Drinking Tea Begins with Steeping Tea: 1. Fill the kettle with fresh, filtered water and heat to just short of boiling. 2. Fill Matcha bowl or cup with warm water and pour out. 3. Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Matcha powder to bowl or cup. Add 6 oz of hot water. Experiment to find your favored strength. 4. Using a tea whisk, whisk briskly for a minute or two until the Matcha forms a nice green colored foam. Enjoy sip by sip.
