Traced all the way back to the Tang Dynasty in China, matcha is a finely ground powder made of green tea leaves. The art of growing and processing the leaves to make matcha is an ancient and beloved one. Today, people are getting creative with how they enjoy their matcha, and we want to join in on that fun!

Matcha Lavender Latte

 

If you’ve been eyeing Starbucks’ new menu items and wondering how you could pull them off yourself, we’ve got you covered! For those who enjoy the taste of lavender, matcha proves a perfect pairing. Maybe it’s because they both feel so botanical, but these flavors work well together. This drink is delicious as a warm beverage or poured over ice! It’s one of those matcha drink recipes you’ll be making over and over—especially in the spring, which always seems to inspire a little lavender.

2 pumps lavender syrup

½ cup oat milk

Nutty Matcha Nightcap Shake

 

Bedtime mocktails have been trending on TikTok for a while, and for good reason! Treating your body to a strategic boost right before a night’s rest is a smart move.

In that case, we think the next of our matcha drink recipes, enjoyed shortly after your meal, could be the trick.

Meanwhile PlantYourDay keeps you feeling satisfied until you drift off and serves up the nutrition while your body rests.
