"I've been making banana tea with the matcha and it is absolutely wonderful..."
When a loyal customer declares that making Mizuba Matcha with "banana water," was the best drink she's ever had...you better believe Mizuba set out to boil a banana in curiosity of this new take on a Matcha drink!
This quick, easy recipe results in a very sweet, but raw, low-sugar and healthy beverage that is incredibly soothing. The banana satisfyingly thickens the tea, and is said to promote natural serotonin and melatonin to help promote calmness.
Mizuba Matcha (best used with Culinary Organic, Daily, or House Organic grades)
1 ripe banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
Sweetener to taste (honey, stevia, agave syrup, or coconut sugar)
Cinnamon to taste
Salt to taste
Cut both ends off the banana.
Boil banana in water (~1.5 cups) for 10 minutes. It will smell delicious!
Transfer the banana to a blender, and blend until pureed. Measure out 1.5 tsp of Mizuba matcha powder into your tea bowl. Use the banana puree to make your Matcha.

Once frothy, add a pinch of cinnamon, salt, vanilla extract, and your sweeter of choice.
Whisk again, and enjoy!
"...It's literally the best drink I've ever had. Maybe you can try it out sometime."
