Doctor’s Morning Matcha Chai:

A Way to Enjoy the Benefits of Matcha

The many health Benefits of Matcha

Like most people I have a daily morning routine. First thing in the morning I have a glass of water with a dash of organic apple cider vinegar. Eventually, after morning meditation and such (breathing, exercise), I make my morning Chai. I thought others might enjoy my Matcha Chai so here’s the recipe, though keep in mind that I never measure anything so it is a little different every day!

Ingredients for one:

  • Matcha (powdered green tea leaves)1 tsp.
  • Fresh ginger to taste.
  • Cardamom ¼ tsp
  • Pumpkin pie spice ¼ tsp.
  • Coconut milk powder one big tsp. (makes it creamy)
  • Almond milk ½ cup
  • Coconut sugar to taste.

Replacements, deletions, &quantities as per your taste.


  • Blend sliced ginger in ¾ C water, heat to boil and then reduce heat to slow boil.
  • In the meantime, add the almond milk, or other favourite milk to the blender and add all the other ingredients.
  • Blend and then add the ginger tea through a fine mesh sieve and press with a spoon to get all the ginger tea out.
  • Blend again, heat without boiling and enjoy.

The health benefits of Matcha are considerable. The following article from the medical research database published in 2020 contains a thorough review.
