This vibrant CBD matcha latte is the perfect drink to get you invigorated on chilly mornings and awakened from winter hibernation. It's a lower-caffeine option for anyone looking for a slightly more mellow drink than coffee. It's made with our Hemp- Infused Honey which (besides the wellness boost of CBD) lends sweetness and an herbal flavor to balance the vibrant, grassy taste of matcha.
Haven't tried matcha yet?
It's made from the same tea that's brewed into green tea, but harvested when it's young and most flavorful, then ground into a powder. Instead of steeping the tea leaves in water and discarding as with regular tea, matcha is simply blended with liquid and consumed whole.
We always opt for organic matcha, and think ceremonial grade is the most flavorful, if you have access to it. Many of the other matcha grades, such as culinary or latte grade are made with lower quality leaves that don't have the same vibrant green color or fresh, pleasant flavor as ceremonial grade matcha.
Matcha is also high in antioxidants, and is not only lower in caffeine than coffee, but has a special compound called L-theanine that actually alters the effects of caffeine, helping the body to process it more slowly. We like to think of matcha as a gentle pick-me-up - one that will still give you the brain-boost of coffee but in a much gentler way.
Our favorite CBD matcha latte is quick and easy to make, and made with just a few simple ingredients: quality matcha, our hemp-infused honey, hot water, and your milk of choice.
Pour yourself a mugful and enjoy this simple rejuvenating drink anytime!
Vibrant & Restorative CBD Matcha Latte
A simple, invigorating, antioxidant-rich drink made with our hemp-infused honey. We love having this as a healthful alternative to coffee in the morning, or as an afternoon treat that won't keep you up all night!
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (or any milk you love!)
- 1 teaspoon matcha (preferably organic + cermonial grade)
- 1 teaspoon Luce Farm Hemp-Infused Honey (10mg CBD)
- Heat water until just boiling. Add to a blender with coconut milk, matcha, and hemp honey. Blend for 10 seconds, or until frothy. Pour into a large mug and enjoy!
No blender? This latte can easily be made by hand. Simply heat water until barely boiling, and pour a few tablespoons of it into a mug with the matcha powder. Stir/whisk to remove any lumps, then top with remaining water and stir in honey. Warm the milk if you'd like, then froth with a whisk, by pumping in a french press for 30 seconds, with a hand-held frother, or even by shaking in a sealed mason jar. Top matcha with frothed milk and enjoy!
