Crazy About Matcha

What Is Matcha?

The word “Matcha” is a transliteration from the Japanese word mat-cha (抹茶). Mat (抹) means “to grind” and cha (茶) means “tea.”

And that’s the beauty of matcha; you are left with this vibrant green powder, and when you dissolve and whisk that into hot water you are left with a tea that houses the benefits of the entire tea leaf.


Matcha Basics

How to get the perfect cup of matcha at home:

  1. Put 1 tsp of matcha in a bowl

  2. Heat-up 50ml of water to 175ºF

  3. Add a touch of the hot water to the bowl and slightly whisk the matcha and water to create a paste

  4. Once the paste is formed, pour in the rest of the water and whisk thoroughly (until a frothy foam appears on top of the matcha)

  5. Strain the matcha into your cup

  6. Enjoy 🍵

Pro tips:

  • Whisk in a circular and zig-zag motion to create a thick foam

  • Pair with milk for a creamy matcha latte

  • Pair with fruit and ice for refreshing iced matcha

Health Benefits

Matcha is commonly referred to as a super-tea: it contains the amino acid L-theanine, which is released to counteract the caffeine found in matcha, creating an alert-yet-calm effect throughout your day. Truly, what more could we want? ✨
