Iced Matcha (Green Tea) Watermelon Recipe

Who knew matcha and watermelon would go so well together? MatchaBar in Brooklyn apparently. I ordered this drink on a visit and enjoyed it so much (and I recently have been on a blending binge with a newly acquired Vitamix) I wanted to try making it on my own.

Because the watermelon is sweet there’s no need to add any sugar.

(I love the look of the stacked layers of color.)

What I Used to Make This Iced Matcha Watermelon Tea

I prepared the matcha for this drink the traditional way with a sifter, whisk, and hot water. I made sure to cool the matcha a bit before adding to the iced watermelon.

    If Matcha Tea comes from Japan, does one have to worry about radiation contamination from the Fukushima Disaster? Has the radiation contaminated the soil and plants?
