Holiday Season Matcha Drink Recipes

When the Fall and Winter come knocking everyone clamors into coffee shops for seasonal beverages. We absolutely love a cozy coffee drink, but obviously we believe matcha has a place to shine here too. 

Matcha can honestly be used in place of coffee or espresso in so many holiday drink recipes, but we found a few original recipes from across the internet to get you inspired. 

You can use any matcha, but of course we recommend Wonder Matcha

What is Wonder Matcha, you ask? Well...Wonder Matcha is our flagship adaptogenic mushroom matcha, blended with functional mushroom extracts, adaptogens, and (the very seasonal!) ceylon cinnmon. New to mushroom matcha? Learn more about it here.
