○A Maccha teacup, a tea whisk and a sieve
○A tea scoop or measuring spoon
○A cup or mug to cool the boiled water
|If you use sieve to sift the Maccha powder, it makes it easier to create smooth foam.
|Put 2 tea scoops of Maccha, about 1.7g, in the mug
|Pour one third (70~80cc) of the hot water with a temperature of around 80 degrees C.
With the opposite of your dominant hand, hold the teacup firmly. With the index, middle finger, and thumb of your dominant hand, hold the tea whisk’s bamboo handle.
At first, mix the tea powder very gently in the water, then in a repeating motion, move your wrist back and forth to mix it well. At the end, move the tea whisk elegantly to smooth out the surface of the tea and then take the whisk out very slowly.
|It is done when the surface of the tea is covered with very creamy foam.
