How to Make Matcha Tea

How to Make Matcha Tea

Making and drinking matcha tea is a great way to get your green tea fix, especially if you are new to the tea drinking scene. Before we get into how to make matcha tea, we need to learn about what matcha is.

What is Matcha?

Matcha is the leaves of a plant called Camellia sinensis that are ground into a fine powder. Then when you are making your matcha tea, you add boiling water and whisk until the foam forms before you drink it. This process is known as whisking and can be done using just a fork, but I recommend using a whisk instead because it covers more surface area and you will get rid of more nutrients that way.

Why Would You Want to Make Matcha Tea?

Making matcha tea can be pretty expensive when you look at it compared to buying the pre-made stuff at the store, but if you think about it for a while, there are some good reasons why you would want to make your own matcha tea.

Less Artificial Ingredients

When you buy your matcha at the store, there are usually lots of other things that they put in there that aren’t listed on the label. These things can include flavourings, sugars and chemicals that can make your food taste better or give it different textures. When you make your own food, you have control over everything that goes into it, so you can add whatever extras you want to give it that special flavour or texture.

Less Costly

Having troubles finding cheap enough cereal grains in order to make your own batch of Matcha? Using whole grains will significantly increase the cost of making this tea, but if you still want to use whole grains despite these costs, that’s completely fine! You can still come out with a tasty cup of tea and have yourself a nice little meditation session while you are sitting down to drink it.

You Can Customise It Any Way You Want

When you buy your matcha from the store, they typically don’t care too much about how thick or thin they make it, as long as its red colour looks good. However, if you decide thatyou like thicker or thinner matches, then go for it! This stuff is totally customisable and has plenty of room for error since its very easy to accidentally mess up some things when you are cooking with hot liquids.

How Long Does It Take?

Usually when I make my matcha drinks at home, it takes around ten minutes from start to finish. However, depending on what kind of stove top pottery machine ive got going on (its gas), then times may vary greatly. Also keep in mind that when you are working with hot liquids, things tend not to happen as quickly as when something is cold outside of the fridge or freezer door gets stuck when opening).
