Step-by-step guide to make your usucha matcha tea as tasty and aromatic as possible. We highly recommend to use premium quality matcha powder for your matcha tea.
|1. Pour 90-95 degrees C water into your matcha bowl. Let the water warm the chawan for about 5 minutes.|
|2. Pour the water off and dry the bowl inside. The bowl is hot and ready for matcha powder.|
| 3. Put on sieve 2-2.5g matcha powder and sieve* into bowl. The powder will turn itself really aromatic inside the warm bowl. |
*Sieving is very important for the powder to be as smooth as possible. It will then be free of lumps and it will then dissolve in water more easily.
|4. Add 25-30 ml room temperature (ca 25 degrees C) water. Prefer soft bottle water to rough tap water.|
|5. Make rounds with your bamboo whisk to make a smooth paste.|
|6. Add 60 ml 80 degrees C water and whisk intensively making W shape motions so that the powder will be as frothy and airy as possible. Do not touch the bottom of the bowl with your whisk. |
|7. Your matcha usucha is ready. Enjoy the moment.|
