Akashi is the most popular Matcha quality and unites all the good qualities of a Matcha: rich flavor, brisk, mild, delicate and smooth. Beautifully vivid green color.
Boil fresh, soft water.
Let the water cool down to 80°C (e.g. open kettle and wait for 10 min or pour the water at least 4-5 times into another cold pot – water looses 4-5° C with each decanting).
Put 1g Matcha (2 bamboo scoops or ½ tea scoop) into the Matcha bowl.
Add up 80ml of hot (80°C) water.
Whisk the tea with a Matcha whisk until a fine froth appears. It will take you around 15 seconds to prepare your cup of Matcha tea.
