Matcha is a finely powdered Japanese green tea that is full of nutrition. I loved Tasty Kitchen member Lindsay’s recipe for this healthy hot drink because it was a morning pick-me-up alternative to coffee and had a soothing lemon honey flavor for the throat.

You don’t need much to make this Hot Matcha Lemonade—just some honey, matcha powder, lemon juice and lemon zest. You’ll also need hot water.

Start by squeezing your lemon juice into a glass.

Then pour over some hot, hot water. Give it a vigorous stir and taste.

Add the honey if you’d like. You could also use agave or sugar.

Mix it all very well and taste again to see if the balance suits your taste.

I loved drinking this when my throat was a little scratchy or I needed a little extra energy. And if you’re not sure if matcha is for you, some grocery stores sell it in their bulk herb section, so you can buy a small amount and try it before committing to a large supply.

Thank you to Lindsay for this healthy brew, it is a new favorite drink of mine. Visit her website Eat 80/20 for other healthful treats!

Where do you get macha?

Looks delicious! Where’s a good place to buy matcha?

This looks like a great alternative to a morning coffee, especially with the spring and summer weather on it’s way.

What I am wondering is if everything dissolve with the boiling water or if you have bits of matcha? (I’m assuming the bits of zest wouldn’t). I am funny with my textures, especially when it comes to drinks.

Thanks!
