Like love green tea.
It's energizing. It's soothing. It's delicious! Green tea is my favorite warm beverage by a long margin and no other type of tea has yet to come in even spitting distance of my love for green tea.
So when there's an Indian summer, or when the heating comes on too high too early, and I don't want to be warmed even more by a warm beverage, matcha is great. It's energizing and delicious, just like green tea, but can be prepared just as well with cold water as with hot!
I recently discovered Red Leaf Tea and they're my new tea obsession. Not only is their matcha high quality, but it's available in all sorts of absolutely delectable flavors!
I tried three really scrumptious flavors. My favorite to drink by itself was the Caramel Matcha, though the Belgian Chocolate was great, too.
But the Cheesecake Matcha?
Oh my gosh, it made SUCH a mean green smoothie.
Like addictively delicious, sweet, scrumptious, way too good for reality, mean green smoothie.
Just blend a teaspoon of Red Leaf Tea Cheesecake Matcha with a very ripe banana, one cup of vanilla soy milk, a scant tablespoon of agave nectar, and a few ice cubes. That's it!
It's so good.
