Traditionally associated with Japanese tea ceremonies, nowadays Matcha green tea has undergone a boom in popularity and its vivid green color and cleansing flavor are featured across a host of food and drink formats. We like to keep things simple though, and think that with its revitalizing taste, Matcha is perfect for a moment of pause to reset and reenergize. Its bright flavor also pairs well with ginger and mint, making it a great partner with a fresh salad or a healthy mid-afternoon snack.
GET THE BEST FROM YOUR BREW
Is there any prettier tea than the emerald green brightness of a freshly brewed Matcha? It’s as much of a treat for the eyes as it is for the taste buds. To get the full benefits of Matcha tea, we recommend letting it brew in slightly cooled boiled water for 1.5 – 2 minutes, this should give it a tinge of haziness and a fresh, bright flavor with a hint of characteristic umami. And it can be enjoyed hot or cold! Lipton’s Green Tea with Matcha is a simpler alternative to traditional Matcha preparation, which involves sifting Matcha powder and vigorously whisking it into hot water.
