TIPS and Know-How
- Temperature matters. Heat brings out the bitter flavors in matcha. Ice
will bring out the sweetness and the rich creamy mouth feel unique to
- Use best quality water and iced-cubes available.
Adjust proportions to taste.
- Drink up immediately. Matcha tea does not technically “dissolve” but
rather “suspends” in liquid. After a while, the tea will float to the bottom
and your beverage will separate.
