12 Easy & Delicious Matcha Recipes That You Can Make Daily
Whether you’re new to Matcha and need some easy ways to fit it into your busy routine… Or you’re already a Matcha lover but haven’t ventured beyond the Matcha lattes… you’ll find these top recipes so quick, easy and versatile to enjoy!
In this post you'll discover:
- The amazing effects of Matcha you too can experience on a daily basis!
- What to look out for in Matcha to avoid the bitter taste and low effects.
- Our most popular, easy hacks and quick recipes to enjoy your Matcha daily… even if you have no time!
WHY IS MATCHA SO GOOD TO TAKE DAILY
Matcha is the highest quality and most powerful form of green tea. That’s why for a 1000 years it was only available to meditating monks, the Japanese royal family and Shoguns - leaders of the samurai warriors.
One of the reasons why today Matcha has become so popular all over the globe is because of the amazing way it makes people feel immediately after drinking it – plus it has many other powerful benefits.
Let’s have a look at what drinking Matcha can do for you:
- Instant focus and alertness - Matcha is the richest whole food source of L-theanine - a very rare nutrient that in studies has been found to promote an energized and focused state - even during highly demanding tasks.
BUT…YOU NEED TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MATCHA
In order to enjoy the taste of your Matcha each time and experience its powerful benefits - you need to make sure you’re only choosing a genuine ceremonial grade Matcha.
Because only genuine ceremonial grade Matcha is rich in L-theanine, the rare nutrient that is responsible for most of Matcha’s benefits - energy, focus, feeling settled and grounded, creative, productive and social.
That’s why only Matcha of this grade has ever been used by Buddhist monks for long hours of meditation… And only such a high grade has ever been used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony: “The Way Of Tea”.
The higher the levels of L-theanine in Matcha - the more effects you’ll experience and the more amazing you’ll feel straight after drinking it.
“Only OB Matcha makes me feel energized, calmer, but not sleepy, revitalized and greener inside out, skin glows. Other matches can’t do this, they can’t even compare to OB Matcha, completely other level of quality” @sutfi on Instagram
How does this affect the taste?
The L-theanine gives Matcha its sweet notes - our Japanese tea master calls it “sweet without sugar”.
When Matcha is bitter you know straight away that it’s low in L-theanine (therefore the benefits you get will be poor too). This is one of the first signs that it’s of a low quality and not the type you're after!
Sadly Matcha has become such a buzzword today, which has resulted in many low quality Matcha products in shops and online being sold as “ceremonial grade” - especially because there are no regulations that companies have to comply with in order to call it this way in Western countries.
Before launching Organic Burst Matcha we have been researching Matcha for many months, travelling across Japan and tasting a large variety of the best Matcha in Japan, the US and Europe.
When we tasted our Matcha for the first time we knew immediately that was it! Until today we haven’t found anything that compares and hundreds of our Bursters from all over the globe agree.
“I don’t know how you guys do it, but your Matcha is unlike any others I’ve tried. It’s not fishy or bitter and it’s so easy to drink. And it doesn’t give me the terrible effects of caffeine. Wow. Thank you so much for producing such a high quality product!!” @kenziejenest on Instagram
Organic Burst Matcha is the real premium ceremonial grade, which is defined by:
- Shading the tea leaves for at least 21 days - a difficult and expensive process that differentiates real Matcha from simple green tea. This is done to bring out its nutrient content, color and taste.
- Picked only during the 1st harvest of the year - when the leaves are their richest in L-theanine. The later harvests produce lower grades of Matcha.
- Lab tested showing very high levels of L-theanine.
- Exceptional taste - creamy without cream, almost sweet, without sugar
- Not bitter, fishy or pungent - these are signs of lower grades of Matcha or those that were fertilized with fish and beef bones - something our farmers never do.
- Color - electric green (not faded or yellow green). The more vibrant the green color of Matcha the higher quality it is.
- Fine milling for exquisite taste and quickly absorbed nutrients.
“@organicburst is by far the absolute best Matcha I’ve ever found! You can even drink it without anything added - the taste is so fine and sweet…nothing bitter at all! And the colour…such a bright green. Couldn’t find this at any other Matcha. I highly recommend it to everyone…try it”@anma_mapic on Instagram

Matcha Tea Anti-Aging Recipe
Dr. Oz spoke with Candace Kumai about the amazing health benefits of Matcha Tea . Candace said that monks in Asia often drink Matcha Tea and it’s a common way to relax and enjoy company together.
Dr. Oz said that when he has searched for anti-aging secrets he says that you can look in test tubes all day long, but often it’s best to study people who actually do live a long time. He said that the southern most island in Japan, Okinawa people live to 100 at 4 times the rate as they do in Westernized countries like the United States.
