In search of the perfect cup of matcha? You’ve come to the right place!

You’ll need the following supplies:

  • Happy Matcha nourishtea
  • A shallow bowl
  • A teaspoon
  • Bamboo whisk
  • Hot water

Directions:

  1. Measure slightly more than 1/2 a teaspoon of matcha into the shallow bowl.
  2. Boil water, and let sit for a few minutes.
  3. Pour about 1/2 a cup of hot water into the bowl.
  4. Hold the bowl steady with one hand, and the whisk in the other.
  5. Using the motion of your wrist, make gentle zig zagging motions with your wrist.
  6. Pull the whisk along the sides of the bowl to remove any clumps of powder.
  7. Continue whisking until foamy bubbles start to form at the top of the tea. (Around 1 minute of whisking)
Remember, this is your cup of matcha! For a thinner cup, use less matcha, for a more full bodied taste, use more powder. Enjoy!
