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.
