Our Favourite Summer Drink: Magic Matcha Lemonade
Summer is here!
And there’s no better way to cool down with a refreshing and energizing matcha lemonade made with butterfly pea tea. Our Magic Matcha Lemonade will not only help keep you cool during the summer months, but will give you an extra kick of antioxidants to keep your skin healthy and glowing.
This amazing duo of matcha and butterfly pea tea help reduce inflammation and control the redness and dryness you may experience from long periods of sun exposure. Packed with vitamins, minerals, EGCG and antioxidants, these two powerhouse teas will help maintain skin elasticity while brightening and evening your skin tone.
What You Need
Butterfly Pea Tea, brewed and cooled
Citrus ice (I use orange and lemon juice)
1 tsp. of Bonsai Cha Kogane matcha
1 oz. of water
Your Bonsai Cha Matcha Maker
2 tsp. of sugar (or to taste)
How to Make It
Step 1: Make your Citrus Ice. Fill an ice cube tray with lemon and orange juice, freeze, then top with water and freeze until firm.
Step 2: Brew your butterfly pea tea as directed and chill.
Step 3: Once your butterfly pea tea is chilled, fill a glass with your Citrus ice, then pour over the chilled butterfly pea tea.
Step 4: This is where the magic happens...! Squeeze your lemon over top and watch the colour change from blue to purple! If you like your lemonade sweet, stir in 2 tsp. of sugar or to taste.
Step 5: Add 1 oz. of water to your Bonsai Cha matcha maker and 1 scoop of Kogane matcha. Press twice to blend on the cold setting. Pour over top and enjoy!
