  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoon of 158°F (70°C) water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
  1. Heat milk in a small pan over medium heat
  2. Optional: add sugar when the milk is getting warm (can dissolve more easily)
  3. Sift matcha into a small bowl with sifter to remove clumps of powder
  4. Pour 2 tablespoon of 158°F (70°C) water into the small bowl, whisk rapidly in a W motion using your wrist with [easyazon_link identifier="B013GMM3US" locale="US" tag="nomrec-20" localize="y"]bamboo whisk[/easyazon_link] until froth with many tiny bubbles begin to appear on the surface
  5. Heat milk up to 158°F - 176°F (70°C – 80°C) until small bubbles on the edge appear, do NOT let it boil
  6. Froth milk with milk frother until foamy, or pour milk into a closed bottle and shake it until foam appears
  7. Pour matcha tea into a cup and pour in the milk, serve immediately!
It is very important to sift the matcha as matcha tends to form lumps during storage. Sifting will help you get a smoother and finer froth without any bitter lumps of green tea powder.

You may cool down boiling water by pouring it back and forth between two cups.

The temperature of water, quantity of matcha, and whisking actions must be followed strictly to avoid watery or bitter tasting matcha tea.
