Description

Matcha Tea Spoon

The Matcha Tea Spoon or chashaku is used to measure the Matcha tea powder in a Matcha bowl. Made from bamboo, the size of a Matcha Spoon is such that 2 scoops of the powdered Matcha tea equates to about 1 teaspoon of Matcha powder, which is how much is used for a single serving of Matcha tea. While you can measure your powdered tea in several ways, many who want to prepare Matcha in the traditional way, will use the chashaku and the bamboo whisk.

Preparing Matcha Tea

To prepare Matcha, measure 2 Matcha tea spoons (chashaku), or 1 teaspoon of Matcha powder, into a Matcha bowl or other small bowl of about 6-8″ in diameter and not too deep. You need room to use the Matcha whisk in “W” motion but don’t use too large of a bowl. You can use a small, fine sifter to help get rid of any clumps until you perfect the technique of using the whisk to break up the clumps.

Boil fresh water, and allow to set for a minute or so until the water temperature drops to about 180-185 degrees. Pour “3 gulps” or about 6 oz of the hot water into the bowl with the Matcha powder. Holding the bowl in one hand and the Matcha whisk in the other, slowly whisk in a “W” motion using your wrist, not your arm, increasing the speed as the powder gets thoroughly wet and blended into the water. Continue for one to two minutes until frothy. You can lift the whisk up slightly as the tea starts to get a bit frothy, allowing the tea to get properly blended without splashing out of the bowl. What done, slowly remove the whisk from the bowl and set aside.

When blended, drink the Matcha tea straight from the bowl. You do not let the Matcha settle or it will separate. Unlike other teas, Matcha is drank right after preparing.
