Organic Vanilla Matcha
Matcha tea is a type of green tea that is finely ground into a powder, and has been used for centuries in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies. Drinking matcha tea has numerous health benefits due to its high concentration of antioxidants and nutrients. Matcha contains a rare amino acid called L-theanine, which promotes relaxation and reduces stress. It also contains a natural source of caffeine which provides a sustained energy boost without the jitters that come with coffee. Matcha is also rich in chlorophyll, which can help detoxify the body and improve overall health. Regular consumption of matcha tea has been linked to improved brain function, reduced inflammation, and a lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.
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.
