I am a big lover of the antioxidant powerhouse; MATCHA GREEN TEA. So much so, that I wrote a blog post on the many benefits which you can find here 🙂
When I first tried making it I was making it in a mug (as you would a normal cuppa) and stirring it with a teaspoon and I found that the powder was not really dissolving. I would end up with bits of congealed matcha tea in the bottom of the cup (which I felt compelled to down in one as this stuff isn’t the cheapest and I’m not wasting a drop)… but ewww! Not the nicest mouthful, I can tell you.
So I decided to look up on the wonderful internet how this tea is meant to be made and found these instructions: –
- Use a bamboo whisk and tea bowl
- Add a small amount of hot water (just under the boil) and whisk vigorously in a zigzag motion until the tea is frothy
- Enjoy your matcha tea straight from the bowl
Ah-ha! There’s where I was going wrong!
So, when the question of what I wanted for Christmas came from my lovely Mum, I, of course, asked for a matcha whisk and bowl 🙂 (Thanks Mum)! ❤
I have now tried making it the proper way and it really does work! It makes a lovely frothy tea with no congealed bits – yay!
I add a little milk to mine as I have tried and tested many different ways to drink it and found that this is the way I prefer it. I make it like I would drink my tea and it’s delicious and not too dissimilar, in my opinion to black tea when drunk this way.
If you haven’t tried it yet, my favourite is Mighty Matcha and you can buy it easily from Amazon.
You can also buy the bowl and whisk from Amazon.
