Try making this tea as a replacement for your morning coffee — it won’t disappoint! You might not ever want to start your day without this healing blend of matcha, turmeric and cinnamon spice. Organic soy milk will be creamiest, but any plant-based milk will do. If you’re wondering about matcha tea, it gives you energy like coffee, but instead of jitters it offers you a calm sense of awareness and steady energy. Give it a try!
Heat the water and milk in a small saucepan on the stove top. Heat until you see steam, but don’t let it boil (this curdles the milk and is not good for matcha’s nutrients).
While the water and milk mixture is heating, combine the turmeric powder, ground cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, and ground pepper in a small bowl.
Once the water and milk mixture is hot, turn off the burner and add the matcha and the spice mixture to the pan.
Whisk well until all of the powder is dissolved. Matcha can get clumpy so it may take a vigorous whisk for a minute or two. Alternatively, you could use an immersion blender.
Sip, relax and enjoy. This would be a great time for a mindful tea meditation!
