The perfect matcha
February 2nd 2017
We don’t often feel like there is anything missing from the Cosy Tea range of teas and infusions. It’s a great collection that it has everything you need to offer a quintessentially British tea experience. All the teas are organic and the black teas are Fairtrade too. We have all the staples, some delicious green teas and some innovations like our brilliant Blueberry (which is berry nice indeed). In fact we there hasn’t been a new tea introduced since Decaf was added to the family back in 2011.
But never say never! Matcha has risen in popularity over the past year, partly owing to it’s fantastic green appearance and its health benefits. We decided we’re a bit partial to it as well and have launched Cosy Organic Matcha!
We adore Matcha for it’s versatility, there are so many ways to incorporate it into your diet. There has been a staggering increase of Matcha recipes both food and drink, and we have perfected some of our favourites for you to enjoy.
First up is a Cosy Matcha Latte – probably the most popular way to enjoy it, but also a useful base to create more elaborate beverages.
You can try adding different milks, such as almond, coconut or soya, to make a Vegan Matcha Latte. Most people like a hint of sweetness in their Matcha so experiment with your Sweetbird Syrups to create delicious drinks. Sweetbird French Vanilla and Cosy Organic Matcha are one of our favourite pairings for a taste of Matcha Latte heaven.
But it’s not just lattes you can expect to be serving up once Cosy Organic Matcha has been added to you menus. We adore it as an iced tea style drink, and the fresh grassy flavour makes for a thirst quenching summer drink. Preparing couldn’t be simpler:
Mix 1/2 teaspoon of Cosy Organic Matcha with 30ml of warm water and whisk very well. You want a smooth mixture with absolutely no lumps. Top with water and ice and serve. We love adding different flavour combinations and think 2 pumps of Sweetbird Mint Syrup in a Cosy Iced Matcha is going to be our drink of the summer.
There’s also Iced Matcha Lattes, Matcha Shots to add to your juices and smoothies and don’t even get us started on cooking with it! Keep an eye out for more inspiration on the Cosy Tea Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
