Brewing a perfect cup of matcha green tea is easy. We compiled some of Tenzo's trade secrets to make sure your first brew is a success.
1) Add 1 Teaspoon of matcha green tea powder and 2 oz of hot water to a warm round-bottomed Bowl.
2) Use a Bamboo Tea Whisk to make a smooth concentrate
(Whisk briskly with a M / W Motion)
3) Add another 2-6 oz of Water based on your preference in strength for matcha green tea.

To make a matcha green tea latte start with a 2 oz water concentrate and top it off with your favorite milk! We recommend Almond (Vanilla or Natural), Hemp or Soy :)
Traditionally, matcha green tea is prepared in two different styles - Koicha (literally translated to "think tea") and usucha (meaning "thin tea"). The concentration of Matcha to water is the defining point between these two styles of preparation. When preparing koicha, it is best to use a higher quality Matcha with a vibrant color, natural sweetness, and a strong umami tast. A lesser grade Matcha will work just fine for a thin cup of tea, but think or thin, nothing will top a cup of Matcha Premium. At Tenzo Tea, we believe it takes some taste-testing to determine your personal preference when it comes to the perfect cup of matcha green tea.
A bamboo whisk is an essential tool
for breaking up small clumps of matcha green tea and creating a smooth and consistent cup. A bowl or cup with a large surface area will work best once you get to whisking.
