All You Need To Enjoy Matcha Tea At HomeBy Stephen M
Matcha is an antioxidant-filled tea with great health benefits. Originating from Japan, many people have enjoyed this traditional tea for several centuries. It is easy to prepare, yet a complex process, and you need to be careful with each step.
To enjoy matcha tea at home, you need the right set of tools to enjoy its wonderful flavor and goodness. Candice Kumai, a chef and author of Kintsugi Wellness, emphasizes the need to have the correct tool when preparing this Japanese powdered green tea. According to him, preparing matcha is more of a ritual. He enjoys it in the morning because it sets the tone for the rest of the day. Kumai’s first matcha tea was from his grandmother, and anytime he prepares it, it feels like a homage to her.