When you look at what do the people from Okinawa do differently than many in the U.S. is that they drink Matcha Tea daily. It is a tradition there.
Matcha Tea Recipe
Add Matcha Tea powder to a bowl (1 to 2 teaspoons) and whisk.
Add to 2 ounces of hot water just below boiling point (175 – 180 degrees).

The Classic Madeleines
Madeleine is a traditional small cake from Commercy and Liverdun in northeastern France. They are small sponge cakes with a shell-like shape, traditionally flavored with just vanilla, but some also include lemon zest, which is also one of my favorite.
I’ve been making these classic French Madeleines for some time. Most recipes you see are very similar as it’s rather a simple recipe, and I have tested different recipes to see which one my family likes the most. When I tried the recipe from Julia Child’s From Julia Child’s Kitchen , I really liked how perfectly the Madeleines turned out. Since then, I always come back to this recipe, but I changed the ingredients and methods a little bit over time.
There’s no reason to be intimidated by these French tea cakes. Madeleines are probably one of the easiest baking recipes I’ve made, and since my son loves them it’s also one of the cakes that I make most frequently.
Helpful Tips for Making Green Tea Madeleines
Here are some tips that will help you make good Madeleines.
- Use room-temperature eggs as they expand in volume when beaten. If you forget to take them out of the fridge, submerge chilled eggs in warm water for several minutes.
- Rest the batter in the refrigerator for at least one hour. I usually just refrigerate the batter overnight. By chilling the batter, it helps to give the madeleines their distinctive bumps (the bulging shape of the cookies).
- Don’t be shy about butter when coating the molds. It helps you take Madeleines out of the pan after baking as well as achieving nice golden color.
- Use a 1 Tbsp measuring spoon to transfer the batter. It’s the easiest way to measure the exact amount for each mold and not overfill.
- Use good quality matcha. The good quality matcha should have a bright green color, not dull green. By the way, you can’t grind regular “green tea leaves” to make matcha. More about matcha below.
- Use metal pans as I think they conduct heat better than silicone molds, but I’ve seen some people make beautiful Madeleines with silicon molds, so it’s up to you.
Where to Get Matcha for Green Tea Madeleines ?
If there is a Japanese supermarket nearby, try checking their tea section for culinary use matcha. In my local Japanese supermarkets, they carry several grades of matcha powder including this Maeda-en brand matcha powder . In my local Asian supermarkets, I haven’t found 100% matcha powder yet. Be aware of some packages that are labeled “matcha”. Unfortunately, it’s not real matcha and it’s most likely a package for a cold drink that contains matcha and sugar. When it’s 100% matcha, the price should be around $8-10 for 1 ounce (28 grams). Yes, matcha powder is considered very expensive even in Japan. And get a small bag because you will need to use it within 2-3 weeks.
How to Enjoy Green Tea Madeleines
From all my taste test for this recipe, I got to enjoy Green Tea Madeleines as the afternoon snack with my children. Instead of European tea, I recommend enjoying these madeleines with Japanese tea, like sencha (煎茶), hojicha (ほうじ茶), or genmaicha (玄米茶). The Japanese teas go much better with matcha flavored snacks and sweets. I am getting hungry just talking about this dish, time to go open my snack container and enjoy one before my family eats them all. Till next time…

Tools you’ll need to make this drink
Boba Guy’s Strawberry Matcha Latte recipe is fairly straight forward. However, there are a few tools we recommend when making this drink:
Good quality matcha
Not so much a tool as it is a key ingredient. There’s a lot of matcha powder available on the market but they come in various quality and in various grades. Do not confuse green tea powder with matcha powder, they are different!
There are two main grades of matcha: Ceremonial Grade and Culinary Grade. Ceremonial grade is considered “Premium” and the highest quality and should be enjoyed as is without mixing it in with anything else. Therefore, for our application purposes, we recommend purchasing a “Culinary grade” matcha powder. We used this matcha powder we bought off of Amazon.
To make the Strawberry Puree, you’re going to need a blender to pulverize the strawberries into a chunky puree. We use a Vitamix blender but any blender will do.
Bamboo Matcha Whisk (Chasen)
Traditionally, matcha is made with a special bamboo whisk (chasen) that helps mix the matcha powder and water while introducing a lot of air to help make the drink frothy. It is said that this method really helps release the aroma and essence in the foam on the surface. If you don’t have a matcha whisk, you can just use a regular whisk.
Benefits from Matcha
Matcha is a traditional Japanese green tea that comes with many health benefits.
