Traditional Matcha Tea Preparation

Traditional Matcha Tea Preparation

Known as "chado" or "the way of tea", the Japanese tea ceremony has centered around this elegant preparation for centuries.

STEP 1
Place the sifter over the chawan (tea bowl), then use the chashaku (bamboo scoop) to add about a half teaspoon (1 gram) of matcha to it.
 
STEP 2
Use the bamboo scoop to sift the matcha down into the bowl. This helps prevent clumps and ensures the smoothest bowl possible.
 
STEP 3
Pour 2oz (about a quarter cup) of hot water (not boiling, about 160°F is ideal) into the bowl.
 
STEP 4
Using the bamboo whisk, vigorously mix the matcha in
 back and forth “M”-shaped motions until froth forms (about 10-20 seconds).
 
STEP 5
Optional: slowly add more water to your taste preference. We usually add another 4oz (half cup). The more you add, the lighter the flavor.
 
STEP 6
Take your time to slowly sip and enjoy your perfect matcha moment. To your health and wellbeing!
