Needing a little more energy? Then Matcha is the tea for you! Matcha tea is high in caffeine, however it is released into the bloodstream slowly as the catechins are broken down giving a sustained energy rather than short bursts of energy followed by dropped energy.

How to Make Cold Matcha in your Libre Tea glass

matcha steps

Step 1: 1 tsp on matcha on filter

Step 2: use spoon to move matcha around and sieve through the filter

Step 3: pour liquid – water, juice, milk – then shake up and down and side to side and turn upside down to get all matcha off the bottom and give one last shake

Step 4: drink and enjoy and a healthy perk-up treat mid afternoon or morning

Temperature matters when making matcha. Heat brings out the bitter flavors in matcha. Where cold water will bring out the sweetness and the rich creamy feel unique to matcha.

If you are using water instead of Almond or Coconut Milk the ideal temperature is 65 – 85 degrees Celsius (150 – 180 degrees Fahrenheit).

    I’ve only tried it with water so water would be my favorite thus far. I’m gonna have to try with milk.

    I discovered matcha through Starbucks and their yummy Green Tea Frappuccinos. I haven’t actually had it as a hot tea.

    Didn’t even think there were options other than water and I’ve only had it hot. Time to experiment.

    I use water but then I would add almond milk or soy milk to the matcha. I like a little sweetener also.

    Matcha made with cold almond milk tastes like a smooth exotic milkshake. Gets me going when I have a rough day ahead of me.

    Tasty in a blueberry smoothie, although I usually just use water. Will try coconut milk more often!

    I’ve only tried it with water. I’m sure it would taste good with other things but I prefer to stick to water for health reasons.

    I have only tried water so far although I am a keen juicer. I shall have to look into combining them both.

    Somehow I must have been under a rock about matcha. And to do it cold! I’m really interested. Would probably just use water mostly.

    i love to make green tea frappuccinos at home using matcha, skim milk and some vanilla bean torani syrup- just add ice and whip it up in the blender 🙂

    Haven’t tried it with anything but water but now I am wondering what I’m missing out on.

    Matcha sounds perfect for long studying sessions. I would probably make it hot for a more bitter taste.

    I just started drinking it with water but now I’ll try different variations that I just learned.

    I’ve heard so much about the health benefits of matcha, but have yet to try it; I’m sure I would like it with almond milk as I use almond milk quite often and really like it.

    I haven’t tried the cold method, but I would definitely use water. Milk in tea does not allow absorption of all the beneficial antioxidants.
