Matcha Green Tea Lemonade Recipe

green tea lemonade

This Matcha Green Tea Lemonade is both refreshing and energizing.  If you have never heard of matcha before it is high quality green tea leaves which have been ground into a fine powder.  Green tea in this form maximizes the beneficial healthful effects of green tea & it can be quite energizing.  So if you have a thirst to quench and need a bit of pep in your step, brew up a batch.

Good thing I have a pitcher on hand.  I have a lawn that is starting to resemble a jungle.  A glass of this should help me power through it.

    I tried this today. It’s so good. In one glass I added YL Slique Essence really nice flavor addition. I don’t do sugar in my drinks so I added Stevia instead. Very good recipe. Thanks.