Cancer Prevention: Matcha contains antioxidants called catechins, which are not found in other foods. The catechin found in green tea, EGCg (epigallocatechin gallate) provides cancer-fighting properties. EGCg and other catechins counteract the effects of dangerous free radicals coming from chemicals, radiation, UV rays, which can all lead to cell and DNA damage.
Aids* in Weight Loss: I don’t want this benefit to be held with too much high regard, but there is research shown that consuming matcha can help boost metabolism and burn fat.
Lowers LDL “Bad” Cholesterol: The catechin found in green tea, EGCg, also aids in lowering cholesterol levels.
Pick a High Quality Matcha Powder
When you’re making a matcha green tea latte, the hardest part is starting because you want to pick the best matcha powder. There are so many options out there! What’s the difference between baking grade, ceremonial, culinary, etc.?
Well, I’ve found my favorite matcha powder is this first harvest latte grade powder.
If the brand you found doesn’t label their matcha green tea powder as “latte” grade, then be sure to select “ceremonial grade” for the best flavor and quality.
Mint Matcha Iced Tea
What looks like sparkling emeralds, packs a massive health boost, and is refreshingly delicious on a summer afternoon? A tall glass of mint matcha iced tea, that’s what! Think outside the “hot tea” box with this incredibly simple beverage that is the perfect companion to anything you’re having for lunch.
To make enough for two:
Start with two generous pinches of mint, a dollop of honey or your favorite organic sugar, one lime, two teaspoons of matcha (cooking grade) tea powder, two cups of spring water, and as much ice as you like. Do the James Bond thing and toss it all in a cocktail shaker for quick preparation. Pour into two tall glasses and enjoy the best tea this side of Kyoto.
10 Best DIY Matcha Face Mask Recipes
1. Diy Matcha Face Mask with Sour Cream
- 1 tablespoon of sour cream
- 1/2 tablespoon of matcha tea powder
- 1 teaspoon of honey
This replenishing face mask is suitable for all skin types. It revitalizes the skin, makes it smooth and plump, evens out the complexion and adds glow.
Sour cream contains lactic acid, which dissolves dead skin cells, exfoliates the skin and encourages the skin renewal process. Honey hydrates the skin, soothes it, helps with acne and other skin imperfections and delays skin aging signs.
First mix the matcha powder and sour cream. When you get a smooth mixture, add the honey and mix everything well together. Apply the mask to a clean face.
Relax and use the opportunity to put cucumber slices on your eyes. After about 20 minutes, rinse off the mask using lukewarm water and proceed with your usual skincare routine.
2. Diy Matcha Tea & Banana Face Mask
Deep-nourishing face mask, perfect for when your skin starts to look dull and tired. It provides your skin with lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, protects and rejuvenates it.
Banana moisturizes the skin without making it oily, makes it smooth and supple and soothes irritations. Powdered milk brightens and tones the skin, making it look and feel healthy and youthful.
Mash the banana with a fork try to make it as smooth as possible. Then add both matcha powder and powdered milk and mix it well. You should get a smooth paste that is not too thick nor too runny.
Apply the mask to a clean skin, preferably after a face scrub. Leave it on for around 15 minutes. Then wash the mask off and apply a face moisturizer right away, to lock in the moisture.
3. Anti-Aging Diy Matcha Face Mask
- 1 large teaspoon of aloe vera gel
- ½ teaspoon matcha powder
- a couple of drops of rose water
- 1 teaspoon grapeseed oil
This is one of the most luxurious DIY beauty products that many commercial ones can’t compete with. It tones and tightens the skin, lightens aging spots and, with regular usage, it can even reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
Both aloe vera gel and rose water are super-hydrating products, full of antioxidants that protect the skin against free radicals. They plump up the skin, repair damages and increase radiance.
Grapeseed oil is one of the best natural oils for aging skin. It is a lightweight, nutrient-dense product that stimulates the collagen production and promotes the skin’s healing process.
To make this mask, just mix all the ingredients well together. Leave it on your face for 15 – 20 minutes. Wash off and apply an anti-aging face cream. Use this mask at least once a week.
4. Detoxifying Diy Matcha Face Mask
- 1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
- 1 teaspoon kaolin clay
- 1 – 2 drops tea tree oil (buy here)
This mask is great for oily skin prone to acne and blackheads. It deep cleanses the skin, absorbs the excess sebum and dirt and unclogs pores.
Kaolin clay is a gentle cosmetic clay that detoxifies the skin, deep-purifies it and makes it soft and smooth. Tea tree oil has powerful antimicrobial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, perfect for acne.
