Sparkling Matcha Lavender Lemonade

Updated: Jun 5, 2023

The benefits of matcha and lavender in one hydrating hit!


Tried and tested ( on a newbie to matcha....my husband!)
it got a BIG thumbs up!

I wanted to introduce my husband to Matcha because of its health benefits and as he is new to this type of green tea, I thought it may be a little too much for him on its own for his first introduction (he has traditional tastes), so what better way to try than to make a lemonade with it?








I doubled up on the syrup recipe so I could keep it in the fridge for 4 weeks.

How to make -


Lavender Syrup

  • 2 tsp dried lavender

  • 2 butterfly pea flowers

  • 1 cup sugar

Other Ingredients (per person)

  • 1 tsp matcha

  • 1-2 lemons juiced

  • 2oz Lavender Syrup

  • Sparkling water

  • Ice




Make Lavender Syrup

  1. Add the lavender and butterfly pea flowers to a teapot or cup with a strainer

  2. Add 1 cup of boiling water and let it steep for 5-10 minutes

  3. Strain and add sugar and dissolve

  4. This keeps for 4 weeks in the fridge







Make the Drink

  1. In a bowl - Add matcha to 80º C water and whisk - leave to cool

  2. Fill up a glass with ice

  3. Add 4 parts sparkling water

  4. Add 1 part lavender syrup

  5. Add 2 parts lemon juice

  6. Add 1 part matcha tea


Mix well and enjoy!

Just to note - do not put it in a flask - I did this and the lid popped off and exploded everywhere! Amazing smell, but the green look wasn't too good!
