How To Make Matcha At Home

Making Matcha: The Modern Method

This is how we make matcha at Amoda. It's pretty easy to start and super easy once you get the hang of it. We use an electric frother instead of a bamboo whisk and we find the effect is even better to get that amazing crema-like foam.

What You Need - A Tall Cup (ideally with a wider bottom), Electric Frother, Matcha, Water

  • 1/2 tsp (1 gram) of matcha powder or 1 tsp for a stronger cup

  • 70ml of water (approx. 2.4 oz or 7 tsp) at approximately 70°C- 80°C (160°F-175°F) 

Preparation

  1. Scoop the matcha powder into the bowl. You can sift the matcha powder into the bowl to remove clumps and help the matcha powder dissolve better.

  2. Add the hot water.

  3. Using the electric frother, create a nice thick foam. Start with the frother at the bottom of the cup and move up to froth just below the surface for 10 seconds.

 


 

Making Matcha: The Traditional Method

What You Need - A Bowl, Whisk, Chashaku, Matcha, Water

  • 1/2 tsp (1 gram) of matcha powder or 1 tsp for a stronger cup

    Using a traditional chashaku tea scoop, this would be a heaping scoop.

  • 70ml of water (approx. 2.4 oz or 7 tsp) at approximately 70°C- 80°C (160°F-175°F) 

Preparation

  1. Scoop the matcha powder into the bowl. You can sift the matcha powder into the bowl to remove clumps and help the matcha powder dissolve better.

  2. Add the hot water.

  3. Using a bamboo whisk, create a nice thick froth by gently whisking in a zig-zag motion for 10-12 seconds.  (in a “W” shaped motion)

  4. It should look something like the photo below.
