink it on a daily basis like we do. Another brand that we like that is Mizbuba Tea Co. we find them to be more affordable, but never lacking in quality if you’re interesting in purchasing I will link their website for you, you can also read up more on the company. We also wanted to share a discount code we found through their Instagram, which we weren’t sure if it would still be valid, so I emailed with the company and they said it should be good from here on out. For 10% off all orders use: InstaTeaTime
We always make sure to use this discount when we place an order extra savings is always nice. We are not affiliates by any means just really enjoy their matcha.
We’ve been enjoying matcha simply lately, we got this idea from LeefromAmerica’s Instagram check her out we love her content. This is a super simple, easy no need to boil hot water or whisking involved way to enjoy your matcha.
Directions to simple ice cold matcha:
- Take a jar that you have a lid to, we just used a good ol’ mason jar.
2. Place 1 tsp. of matcha powder in, then place a few ice cubes into jar (please put however much you like of both). Fill 2/3 jar with filtered water,
3. Lastly shake vigorously until you see no lumps of matcha, and boom it’s done and ready for your enjoyment. It should be nice and frothy at the top.
4. I then fill the rest of the jar up with more filtered water after shaking, (having a bit of space at the top helps it become nice and foamy.)
Please feel free to add stevia drops as we do once in while, or your favorite milk. We’ve been enjoying Oat milk a lot lately, but we also reach for the unsweetened macadamia nut milk also.
Thanks so much for reading hope you all give this a try and enjoy!
