Make your morning pick me up more fun with my easy matcha soda recipe! You only need two steps and three ingredients for this fizzy boost of green tea energy.

What is Matcha Soda?
Essentially matcha green tea and soda water, sparkling water, or mineral water--any water with bubbles. You can serve it on ice or plain and may have come across canned green tea soda but this is better because it's matcha soda from scratch so you can completely control what's in it and what it tastes like--no soda stream or fancy equipment needed!

Substitutions & Variations
Sweetener - I sip my fizzy matcha unsweetened but feel free to sweeten it with maple syrup to keep it vegan or honey ginger syrup or even a sugar syrup like my hibiscus simple syrup for extra razzle dazzle!
Flavor - Add a splash of citrus for matcha lemon soda or lavender syrup for a calming DIY green tea soda. The options are endless.
How to Make a Matcha Soda from Scratch
Step One: Dissolve the matcha powder in hot water.
Step Two: Pour into a glass of sparkling water over ice and enjoy!
