What is Matcha?
Matcha is powder made from pulverizing the luscious deep green top leaves of shaded tea plants into a powder. Since the whole leaf is consumed it has more nutrients and health benefits than your typical cup of green tea.
Matcha is a “superfood,” rich in anti-oxidants and is reported to significantly improve clarity of mind, memory recall and retention. It has traditionally been used to bolster energy, clarity, focus and peace.
Here is more about Matcha and its health benefits.
Here’s how to make the smoothest matcha you’ll ever taste! It guarantees the smoothest and frothiest matcha:
Step 1: 1 tsp of matcha on filter
Step 2: use spoon to move matcha around and sieve through the filter
Step 3: pour in your liquid – water, juice, milk – then gently shake, swish and turn upside down to get all matcha off the bottom… If you are using water, the ideal temperature is 65 – 85 degrees Celsius (150 – 180 degrees Fahrenheit). That is below boiling, so watch your kettle!
STEAM WARNING : **be extra careful when using hot water and shaking**
DO NOT USE BOILING WATER
Step 4: slowly remove the lid, drink and enjoy
Temperature matters when making matcha. Heat brings out the bitter flavors in matcha. Where cold water will bring out the sweetness and the rich creamy feel unique to matcha.
