Preparing the perfect bowl of matcha
Making matcha can be fun and surprisingly easy! You can do a more traditional preparation, or a convenient one if you're busy. Here's quick steps anyone can use:
Heat water in a kettle until steam first appears; this will be well below boiling, about 180°F. Turn off heat.
Use a tea scoop or 1tsp to measure matcha and sift into a bowl to prevent clumps.
Add 2-4oz of water for desired consistency.
Sip and enjoy.
