How to make matcha in 5 easy steps
Follow our easy steps to prepare matcha as a hot cup of tea below. Matcha is a green powder, traditionally made from ground Japanese green tea leaves. As matcha comes in a powder form it needs to be whisked with water, or milk, in order to drink it. Preparing your own matcha is a very straight forward task and is a nice therapeutic 5 mins just to yourself! Our quick and easy steps will help you make the perfect matcha every day.
Make matcha green tea powder - the easy way!
1. Take a Perfect Matcha Spoon of matcha and add to your mug.
2. Add a splash of warm water (a drop of cold and a drop of hot water works great)
3. Grab your matcha whisk and whisk in a W shape until it is frothy, make sure no matcha blobs are around the side of the mug!
We suggest using our mini matcha whisk to use in a mug, you can find it in our Matcha Solo Travel Kit (it comes with a handy mini tin to get you started)!
4. Once you have a liquid paste texture top up your cup with hot water, stirring as you go.
5. Add a splash of almond milk and honey if you wish and enjoy!
