Sipping a cup of steaming hot matcha is usually a warming experience, but shaken with almond milk over ice, like this, it transforms into a refreshing treat on a hot day.

A quick word of advice on the super green tea: Do you know if your matcha is high-quality? Since the drink became popular, many companies have been selling versions that are not nearly as pure as others on the market. But there are a few simple ways to evaluate brands, even if you don’t have deep details.

First, color: the more vibrant, dark green the matcha, the better it likely is. A dull gray-green is not acceptable. Second, taste: it’s a bitter, grassy drink but if the flavor is so bitter it makes you cringe, that’s likely the quality, not your taste buds.
