Step one: measure your Matcha
Using a Bamboo Matcha scoop or a teaspoon, spoon out around a teaspoon, or 2-3 grams, of Matcha powder. If you like your green tea to be strong with a refreshing kick, try adding a bit more powder. If it's too strong, try using a bit less powder. Experimenting is key to finding the perfect cup of tea.
Step two: sifting
Sift the measured amount of Matcha powder through a small fine sieve, into the cup or bowl that you will be using for drinking. The sieving of Matcha powder is essential to ensure the very fine particles do not stick together - ensuring that your cup is smooth and creamy rather than clumpy.
Step three: add water
Boil water to 90-95ºC and add the desired amount to your chosen cup / bowl. For best results, use freshly boiled spring mountain water.
Step four: whisking
Using a Bamboo Whisk, whisk vigorously in a zig zag direction, holding the whisk lightly and constantly flicking your wrist in a back and forth motion. Right before your eyes, the Matcha Powder will dissolve into the water. Once fully dissolved, you should have a frothy green liquid.
Step five: enjoy your delicious and healthy cup of Matcha
After leaving your tea to cool for approximately three minutes, you can start enjoying your freshly brewed Matcha Green Tea.
