Ice Green Tea

Green tea has so many health benefits. It is one of my favorite pick me up when I do not want coffee. This ice version very different then a traditional Ice tea.

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder (Find it online or an Asian grocery store)
12 oz warm water
1/2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup ice

I usually make this in a mason jar since its microwaveable, large enough for a big iced drink and with a lid you can shake to mix everything really well.

Start by placing honey in the jar and microwaving for 15 seconds. This will melt the honey so that it’s easier to mix. Next, add the green tea power and stir slightly. Finally, add 12oz warm water and stir or shake well. Finish with the ice and enjoy.
