High in antioxidants, Matcha green tea offers many great health benefits and calming effects. Since matcha is in the form of a finely ground powder, the way we make it is very different from the way to prepare loose-leaf green teas. In Japan, special tea utensils are used to prepare matcha. The main tea utensils you need to make matcha are: tea bowl, whisk, scoop. The alternative utensils are whisk holder to keep the bristles in good shape and a fine sieve which helps to remove powdered lumps.
Remember to use hot water (185F/85C), not boiling. Otherwise the tea will become bitter.
