About This Matcha :
This is a calm, tranquil tea free of intense or roaring flavors and with mildly tart and slightly bitter notes. Its finely balanced flavor and unmatched value for money make it a superb choice. Step inside the world of powdered green tea – it will be a great beginning.
How To Prepare :
Put 2g (0.4 US tsp, 1 teaspoon or 2 chashaku scoop) matcha powder into a suitable tea bowl.
Pour 70 ml (2.4 fl oz) 80℃ (176°F) water over the matcha powder.
Whisk with a chasen (tea whisk) until foamy.
- Before Step 1, warm up the tea bowl with hot water, then dry it with a cloth to create the perfect temperature so make the most delicious matcha with a fresh scent while preparing. (Optional)
- To prevent clotting of the matcha powder, sift it through a fine strainer before use. (Strongly recommended)
- After the matcha is done, drink it immediately, because as it cools down it gets more and more bitter. (Recommended)
- Freshness is the most important thing for the enjoyment of Matcha. It is best to use up the tea within one month of opening. (Strongly recommended)
Extra Tip :
Try iced matcha: pour the finished matcha over ice.
