Brunch: pretty much everyone’s favorite weekend activity. I mean, can you really say no to sipping on mimosas with good company on a beautiful beach front patio? Ok, maybe we’re a bit spoiled here in California, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your own brunch in the comforts of your home (yes, comfy pajamas included).

This weekend, think green (and maybe save some green in the process) with Matcha. Not with the usual cup of hot tea or iced latte (although highly recommended!), but with our Ultimate Matcha Brunch Guide! Explore a variety of mouthwatering recipes geared toward everyone from the health-conscious to the adventurous. Not to mention, each recipe is constructed with love, care, and Aiya’s Cooking Grade Matcha, so we’re sure whichever one you choose, you’ll love it to bits and pieces.

And besides, brunch (& breakfast) is the most important meal of the day—don’t miss out!
