On those days when you need to take it up a notch and also calm the hell down, matcha tea is your BFF. The bright green powder is made of finely ground green tea leaves and is loaded with energy-boosting caffeine and L-theanine, an amino acid that can ease anxiety and promote some much-needed relaxation.
In this tasty beverage, matcha teams up with our favorite Caribbean spirit: crystal clear tequila, plus a hefty dose of vitamin-loaded sweet fruit to compliment its truckload of healthy antioxidants. Put it all together and it’s just the thing to take you to that perfect spot in between the dichotomy of woke (if you will) versus chill.
