Turn Over a New (Tea) Leaf Warm your body and soul with these DIY brews.

Serves 1 Un­like other green tea leaves that are steeped then strained, with matcha tea you’re ac­tu­ally con­sum­ing dried and pow­dered leaves, which means this tea is packed with an­tiox­i­dants and of­fers a sus­tained en­ergy boost. It’s a great al­ter­na­tive to cof­fee, as it gives you a caf­feine buzz with­out the sub­se­quent crash.

1 cup al­mond milk 1 drop vanilla ex­tract (less than ⅛ tsp.) or a small scrap­ing of vanilla seeds (less than ¼ pod) Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg 1 tsp. matcha tea pow­der ½ to 1 tsp. raw honey or maple

syrup

In a small saucepan, gently warm milk with vanilla and nutmeg. In­crease tem­per­a­ture to achieve a soft, rolling boil, then im­me­di­ately re­move from heat. Whisk in matcha pow­der un­til frothy. Add honey and serve warm or, in warm weather, you can sim­ply whisk all the in­gre­di­ents to­gether and serve cold.
