*1 This is a special bamboo teaspoon to measure the portion of matcha powder. Three heaps of this spoon of matcha is equivalent to one normal teaspoon. *2 The hot water temperature should be around 175°F(80°C) If you pour too hot boiling water into the bowl, the matcha will lose the delicate flavour and aroma. *3 As mentioned in the above post FAQ section, you can use any kind of milk you like. The ideal temperature of the milk is 140-160°F(60-70°C). *4 This extra step is to prevent any unpleasant lumps forming. If you don't have a bamboo whisk, the matcha powder needs to be sieved through a fine-mesh sieve. *5 You can add sweetness at this point, into the matcha brewed or add to the milk. *6 If you don't have this type of milk frother, see the post above for more options. You can heat up the milk to the ideal temperature and then use a stick blender. *7 If you cannot draw beautiful latte art, a sprinkle of extra matcha powder is optional.
