How to Prepare Matcha
To prepare matcha you should use a matcha bowl and whisk.
The chashaku (bamboo matcha spoon) is not necessary. Some customers, however, enjoy using the chashaku as it adds to the ritual effect of preparing the tea. The bamboo spoon comes with our tea ceremony set.
Use pure or distilled water for optimum results. For strong (thick) tea use one level teaspoon for 4 to 6 ounces of water. For medium (thin) tea use half or one quarter that amount. First put the powdered tea in the bowl. Then pour hot (not boiling) water over the leaves.
Whisk the tea into a rich froth!
