 HOW TO MAKE A TRADITIONAL MATCHA (WITH WATER)

Take 1 scoop (around 1/2 a teaspoon) of Matcha and place into the included tea strainer which sits on top of the Tea Shaker (with lid removed). Note: 2 scoops of Matcha will provide a much deeper, fuller bodied taste, reminiscent of tea experienced in Japanese Tea Ceremony.

Scoop of Matcha

Push the Matcha through the tea strainer into the shaker. This ensures the Matcha powder is nice and fine with no lumps. 

Push Matcha through sieve

Remove the tea strainer and fill shaker with around 120 ml (1/2 cup) of water or milk and close the cap tightly (optimum temperature is 80 degrees). Shake the bottle about 10-20 times from up to down. Make sure the cap, silicon ring and bottle are tightly shut. 

Shake Matcha

Pour the Matcha into a cup or bowl to enjoy.
