Traditional Matcha Directions:
Heat up 6-8 ounces water to nearly boiling (70°C(158°F)-80°C(176°F).
Preheat your matcha bowl, by putting hot water at the bottom 1/3 of bowl, and rest your matcha whisk in it, so the tips of your whisk soak in the hot water. Once your bowl is warm (1-2 minutes) empty the water and dry the bowl with a clean cloth. Replace whisk onto holder.
Place 2 scoops of matcha using your bamboo spoon in bowl and add 1/2 ounce of your hot water. Using your spoon, create a paste with your matcha removing any clumps. (note: Some people prefer to use a matcha sifter for this process)
Pour the remaining 5 1/2 – 7 1/2 ounces into bowl over your matcha paste.
Hold the whisk in your dominant hand and hold the matcha bowl with your other hand. Whisk the matcha briskly in a W or zig-zag formation, until the matcha is very well mixed and has froth on the surface.
Wrap both hands around your matcha bowl, sip, savor and relish in the many benefits of your matcha.
Be sure to thoroughly rinse all your matcha tools in hot water to avoid staining.
