Preparing Matcha (Japanese Powdered Green Tea)
5 mins (prep 5)
2 ingredients
1 servings
Matcha, powdered green tea, is the centerpiece of the Japanese tea ceremony. However, it is enjoying a wide popularity at the moment because of its rich, intense flavor and its high concentration of antioxidants and vitamins. To prepare matcha in a traditional manner, one needs a tea bowl and a bamboo whisk (chasen). The bamboo whisk is an important part, as the fine bamboo strands help to dissolve the matcha into the water while creating a pleasant, light froth. A regular metal whisk is not fine enough to dissolve the matcha properly.
