Hello, How are you doing? This is a Brand Manager of Asahiyaki Shop & Gallery.
Under the influence of COVID-19, Stay Home. It’s continuing the days, not to be able to see you. In times like this, enjoying a tea time to relax our mind is extremely important. Gathering and having a tea time with your friends should be happy in normal situation, but now I think it’s necessary to calm our mind and face ourselves by having tea time.
I would like to introduce “Stay Home, Enjoy Matcha” , the way for enjoying your own matcha at home.
Four procedures for enjoyment: Setting, Cleaning, Making, Drinking
What you need:
Tea bowl, Bamboo whisk, Matcha ( 2-4g, about a scoop), Boiled water(70ml), Room temp water(5ml)
Thermos, Measuring spoon, Waste water container, Favorite sweets, Cloth, Tray
Place them in the easy-to-use place around you.
Pour plenty of boiled water into the tea bowl to warm it up.
Discard water and wipe it with cloth.
A scoop of Matcha. Lumps are unnecessary to sift with a tea strainer.
Put matcha in the bowl
Pour a small amount of water in it and knead with whisk gently.
Pour hot water over it and whisk quickly.
Repeat to move the wrist back and forth, lastly take it up from the bottom gradually. This is one of the key point to make smooth matcha.
Have some sweets first, then enjoy green tea aroma.
Cover your face with matcha bowl to enjoy aroma, and drink it all, divided into several times.
Appreciation for the precious tea and drink up. Of course no lumps are left with this procedure.
I would like to let you know “Make matcha” simply in this article.Something interests are there in the tea world.
“Stay Home , Enjoy Green Tea♪”
Three points that I would like to mention are below:
・Warm the tea bowl very well because of using room temp water when kneading powder.
・Boil water once, even for kneading. ( remove the smell of chlorine)
・Of course, it is the same in whisking matcha. Boil the water before use is necessary to remove chlorine
