Matcha powder, or powdered green tea, has a unique taste. We’ve heard it described as sweetly vegetal and earthy, but these descriptions don’t really pinpoint the distinctive taste of matcha. The best way to try it is in our Green Tea Smoothie. It is completely refreshing, relatively healthful, and tastes damn good on a hot summer day. Matcha powder is an acquired taste for some. If you’re a beginning matcha drinker, you may want to start with 1 to 2 teaspoons, then taste and add more matcha as desired.
Put the yogurt, soy milk, honeydew melon, and matcha powder in a powerful blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into two chilled glasses and serve immediately.
