Tea parties might feel awkward and there aren't many opportunities to make matcha, but in reality, with a little practice, you'll be able to make it with ease. Why not enjoy some tea or matcha at home?
To make things easier, it's recommended to shake the matcha up first, as this will keep it from clumping. Put a dose (1½ - 2 cups if using the tea scoop, 1 cup (about 1.5 grams) if using the teaspoon) of matcha in the strainer. Use your tea scoop or tea spoon to sift the matcha.
Boil the water (even if it's mineral water). Take a dose (about 70cc's) of boiled water from the measuring cup and put it in the tea bowl. 80 degrees Celsius (176 deg. Fahrenheit) is the right temperature. In summer, you should move the water back and forth twice and in winter, just once.
First, loosen any matcha that sank to the bottom and start whisking it. Next, bring the whisk up from the bottom a little and make like you're writing the letter "M", moving your wrist back and forth. Lastly, when it starts bubbling, draw a "9" with the whisk and slowly take it out to finish. For the somewhat strong matcha, put it in water and enjoy cool matcha.
