How to make or prepare matcha green tea

Traditional way (Using a bowl)


  • Tea bowl
  • Bamboo whisk
  • Measuring ladle
  • Strainer
  • Matcha powder ( 1 to 2 teaspoon)
  • Water (1 cup or 8 ounces)


  • Take the powder in the strainer
  • Shake it well to ensure it is free of clumps and then sift it into the bowl
  • Take hot water in a cup and after it has cooled to 180 – 190 °C pour it into the bowl having the matcha powder. Do not add the green tea to the boiling water as its grassy taste will get more intense.
  • Whisk the mixture in a circular, zigzag motion for about 10 to 15 seconds till your tea has attained a bright, green color.
  • You can pour it in a teacup or directly drink it from the bowl.
  • Add honey or any sweetener since it has a grass-like taste.
  • To get an aromatic flavor, you can even add pieces of chopped or ground ginger for a matcha ginger tea.
