Want a quick and easy way to spruce up your soda or sparkling water? Try this matcha soda drink. It’s made with matcha tea powder and soda or sparkling water for a bubbly and refreshing drink. You only need a few minutes to create this drink and it’s absolutely perfect for warm days when you don’t feel like sipping hot matcha tea.
The trick to a good matcha drink is the matcha powder. Matcha powder is one of those ingredients that you should spend a little bit extra on and get a high quality brand because it can vary hugely in quality. Generally, the lighter-colored matcha powders are better quality and always choose an organic brand so you’re getting the cleanest matcha and the best taste.
