Japanese Green Tea
1. Fill kettle with fresh water, then heat.
2. Warm tea cup or bowl with a little hot water, discard. Pour matcha through a fine-mesh sifter into the cup or bowl (one quarter teaspoon per cup), loosening any clumps. For a thicker cup, increase amount of matcha up to one teaspoon.
3. Pour about 2 ounces of water (fill 1/3 cup of cup or bowl) that is approximately 175 degrees (cooler than boiling) over the tea powder.
4. Whisk rapidly in an M or W formation (as if beating eggs) to make a frothy broth.
5. Add about 4-6 more ounces of the heated water.
