If you, like me, are lucky enough to be experiencing the rare perfection of a sunny, hot day in Northern Europe, then stop right there: I have the perfect drink for you.
Maru Matcha, watermelon, peach lemonade, served in a tall glass with plenty of ice.
No, this drink doesn't have the characteristic leafy green that most matcha beverages do, and yes, that's totally fine. As much as matcha green tea stands out on its own, it also works beautifully as a spice. Think a dash of espresso in a chocolate cake.
Here, matcha silently compliments the juiciness of the watermelon and perfumed sweetness of the peaches, barely pronouncing itself, but ever so delicously heightening the flavour of the fruit.
Trust us on this one. It tastes incredible. And incredibly simple.

Oh, and this tall drink of lemonade tastes wonderful with a splash of vodka added to it too...
