Deliciously sour and tart, yuzu is not to be mistaken with your everyday lemon. A citrus fruit from Japan, it is loved for its exceptionally tangy flavour, aromatic peel, and many health benefits. This small citron packs a whole lot of punch complemented by strong floral notes. It only produces a minimal amount of juice, making it a delicacy to be savoured. It is often used in salad dressings, marinades, dipping sauces, and cocktails but is equally the perfect ingredient for a refreshing lemonade!
Our new Yuzu Matcha Lemonade is made with all-natural fresh lemons, a dash of homemade raw cane sugar syrup, freshly squeezed yuzu juice and a shot of matcha. The brightness of lemons and yuzu perfectly balances our matcha tea’s earthy flavour. This wholesome summer drink feels as good as it tastes. Much like lemons, yuzu is brimming with antioxidants and vitamin C, naturally working to strengthen your immune system. It is also known to improve the health of your skin, promote better blood circulation and prevent blood clots. Low in calories, studies have shown it also has a significant soothing effect, making it the ideal drink to alleviate stress.
Paired with matcha powder’s many health benefits, this lemonade is food for the body and soul. Matcha tea has a wealth of antioxidants, protects your heart and boosts brain function. On top of that, it’s low in calories - making it totally guilt-free! Best of all, if you’re craving caffeine, matcha’s slow-releasing energy boost can sustain you for hours longer than coffee could. It provides a calming energy rather than a jittery buzz that ends in a caffeine crash.
Soothing, stimulating and invigorating sip after sip, try the new Yuzu Matcha Lemonade at any of our Matchali stores across Hong Kong.
