Green tea once of the best drinks you can drink for your health. If have so many amazing health properties. Here is a great website with more info about the endless health benefits. Not only is it super good for you but it is extremely delicious.

Since writing this post, Starbucks have finally brought their green tea latte over to the UK. When travelling, this is my favourite drink both iced and hot. Even though you can now buy it here (wahooo!) not everyone lives near a Starbucks, including me so I have managed to create my own Starbucksesque iced latte. Enjoy!

  • 2 heaped tsp Matcha Powder depending on taste
  • 1tbsp hot water

  • 4 or 5 ice cubes

*If you do not own a blender or smoothie maker, you can simply stir all the ingredients together in a measuring jug but I'd recommend only using a total of 3 ice cubes so that it isn't too watered down.
