Recipe: Matcha Green Tea Smoothie

Posted in: recipe, on 12 Sep 2016

Few people know more about tea than Lalani & Co, and we're thrilled that they have shared this brilliantly simple matcha tea smoothie recipe with us. Their teas are harvested from carefully-selected, family-run gardens, meaning every batch is fully traceable to its origin.

Did you know...?

Matcha tea comes from the same plant as other types of tea, camellia sinensis, but the plants that are grown for harvesting matcha are shaded from the sunlight for three weeks before harvest. This changes the nutrient balance in the leaf, producing more of the amino acid L-theanine which is believed to be beneficial for mood and metabolism. After harvesting, the leaves are dried and then ground into a powder using a metal or stone mill.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp Japanese Matcha Grade III
  • 1 banana
  • 200ml almond milk
  • 3 dates (use fresh dates to keep the green colour of the smoothie)
  • 25g oats

Key info

  • Rating: Easy
  • Serves: 1

Instructions

1 Place all ingredients in a blender.

2 Blend until smooth — that's it!

Lalani & Co finds, collects and ages incredible single-batch teas from craft family-run gardens; and makes fine tea infusionware here in Britain.
