How to Make Matcha

This Sunday morning blog will be short and sweet: How to make a nice bowl of Matcha.

 

For the longest time, I was afraid to make my own matcha because seeing the whisk, scoop, bowl, and all the tools made SPECIFICALLY for matcha....scared me off. 

But one day I faced my fears and entered a tea shop and asked for guidance in making matcha the Japanese ceremony way. Now, I will share my knowledge and hope that you will try to make Matcha yourself ! It really is an experience and worth the time.

Items you will need:

  • Matcha
  • Matcha bowl
  • Matcha whisk
  • Matcha scoop

You can find sets that come with the whisk and scoop. Sometimes you can find a set with the whisk, scoop, and the bowl.

Steps:

  1. Matcha bowl must be warmed, so preheat bowl by filling it about 1/3 with hot water. Place the whisk into the water just to get the tips wet. Pour out the water and dry the bowl. Set the whisk aside.
  2. Use the bamboo scoop to measure out 2 scoops of matcha powder and place in the bowl. Sifting the matcha prior will ensure no clumps and a better matcha.
  3. Heat 70ml (2.3oz) of water to 160f (70c) and pour into the bowl.
  4. Take the whisk and briskly whisk in a W or M motion. Use your wrist NOT YOUR ARM, until the matcha froths.
  5. Enjoy!
