Matcha is considered much more than a drink and the tea ceremony is a beautiful and complex ritual designed to clear and relax the mind.

 

The traditional Japanese way of preparing matcha green tea requires the use of a matcha tea bowl, a bamboo whisk and a bamboo scoop .

 

If you don’t have the time or the traditional instruments, don’t worry. A cup, a spoon and a whisk or milk frother will do just fine

 

  1. Sift ½ tsp of Saikou Matcha into a tea bowl (adjust proportions to taste).
  2. Pour 2-3oz of hot (not boiling) water and whisk. Using boiling water will make it bitter.
  3. Once it becomes smooth and frothy, your matcha green tea is ready to drink.

 

It’s time to enjoy your matcha green tea.
