How to make Matcha


How to make a cup/bowl of Matcha. Recipe: 3 to 4 grams of Matcha if you are making "Usucha (or Ousu)" 5 to 6 grams of Matcha if you are making "Koicha" 1/3 a cup (or 60ml to 70 ml) of hot water at 80 degrees centigrade (176 F) Both Usucha and Koicha are proper Matcha, but the difference is in how much tea you "can" use without making the Matcha bitter. In general, Koicha is the more expensive matcha, which is suited for a thick rich bowl of matcha. Usucha, is the lesser expensive, more common matcha, and is suited for a lighter (thinner) bowls of matcha.
