How to Prepare Matcha
We recommend creating your own at-home matcha experience using the traditional tea ceremony teawares, including a; tea bowl, tea whisk, tea scoop, and matcha sifter.
Step 1: Heat 70 millilitres of filtered or spring water to a temperature of 80°C/176°F.
Step 2: Place between one to two scoops of organic matcha into the sifter and release the powder through it into the tea bowl. Add a splash of the heated water to the matcha powder and gently combine with the whisk until smooth in consistency.
Step 3: Add the remainder of the heated water and briskly move the tea whisk backward and forth in an ‘M’ - shaped motion until foam forms on the surface. Enjoy. Sheer bliss!
- Boil the water, then let it cool for two to three minutes to achieve the desired temperature, or alternatively add a little cold water. Resist pouring boiling water directly onto the delicate matcha powder as it will scorch and leave bitterness.
- Consume the matcha within three minutes of preparation to enjoy the best consistency and flavour.
