One really refreshing, delicious summer drink we love is Matcha Mint Iced Tea.

We all know that matcha is loaded with nutrients and that it tastes great. You mightn’t be aware that mint is also full of goodness. Mint is a herb that people have used for hundreds of years as a medicinal plant. Mint is used:

  • As an appetiser to promote digestion
  • Soothes indigestion and inflammation
  • Alleviates headache and nausea
  • Relieves acne
  • Clears congestion in the nose and chest and prevents allergies
  • Is a natural stimulant that promotes alertness

Mint is super easy to grow for yourself in a pot in a sunny spot, on a windowsill or on a patio. The taste and aroma of fresh mint cut from the plant is amazing.

Mint goes really well with matcha – for a refreshing summer boost, try this recipe for Matcha Mint Iced Tea...

Per Serve:

  • 1 cup of filtered water
  • 1 cup of crushed ice
  • ½ lime, cut into slices
  • 1 teaspoon of matcha powder
  • A small bunch of mint leaves

Shake the water and matcha in a cocktail shaker or drink bottle really well until the matcha is fully dissolved. Add the ice, some lime juice, and mint leaves, and shake some more. To get the most out of the mint, tear a few of the mint leaves before adding them – this releases the flavour. Pour it all into a tall glass and add some lime slices. If you want to, you can add a little honey for sweetness.

If you’re more into a milky iced drink, you can easily substitute icy cold soy or almond milk for half of the water in this recipe. Make sure you dissolve the matcha in the water first before adding the milk, and shake it all really well before adding the ice and mint.
