Aoarashi Matcha Tea
A strong flavoured and slightly bitter tea, perfect for making matcha lattes.
How to Make the Perfect Matcha Latte:
We recommend you use not quite boiling water, around 80°C works well.
If you are using a chashaku (a Japanese bamboo teaspoon) we recommend 4 scoops, or 2 scoops from an ordinary teaspoon (approx. 3g)
Pass your matcha powder through a tea strainer into your tea bowl or cup.
Pour around 60ml of not quite boiling water into the tea bowl.
Whisk this for around 15 seconds with a chasen (Japanese bamboo whisk) or a small whisk. It should be smooth and slightly foamy.
Pour in the warm milk of your choice (we recommend soy milk) and enjoy!
