How to make
- Sift or put matcha powder into a cup.

Tip: Cup with wide base is preferred as it gives enough space for proper whisking and there is less risk of the cup tipping over. Japanese tea ceremonies use Chawan bowls to drink Matcha tea. These are wide and do not have handles. At home, any cup or glass with wide based is good to use.
- Whisk vigorously until there are no lumps and uniform foam or fine froth with tiny bubbles is formed.
- Add warm, frothed or steamed milk and serve

- If allergic to normal milk or vegan option is preferred, use Oat, Almond, or coconut milk.
Relax and Enjoy!
Matcha is highly potent in antioxidants and is known to heal the body – physically and mentally, and may even assist in curing chronic diseases. Matcha has caffeine but it does not give you jitters like coffee due to the presence of l-theanine, which has a calming effect. Make this matcha powder part of your daily healthy lifestyle and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.
Note that organic Rapadura sugar is completely unrefined sugar (as opposed to white or even brown sugar) that is rich in iron and minerals.
