Unlike most teas, whose leaves are discarded after being infused, matcha is whisked into hot water, with the leaves being entirely consumed. Consuming the leaves provides a number of health benefits, not least of which is a significant Vitamin C boost.
To make matcha, put a half teaspoon of matcha powder in a cup. Add an ounce of water, and whisk into a paste. Then add your liquid and other ingredients, whether it be water, or steamed milk and honey for a delicious matcha latte. When consuming matcha with water, ensure the water is heated to 80 degees celcius. Boiling water can bring out a bitter taste.
