The Matcha Essentials Bundle

Before we dive into the art of making matcha, let’s talk about the Matcha Essentials Bundle. This bundle is perfect for both seasoned matcha lovers and those just starting their matcha journey. It includes:

  • Kato Matcha Summer Harvest - 40g tin: A high-quality matcha with a smooth, mellow flavor perfect for daily enjoyment.
  • Kato Matcha Whisk - 80 prong: A traditional bamboo whisk designed to create a smooth, frothy texture.
  • Kato Matcha Dosing Scoop: For measuring the perfect amount of matcha powder every time.
  • Genuine Tea Drawstring Canvas Tote: Handy for storing your matcha essentials or for on-the-go use.

Step-by-Step Guide to Making Perfect Matcha

1. Measure Your Matcha: Start by using the Kato Matcha Dosing Scoop to measure the right amount of matcha powder. Typically, one to two scoops (or one to two teaspoons) is ideal for a standard cup.

2. Sift the Matcha: Sift your matcha powder into a bowl to prevent clumps. This ensures a smooth, lump-free consistency in your tea.

3. Add Water: Heat water to just under boiling (about 80°C). Add a small amount of water (around 30 ml) to the sifted matcha powder.

4. Whisk It Up: Now, take your Kato Matcha Whisk and start whisking the matcha and water. Whisk briskly in a "W" or "M" motion until the tea becomes frothy and there are no lumps left. The goal is to achieve a smooth, creamy texture.

5. Add More Water or Milk: Once you've achieved a smooth paste, add more hot water or milk to fill your cup. You can adjust the amount to suit your taste preference.

6. Enjoy Your Matcha: Sip and enjoy your perfectly whisked matcha, rich in flavour and full of health benefits.

Tips for the Perfect Cup

  • Quality Matters: Always start with high-quality matcha, like the Kato Matcha Summer Harvest, to ensure a great-tasting cup.
  • Temperature is Key: Too hot water can make matcha taste bitter. Aim for 80°C water temperature for the best results.
  • Practice Makes Perfect: Don't worry if your first few attempts aren't perfect. With practice, your whisking technique will improve.

Conclusion

Making the perfect cup of matcha is both an art and a pleasure. With the Matcha Essentials Bundle, you have all the tools you need to start your matcha-making journey. Whether you’re enjoying a quiet morning or need an afternoon pick-me-up, a cup of matcha is sure to delight.
