How to Prepare Matcha

To prepare usucha, or traditional thin tea, the typical ratio recommended by tea ceremony schools is 2 grams of matcha to 60-80ml of water, depending on the school. A weight measure is used as matcha is a powder and measuring by weight is more accurate than by volume, which can vary depending on how packed the matcha is.

We enjoy and recommend a simple ratio of 1/2 teaspoon of matcha to 3 oz of water. This yields a slightly larger serving of tea than the traditional Japanese recipe. It is also easier to whisk.
