How to Serve Matcha Tea
Serve Matcha tea in a bowl or cup, depending on whether you want to drink it straight or add something to it. Either way, you should serve it in a bowl or cup that has enough space for the water and the tea to steep, but not so much space that the water spills over when you put more tea in. Finding bowls that are just the right size for your tea is important so that you don’t have to make adjustments to the temperature of the water when you are serving yourself or others.
Stirring Serving Matcha tea is quite simple to do, just like drinking any other kind of tea. However, if you want to get the most out of your matcha experience, then spending a little bit of time every day stirring your tea and making sure that it is always fresh and ready to drink is ideal. Buying a small electric stick or bamboo stick is ideal for adding honey and lemon juice to your matcha. Then once you have your utensil, all you have to do is stir your sweetener and lemon juice into your hot water until they dissolve. You can also use this technique with sugar and cinnamon buns if you aren’t feeling too fancy. For the most part though, using this method is going to give you the best results when it comes down to preparing and serving up some matcha tea.
Honey Servings With honey, things become a lot easier, as the natural sweetness from the honey will go great with the taste of matcha. For people who aren’t used to having sweeteners in their tea, honey can seem very odd andout of place, but if you don’t mind having something a little bit sweetened then go ahead and enjoy yourself! If you want to get rid of some of the strong green flavour of matcha then drizzle some honey on top of your cup before drinking it will help with removing some of the bitterness. This isn’t recommended though as too much honey can ruin the unique taste of matcha.
Lemon Juice Serving Lemon juice alongside your matcha will enhance many aspects of your experience. The most noticeable difference between lemon juice and no lemon at all is how refreshing it will be. Having freshly squeezed lemon mixed with clear hot water will give you a nice hit from all those essential vitamins and minerals that are found in lemons. But besides giving you a burst of energy due not only from vitamin C but also from L-citrulline which is found in lemons, lemon juice goes great with chocolate as well! Adding some slices onto some plain Greek yogurt will really bring out the best flavors when you are using lemon juice as your mixer. Or if you simply must have something in your cup, then drinking plain yogurt instead will keep everything else than perfect.
