Matcha Lemonade: A Summer TeaTail

As the sun casts its golden rays upon us, there's nothing quite like an ice cold drink to beat the summer heat. My recent favorite has been Matcha Lemonade! 

The earthy undertones of Matcha pairs perfectly with the tanginess of freshly squeezed lemons, creating a drink that's as beautiful as it is delicious.

Whether you're hosting a summer party or lounging by the pool, this Matcha Lemonade is the perfect toast to summer. Simple to prepare and so tasty to indulge in, it's become my go-to drink. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!
