With a little planning, it's really not that difficult to make matcha!
Here's what you will need...
When brewing matcha, heat your matcha bowl by adding very hot water and allowing it to sit for a few minutes. Then, empty and DRY COMPLETELY.
With special bamboo tea spoon, add 1 1/2 ~ 1 3/4 spoon fulls of thin matcha to the bowl (double for the thick koicha type). We like to sift it through a screen for a more consistant, frothier brew, but this is optional. Note: If you are using a regular teaspoon instead of the traditional Japanese bamboo matcha spoon, only add about 1/4 of a teaspoon!
Add about 1/2 cup of hot water with a temperature of about 175F/80C. Important: This is somewhat less than boiling.
Wet your tea whisk. Next, whisk briskly in a "W" shaped pattern for a minute or two until the matcha froths to a nice green colored foam.
