The Perfect Drinking Matcha
So ya wanna keep it simple, huh? We like to as well, on occasion. ;) Here is a simple "recipe" for a simple drinking matcha (just add water)!
*Note: We prefer to use a bamboo whisk and to whisk in a tea bowl.
*Note: You can use either Focused As F*ck or Cozy As F*ck Metta Matcha for a simple (straight-up) drinking matcha.
Add 1 tsp matcha to a tea bowl or large mug using a small sifter (this will help prevent clumps).
Add a small bit of hot water (about 2 tbsp - make sure it's between 170-175F, not boiling) and whisk with a bamboo whisk just to remove any remaining clumps and create a paste.
Once all clumps are gone, add in a bit more water (about 1/4 cup) and whisk vigorously until frothy. Add more water, if desired, and whisk again. Your matcha is ready when there is a smooth foam on top.
*** You can also pour this over ice for an iced matcha!
