Matcha tea is central to Japanese culture. Whether as part of a formal tea ceremony, an ingredient in French-style pastries and desserts – or even savoury noodles – matcha green tea is found on almost every restaurant menu. Matcha tea tastes bitter and earthy, with hints of freshly cut grass. In a tea ceremony you would serve the tea with the contrastingly sweet wasanbon, Japanese sugar sweets. This contrast is why matcha powder is so popular in desserts. 

The most popular style of matcha for drinking is called usucha matcha. You can use half as much water to make a thicker style of matcha tea to serve in a matcha tea ceremony known as koicha. Prepare the matcha green tea powder for drinking in three simple steps:

  1. Measure 2 scoops of matcha powder into a matcha bowl using a matcha spoon, chashaku
  2. Pour over 70ml of hot water and whisk uzing a z-shaped motion until the tea becomes frothy
  3. Drink straight away from the matcha bowl
