Matcha is a dense powder due to its’ amazing superfood qualities, which means that it has to be sifted, or it will clump together. Matcha drinkers need a fine mesh strainer in order to create a smooth and delicious cup of matcha tea.
Why sift matcha? Powder tends to clump together naturally. Just as bakers sift the flour before using it in their recipes matcha green tea powder should be sifted before we usage.
The static electricity in the air encourages the matcha powders to stick together and form clumps. Sifting matcha smooths it out and lets it blend better into your drink or cooking recipe.
