Here is the basic way to prepare a bowl of Matcha. Be sure to view the video as well to further assist you in whisking the perfect froth for your Matcha green tea. You may need a couple tries in the beginning to make a nice creamy froth but once you get the hang of it, the satisfaction of attaining perfection will bring you joy as you relax to enjoy a nice healthy and wholesome bowl of Matcha made just by you. 1.Before adding hot water to Matcha, it is recommended that Matcha is sifted using a tea strainer or a sifter to avoid clumps of Matcha from forming in the tea. 2.Place about two bamboo tea scoops (1/2 to 1 tsp.) of Matcha powder in the bowl.
3.Add 2 to 3 oz. of pre-boiling water to the bowl (~180F / ~80C). Boiling water may not be the most suitable for Matcha because it does not bring out the best flavor and the natural mild sweetness of the tea. 4.Depending on personal preference, add more water to adjust for desired taste. 100% Benefit from the Leaf 100% Benefit from the Leaf Typically, Matcha is the only tea variety that is ground into fine powder form for a reason. When drinking Matcha or enjoying a food or beverage made from Matcha - you consume the entire tea leaf. This is the main difference between Matcha and all other tea. Normally black tea or other green teas are consumed via steeping the tea leaves infused with hot water. Steeped tea is only a single soluble extract of the tea leaves - the leaves stay in the tea pot and will be disposed afterwards. Only a small part of the health benefits of tea are water soluble. Depending on the tea variety and preparation, only 10% - 20% of the healthy nutrients are consumed when drinking steeped tea. Insoluble Fiber Insoluble Fiber- - 100% benefits from eating the whole leaf 100% benefits from eating the whole leaf Matcha is made by grinding the entire tea leaf into powder, all of those nutrients and benefits regular tea bags carry away stay right in the cup for the drinking. This ensures that Matcha drinkers consume a higher concentration of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibers than other tea at once. One of the highlight nutrients which we can take from Matcha but not from steeped tea is Insoluble Fiber. One study shows that the effect of lowering blood sugar from Catechin (EGCG) is enhanced if we take both water-soluble and water-insoluble fiber together with Catechins. Drinking steeped tea will only benefit us with less than 10% of the entire nutrients from the tea leaf, but drinking Matcha gives us 100% of the nutrients. This means that one bowl of Matcha is equivalent to approx. 10 cups of regular green tea. Amazingly, there is no known fruit or vegetable in the world that provides more antioxidants than Matcha on a per gram basis. It is literally the healthiest drink nature has to offer, providing us with 100% natural energy. For more information please visit http://www.aiyamatcha.com
