How to prepare Matcha tea 🍵

Matcha tea, known for its rich flavor and health benefits, has become increasingly popular in Spain. If you're new to the world of matcha, this guide will take you through the steps to making the perfect cup of this exquisite drink.

What is Matcha?

Matcha is a special type of green tea powder. Unlike other teas, matcha involves consuming the whole ground leaf, which offers unique nutritional benefits.

Steps to Prepare Matcha:

1. Select Quality Matcha:

Start by choosing a ceremonial quality matcha. A good matcha usually has a vibrant green color and a fresh aroma.

2. Tools Needed:

Make sure you have a ceramic matcha bowl (chawan), a bamboo spoon (chashaku), and a bamboo whisk (chasen). If you don't have traditional tools, you can also prepare it with an electric frother.

3. Measure the Matcha:

Use the bamboo spoon to measure 1 to 2 grams of matcha, depending on your intensity preference.

4. Add Hot Water:

Heat water to about 80°C. Pour a small amount over the matcha. It is equivalent to approximately one minute of microwave time.

5. Mix with the Whisk:

Use the whisk to mix the matcha and water in a "W" motion until the mixture is smooth and lightly foamed on the surface.

6. Enjoy the Moment:

Savor your matcha slowly to fully appreciate its unique and energizing flavor.

What Benefits does Matcha Tea have?

  • Antioxidants: Matcha is rich in antioxidants that help fight free radicals.

  • Sustained Energy: Unlike coffee, matcha provides a more sustained energy release without spikes and dips.

  • Mental Relaxation: Contains L-theanine, an amino acid that promotes relaxation and concentration.
