How To Make The Perfect Cup of Matcha - Firebelly Tea

Matcha has really made a name of itself in the last few years and can be found in anything from ice cream to smoothies, icing, and more. While it can be enjoyed in many unique ways, our focus is on the simplest way to enjoy it: by whisking it into hot water to create a frothy, nourishing tea. Matcha is both energizing and calming, with its preparation process being the cherry on top of its deliciousness.

Matcha is Japanese green tea leaves ground into a powder. To make matcha, you need a whisk - either a hand whisk or a battery-powered one. Next, you need to put about a half teaspoon of matcha into your matcha bowl. 

Boil your water, but then take the lid off and let it cool until there's no more steam coming off the top. With matcha tea you want your water to be a little bit cooler. This is the difference between having it taste amazing, and it having a bitter taste.

Then, fill the cup about halfway up and whisk it until the powder dissolves. 

If you want to match latte, you can add some frothy milk of your choice on top.

You can even make it a premium matcha latte by adding honey, chocolate, cinnamon, or vanilla.
