1. Heat water in a kettle until it reaches a temperature of about 175°F - 180°F.
2. While the water is heating, sift 1-2 teaspoons of matcha powder into a bowl.
3. Once the water reaches the right temperature, pour a small amount of hot water into the bowl and use a bamboo whisk to whisk the matcha in a "W" motion until it becomes smooth and frothy.
4. Gradually add more hot water to the bowl, whisking continuously until the mixture is well combined and frothy.
5. Once the matcha is fully whisked, enjoy it immediately by sipping it straight from the bowl.
Note: It's important to use a bamboo whisk to prevent clumping and achieve the perfect frothy consistency. Additionally, traditional matcha is typically enjoyed without any added sweeteners or milk, but you can adjust the amount of water to achieve your preferred taste and consistency.
