Mulled Pomegranate and Matcha Recipe

Warming, spicy and uplifting, this is just what you need on a chilly winter’s day. The matcha flavour is subdued by the other ingredients – but it’s there, doing its good work!




15 minutes


35 minutes


  • 1 tsp matcha
  • 400ml/14fl oz/1⅔ cups pomegranate juice
  • 2 clementines
  • 10 cloves
  • 2 tsp pomegranate molasses
  • Caster/granulated sugar, to sweeten
  • Chunky pieces of pomegranate (optional)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks, to serve


1 Whisk the matcha in a small bowl with a little of the pomegranate juice until smooth.

2 Squeeze the juice of one clementine and put in a saucepan with the remaining pomegranate juice. Stud the remaining clementine with the cloves and cut in half. Add to the pan and heat very gently for 2–3 minutes.

3 Add the pomegranate molasses to the pan with the matcha mixture, a sprinkling of sugar if you find the flavour too tart, and the pieces of pomegranate.

4 Pour into heatproof glasses, adding the fruit and cinnamon sticks to serve.
