Is it too hot to drink green tea in the summer? Try putting it on ice! This iced green tea recipe with lemon and matcha is delicious and refreshing.
Lemon is rich in Vitamin C and increases iron absorption. So, if you are worried about your iron level, it’s a good idea to add lemon juice to your green tea.
Matcha is a powdered green tea. It is high in fiber and antioxidants, and low in calories and sodium. It gives the iced tea a vibrant green color.
The calories in this drink mainly come from the sweetener. If you don’t use any sweetener, then you can have a low-calorie drink. If you like it sweet, honey is the best option since it is a non-processed, natural sugar.
This recipe calls for regular sugar, but you can replace it with honey. If you really like it sweet, there is another variation at the bottom that has more sugar.
So, let’s get started!
1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1/3 cup hot water
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup cold water
For a sweeter version of the iced lemon matcha, add 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon of matcha green tea powder.
Now Enjoy Your Iced Green Tea
Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy your iced lemon matcha!
