1. Add 2 scoops of matcha powder to your tea bowl or cup.

2. Pour around 70ml of not quite boiling water into the tea bowl.

3. Whisk the matcha with a chasen (Japanese bamboo whisk) or a small whisk, for about 15 seconds until smooth and slightly foamy.

Koicha (Thick Matcha):

We recommend storing your matcha in the refrigerator once opened. For the best flavour and colour, we recommend finishing the tin within 8 weeks of opening.
