To prepare a good matcha, just follow a few simple, but precise, steps.

  • Ideally, remove the matcha from the fridge and leave at room temperature for 30 minutes before use (Ideal but not essential).
  • Sift the measure of matcha you need through a sieve for a creamier mousse and to prevent lumps.
  • Warm your chawan (bowl) with hot water, empty and wipe it dry. Add 1 tsp, or two chashaku (matcha spoons)of sifted matcha into the bowl.
  • Trickle 65ml of water (75°C) onto the tea
  • Whisk with energy with a chasen (bamboo whisk). Start beneath the surface. As a mousse starts to form, gradually raise your whisking towards the central surface. With practice you will produce more foam each time.
