This iced Matcha tea lemonade is so refreshing. Especially, with the hot weather starting up.
A few days back I headed out to my local Target and saw a Starbucks ad for Matcha tea everything they offer now. I was so intrigued. I’ve tried Matcha a couple of years back and honestly forgot about it. I’m so glad I bumped into that Starbucks ad or I would’ve never had revisited drinking it again. I love creating a big batch and popping it in a mason jar with a lid and straw. Plus I feel fancy.

All about Matcha
They have different versions of Matcha you can consume like tea bags but I really enjoy using the powdered version. That way you can put it in your water like tea, your smoothies or even bake with it.
They also have went all the way with using beauty products like face masks, moisturizers, cleansers and body scrubs which also have Matcha. I haven’t tried these but I have linked a bunch of brands I trust that offer Matcha products. You know how I am about skincare.
What is Matcha?
Matcha is a form of green tea. The leaves are made into a powder that’s far stronger than regular tea, so a little can go a long way. Many say it is sweeter than green tea but it has this grass type smell. It is filled with the antioxidants that is healthy and great for your body. It can help with your dental health, lower blood pressure and help with inflammation. Via WebMD
