Matcha, the healthiest way to drink tea

When you drink Matcha ( powdered green tea ) you consume almost 10 times more anti-oxidants, vitamins, and minerals than a traditional cup of green tea such as Sencha or Tencha. Matcha is a nice alternative to regular tea drinking. Its thicker and Frothy. Its a completely different experience than drinking tea in the normal way. The color is simply amazing. A rich bright green that is just beautiful. The taste of high quality Matcha is unmistakable.

Matcha is green powdered tea. It is uniquely Japanese and is the highest quality tea available in Japan. Usually Young Gyokuro or Tencha leaves. It is sold traditionally in a 30g tin. You will get about 20 cups from the tin. The traditional way to prepare Matcha is about a quarter tea spoon per cup. You can add more if desired. Water needs to be about 170-175 degrees. Not boiling! You can use a bamboo whisk to whisk the matcha in a bowl. Using a spoon will not work. Some people just throw it in a blender but thats not the traditional way lol..Im guilty of doing it that way sometimes. My name is dan by the way and im the owner of purematcha.com

I sometimes reach for my hand frother to whisk the matcha too, this does a decent job of it too. I have even used a fork, and it does blend the matcha adequately, although you don’t get the froth-y consistency that you do when you whisk it.
