I’m in love with Matcha, not just because of the antioxidants, or because it has two amino acids (theophylline and L-theanine) which have both an energizing and calming effect (which explains why Buddhist monks have been drinking Matcha for centuries!)

I really just love the taste of Matcha, more than I enjoy drinking a regular cup of green tea. Because it’s a fine powder form of the tea leaf, it quickly dissolves in anything you put it in, hot or cold, so if I want to drink it cold, I just mix it in – no heating required!

This is so easy, and takes just 1 minute to make. I combine sweetened vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk and Matcha powder – then shake, shake, shake! That’s it! You could even use unsweetened almond milk and a few drops of stevia.

For a quick afternoon pick me up, rather than reaching for a cup of coffee (which I prefer to drink in the mornings) I go for Matcha instead. It’s the perfect pick me up without the jitters.

  1. Wonderful! Quick and easy, delish!  I even like it with the Almond milk with banana! 

  2. A PS to my comment just written – I see that that some others note that they do use the ceremonial grade. Is this higher in antioxidants or other benefits, I wonder?

  3. I have found organic matcha from Japan at a local Asian market. Also at a natural foods store, though the Asian market is cheaper. I buy the "for eating or drinking" rather than ceremonial grade. Sometimes I make a cup of green tea then stir in matcha for a double-green drink. But I'm looking forward to trying these matcha shots!

  4. Wow, I use matcha for everything, but never considered shots. Love this idea! My personal favourite matcha which is ceremonial grade AKA the most benefits is from Tease Tea. Called A matcha made in heaven <3 A little goes a looong way. http://teasetea.com/products/classic-tease-a-matcha-made-in-heaven.

    • I also love tease tea’s matcha green tea as well! It’s super good quality and affordable from what I’ve seen. Cheaper than amazon.

  5. I found the best matcha at www.midorimatchacompany.com
    Its organic and ceremonial grade and very delicious!

  6. i drink Steeped Tea Matcha. Love it!
