By consuming the entire leaf, you reap greater health benefits than if you were to infuse the tea leaves. Enjoy Matcha traditionally by whisking a teaspoon of powder in a bowl with hot water or gret creative by adding some to your smoothies and baking recipes!

How to Brew
Start with filtered water for the best brew.
You will need: a matcha whisk, a tea bowl, a matcha spoon or teaspoon, and a matcha strainer (optional)
Add 2 scoops or 1 teaspoon of matcha to the bowl. A strainer may be used to sift the matcha free of clumps. Adjust amount of matcha to your preferences.
Slowly add 1/3 cup of hot water (~175°F).
Lightly press the matcha whisk into the bowl and whisk in a quick back and forth motion until a smooth layer of foam is created.
Note: The method above is to make usucha, or thin tea. The way to prepare matcha for the tea ceremony is known as koicha, or thick tea.
