Ingredients (serves 1):
- 1 Tbsp. matcha green tea powder
- 1/3 cup hot water (175°F)
- Matcha bowl (chawan) or a large mug
- Bamboo matcha whisk (chasen) or milk frother
Fill Zojirushi water boiler & warmer with water and set temperature to 175°F.
Place matcha powder into the matcha bowl (chawan).
When the water temperature reaches 175°F, dispense 1/3 cup of the hot water into the matcha bowl. (If using a tea kettle to boil the water pour the boiling water into a separate cup first, then pour that water into the bowl. This will cool the hot water to a suitable temperature.)
Hold the bowl with one hand, and whisk the tea with the matcha whisk rapidly in a zigzag pattern at the center of the bowl, until the powder is dissolved and the tea is topped with thick foam. You may use a milk frother in place of a matcha whisk.
Drink immediately before the powder settles at the bottom of the cup.
