Soothe and awaken with this comforting dairy-free milk and honey matcha drink. The creamy texture of coconut milk paired with grassy matcha tea is the perfect morning drink for spring.
If you’re looking to lighten up your morning drink for the warmer months, a switch to matcha may be just the thing for you. Its bright grassy notes evoke a sense of zen along with a jitter-free alertness. Best of all, it can be poured over ice for a refreshing beverage in the summertime.
L-theanine is an amino acid that is responsible for the calm alertness after sipping this drink and matcha has the most! This makes for sustained energy and focus without the jittery feeling you may experience with coffee. These tea crystals are unique because they blend effortlessly into the hot coconut milk, no steeping required; ideal for busy mornings.
Raw honey adds its signature floral, spice notes, and sweetness that balances the earthy matcha flavor. Honey that is raw hasn’t been heated, so its precious minerals and enzymes are preserved.
If you’ve found that you don’t like the flavor of matcha, you might be delighted by its flavor when mixed with milk. This gives it a more balanced creamy texture and sweetness, toning down its bitterness. A yin and yang balance.
