 How to make strawberry matcha smashed iced tea: 

This recipe is easy to make and only requires a few minutes of prep work. While it tastes and looks decadent, it requires minimal effort. Our kind of recipe! 

Start by roughly chopping your strawberries. You’ll be blending these later, so there's no need to spend too much time here. If you don’t have an immersion blender, chop your strawberries finer.

Next, add strawberries to a glass and top with a bit of cold water. Using an immersion blender, you’ll blend the strawberries to your preference. You can fully puree them until you have more of a strawberry syrup or keep them in small chunks. You decide what you like best!

This strawberry matcha smashed ice tea is best made with a high-quality matcha green tea powder to ensure a bright, vibrant color and rich flavor. We recommend opting for a ceremonial-grade powder such as our Original Ceremonial Grade Matcha or Daily Ritual Ceremonial Matcha. You can also experiment with using one of our flavored matcha powders- we think our mango matcha powder would be delicious in this iced tea recipe!

Fresh, ripe strawberries will provide the best taste and natural sweetness. however, you can also use frozen strawberries if desired. Just be sure to thaw before using.
