Matcha Tea Water Kefir

Matcha literally means “powdered tea.” When you drink traditional green tea, dried leaves get infused into the hot water, then the leaves are removed from the tea. With matcha tea, you’re drinking the actual leaves finely ground into a powder that dissolves in water. This makes it a more potent source of nutrients than steeped green tea. Remember – always use good bottles made for brewing.

  • Add matcha and sugar to a 16 ounce bottle.
  • Pour 14 ounces of basic water kefir into the rest of the bottle, leaving a small amount of room (about 1 inch) at the top.
  • Cap your bottle and allow to ferment for 1-2 days.
  • Check often by opening it to see if it is bubbly.
  • Once ready, you can drink immediately or store in the refrigerator. Drink within 1 week for optimal benefits and taste.


Kombucha needs sugar to create bubbliness in the second ferment. Since there are no natural sugars in matcha, we added a small amount of sugar for the brew to consume and create carbonation.
