Step 1: Choose thin or thick tea powder Choose thin or thick tea powder when making your purchase. Tip Thin tea is made with tea powder from younger tea plants while thick tea powder comes from older plants. Thick tea tends to be sweeter and smoother than thin tea, which is slightly bitter. Step 2: Add the tea powder to hot water Add one heaping teaspoon of green tea powder to one cup of hot water -- about 120-140 degrees Fahrenheit -- in the ceramic bowl. Tip Never use boiling water when preparing matcha. Step 3: Mix the tea Stir or whisk the mixture until it becomes frothy. Continue mixing until no tea powder remains on the sides or bottom of the bowl. Step 4: Drink the tea Drink the tea from the bowl before the tea powder settles. Did You Know? Because the tea leaves are consumed, matcha contains more vitamins and antioxidants than steeped green tea.