To make this detoxifying DIY matcha face mask, mix matcha powder and kaolin clay. Add just enough water to get a paste-like consistency. Add the tea tree oil and mix it all well.
Apply the mask to a clean face. Leave it on until it starts to dry. Rinse off with lukewarm-to-cold water and apply a lightweight, non-comedogenic face cream right away.
5. Purifying Diy Matcha Face Steam
Face steams, when used right, can be very beneficial for your skin. Especially if you use them as a part of a full at-home facial, they can make a visible difference in your skin’s appearance.
Face steams open up your pores, making it easier for you to cleanse them and to get rid of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and enlarged pores. Face steams also tone the skin, hydrate it and enhance the absorption of the products you apply next.
Boil the water. Remove from the heat, add all the ingredients and cover the pot with a lid. Let it sit for 10 – 15 minutes.
Place your face above the pot (make sure the steam is not too hot) and cover your head with a big towel. Stay like this for 10 – 15 minutes. Then wipe your face with a clean towel and proceed with your skincare routine.
6. Matcha & Strawberry Face Mask for Glowing Skin
This DIY matcha face mask is a great choice when you need some instant solution to add some life and glow to your face. It evens out the skin tone, soothes inflammations and adds radiance.
Strawberries are full of vitamin C that protects your skin against free radicals. They can help you keep acne and oily skin under control and fade blemishes and acne scars. Oats are great in soothing the skin and improving the complexion.
Mix the matcha powder and oat flour. Mash the strawberries until they are smooth. Add 1 – 2 teaspoons of the mashed strawberries to the previous mixture, enough to get a smooth paste that is not too thick.
Apply the mask to a clean face, after a face scrub. Leave it on for 10 – 15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly. Apply a nourishing face moisturizer right away.
7. Refreshing Diy Matcha & Cucumber Face Mask
This mask is very soothing and cooling. It is one of the best DIY beauty products for hydrating the skin. It offers a perfect refreshment for your skin during the hot summer months.
This mask is suitable for all skin types, but it is especially beneficial to oily, acne prone skin, dehydrated skin and for treating enlarged pores.
Blend a cucumber with a couple of mint leaves. Mix one tablespoon with the matcha green tea powder. Apply a thick layer to your face. Leave it on for 20 – 30 minutes and during that time reapply as needed. Then rinse off the mask and apply a face moisturizer.
The rest of the blended cucumber you can divide in an ice cube tray and freeze for the next usages.
8. Exfoliating Diy Matcha Face Mask & Scrub
Regular exfoliation is very important for your skin. A face scrub removes all the dead, dry, dull skin off your face and encourages the new, healthy skin growth.
This natural face scrub is at the same time a nourishing mask. Other than exfoliating, sugar also moisturizes the skin and stimulates the collagen production. Olive oil softens dry patches, soothes the skin and prevents irritations and damages.
Mix the matcha powder and brown sugar. Add just enough olive oil (or any other natural oil) to get the consistency of wet sand.
Use this scrub to gently exfoliate your face for about 5 minutes. Then leave it on for another 10 – 15 minutes. Wash off using lukewarm water and a gentle face cleanser. Apply a face cream while your skin is still slightly damp.
9. Diy Matcha Face Mask with Milk and Rice Flour
This brightening face mask is one of the best natural masks you can find. It lightens the skin, fades acne marks, aging spots and other skin imperfections, rejuvenates the skin and gives it a youthful, healthy appearance.
Rice flour softens the skin, protects it against free radicals and environmental aggressors, evens out the skin tone and preserves youthful looking skin. Milk hydrates, cleanses and refreshes the skin and makes it look plump and glowing.
Mix the matcha powder and rice flour. Add just enough milk to get a smooth paste. Your mask should be thick enough so that it doesn’t run down your face, but other than that it should be as thin and runny as possible.
Apply a thin layer of the mask to a clean face. Leave it on for around 15 minutes. During that time, reapply every time your skin soaks it up or if it starts to dry on your skin. Then rinse off the mask and apply a face cream.
10. Diy Matcha Green Tea Body Scrub
Why not use all the benefits matcha green tea powder has to offer to your skin to treat your whole body? This matcha body scrub will leave your skin sooo soft, smooth and supple, elastic and rejuvenated and naturally glowing.
Every time you make some DIY matcha face mask, don’t forget to exfoliate your whole body with this amazing body scrub.
- 1 – 2 tablespoons matcha green tea powder
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup sweet almond oil
- 1 1/2 cup white sugar

Melt the coconut oil. Add the sweet almond oil and remove from the heat. Add the sugar and matcha powder and mix well. In the end, add any essential oil that you like. Mix everything well together to get the consistency of wet sand.
