How to Use Matcha Tea Tools to get the Best Results

If you enjoy drinking matcha tea, then you might have heard about using matcha tea tools to enhance the taste of your tea. While matcha vending machines are becoming more and more popular, they can sometimes have quite a bit of sugar and other additives that aren’t mentioned on the package. Using a tool to enhance the taste of your tea is pretty common, and many people have done it with little to no knowledge of how it works or what they are doing. Here are a few ways that you can use matcha tea tools to get the best results when preparing your own perfect cup of Matcha Tea.

Use a Strainer

A strainer is definitely one of the best ways that you can use a matcha tea tool. When you boil water for iced tea or hot tea, these kinds of teas tend to float around in the water because of how dense they are. Using a strainer when you prepare your tea not only will give you a better cuppa, but it also can trap some of the flavour particles that we find inTea that help make your drink taste the way that it does.

If you decide to go with using a filtered water source, then using a strainer before pouring the boiling water over your leaves really helps pull all of the flavour elements out of the leaves and into your drink. Remember not to leave any pieces sitting in the bottom of the bowl after you strain your leaves, as those pieces can become infested with bacteria and yeasts and ruin whatever else is stored in that container.

Use Coffee Filters

Coffee filters are another great way to use a matcha tea tool. Having fresh coffee every single day is something that I don’t think too many people can handle, so using filters to save yourself from having to buy new filters all too often is incredibly useful. Whether you plan on keeping up with using coffee filters every single day, or just want to save money by not having to buy new filters every month, this is an excellent way to ensure that doesn’t have to happen if he uses his moka pot enough. (which is still very much possible)

Filter Your Tea

Using a filter when you steep your tea gives it a smoother taste and reduces the amount of dirt and particulates that are in your drink. This isn’t such a big deal when you are just brewing up a couple cups for yourself, but if you plan on making iced tea or giving some away as gifts; then pulling out lots of pitchers and going through lots of ice and dirt isn’t something that anyone wants to do. Leaving out some particulate matter isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as those particulates can include nutrients that are beneficial for humans consumption. However, if you plan on giving someone else iced tea made with filtered water, there might be less nutrients available for them to consume than if they would have just drunk regular tap water. So performing basic cleaning on your moka pot every once in awhile is definitely encouraged!

Pour Some Hot Water over Your Strainer

This step is pretty simple and common sense, but pouring some hot water over your strainer will wash away some of the dust particles that may be hanging around inside of it. Just make sure not to put too much hot water onto it or else you run the risk of scolding yourself next time you make iced tea! That said, this step isn’t necessary at all if you clean your moka pot frequently enough… right?

As was mentioned before, leaving behind any pieces in your filter could lead to an infestation later on down the line. Making sure that everything is cleaned up and ready to go before storing it is highly recommended. If you store things loosely in containers like most people do, then chances are high that things will get knocked around quite a bit and attract bugs over time. Make sure that everything is stored properly upright in jars or bottles until next time!
