How to Make Matcha from A to Z

Once you learn how to whisk your own matcha, it can be a very enjoyable and rewarding process. With a few simple tools and a few easy steps, you can start making delicious and foamy matcha bowls at home for yourself or for your friends. 

If you have been following us on social media, you'll know that a while back, we released a video about how to make your own matcha at home. In case you missed it, here is a step by step walkthrough.

There are some tools that are recommended, but they are not all necessary. You should definitely at least get a Chasen or bamboo whisk if you are serious about matcha. If you are going to purchase only one matcha utensil, it should be this.

How to Make Matcha:

Step 1: Place the sifter on top of a bowl

Step 2: Add 2-3 teaspoons of matcha to the sifter 

Step 3: Push the powder through the sifter to get rid of the clumps

Step 4: Add just enough water to the bowl to form a paste (this makes it even easier to make sure there are no clumps)

Step 5: Add 2oz of water to the bowl (85 degrees C)

Step 6: Whisk the tea. Start by clearing off the sides and then whisk to create a foam.

*Bonus Tip* Use a larger bowl so you can get more complete motions. This leads to an amazing finished product from my experience.

Our Organic Matcha

Our organic Matcha Washimine is from the cultivar Okumidori, normally reserved for the highest quality green teas because of its sweet umami taste with nearly no bitterness. It has a smooth silky texture with a round butternut note and a lot of body to it. Each sip brings out the smooth taste of fresh young spinach with a hint of asparagus
