How to make Matcha:

Matcha is prepared by whisking the powder in hot water (not to exceed 175 degrees)to create a vivid green tea paste. If prepared correctly, the outcome is a delicious smooth and creamy frothy, espresso-like feel.

  1. Place one teaspoon of matcha in a matcha bowl or a small salad bowl.
  2. Add 2.5 ounces (70ml) of hot water (about 160-175 degrees)
  3. Whisk briskly with a bamboo chasen or hand frother for up to 15 seconds until rich and foamy.
  4. Place your mixture in a cup/mug
  5. Pour hot milk* of choice in your mug
  6. Stir and enjoy! 

*We recommend using almond, oat, or cashew milk. For a thicker cup, try whole milk or cream.
