Tea DIY: Matcha Morning Wake Up

 
 

I’ve seen a few tea retailers post about mixing matcha with fruit juice lately. I was skeptical but I had a morning off of work so I thought that I would give it a try. The result was actually surprisingly tasty. The matcha smooths out the citrus bite of the juice. It’s a great way to get a healthy dose of Vitamin C as well as antioxidants. I don’t drink coffee so this will be my go-to pick me up on days when I am feeling really groggy.

Ingredients

1 teaspoon of matcha
1 cup of orange juice

Mix together thoroughly and enjoy!

I usually take step by step pictures for tutorials but this one is pretty fool proof. I used my milk frother to make this because it gets everything blended smoothly without clumps. If you don’t have one you can just as easily use a whisk, blender or other mixing contraptions. In a pinch, shake them together in a mason jar with the lid tightly closed.

If you aren’t a fan of orange juice, just substitute apple juice or whatever your favorite might be. I used Think Matcha Ceremonial Matcha because that was what I had on hand but any brand will do. You could even go for some of the cheaper stuff since you are blending it.
