The weathermen and women have had it easy in recent weeks. Mostly sunny and not a speck of rain to be seen. You would almost think you are on vacation.

Today the thermometer is again at 32°C. The plants in my garden crave some water (as you can see in the picture). And they're not the only ones...

In this hot weather you need to drink a lot of water. At least 2 liters say specialists. But with such temperatures you should drink more than that. Otherwise you will dehydrate and that is definitely not fun.

You will soon suffer from headaches, dizziness and nausea. You will also no longer be able to urinate and you will get terribly thirsty.

The solution? Drink a lot of water. But you soon get tired of that.

A healthy and refreshing alternative is to make your own iced tea. It really is much simpler than it sounds.

You can prepare this matcha iced tea in just 2 minutes. And he is super tasty.

Homemade matcha iced tea

Are you also ready for a nice refreshment? Tired of drinking tasteless water all the time? I do.

A homemade iced tea always looks so delicious. But I always thought it was hard to make. Not so. Below I tell you how to make a delicious matcha ice tea in just 2 minutes.

You need this for your matcha iced tea:

  • 1 tbsp matcha powder
  • 1 glass of cold water
  • ice cubes
  • few sprigs of mint
  • ½ lime

Put the matcha powder, water, ice cubes, mint and a little lime juice in a shaker (or glass that you can close) and shake well until the matcha is nicely dissolved. Garnish with another sprig of mint and a slice of lime. That's it :-)

Have you got the taste? Try this homemade matcha ice cream .

I'm very curious what you think of it.
