Green Goddess Matcha Iced Tea Recipe
1 tsp Firepot Ceremonial Grade matcha
1 oz lemon juice
½ oz rose simple syrup (see recipe below)
20 mg Yuyo AM formula CBD oil
1 oz still water
8 oz cold sparkling water
In a large glass, start by combining ceremonial matcha powder, lemon juice, and a rose simple syrup. Alternatively, you can use a couple of drops of rose water with 1/2 oz of maple syrup. Then add your CBD oil drops. I add about 20mg of the Yuyo AM Formula, and about 1 ounce (or a splash) of purified still water. Stir to combine.
Next, I add 8 ounces of cold sparkling water to the mix (you can even use different citrus flavors such as Spindrift Grapefruit or Lemon) Then pour over ice or add ice to your mixing glass and drink up!
Rose Simple Syrup Recipe
1. Simply combine 1 cup of water with 1 cup of sugar (we use raw cane sugar) in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
2. Then cool and funnel into a jar and add 1 tsp of rose water to the mix!
3. Keeps well refrigerated for 1-2 weeks.
