I am and always will be a tea drinker. Black, green, white, red, you name it! I’m in! So I don’t know why it took me so long to discover matcha. I guess discover is not the right word–how about try. I had heard of it before, but only recently have tried to make it.
Let me tell you, it is not a drink for the impatient but well worth the work to do it right. This is now my favorite drink. I just have to save it for those mornings I am not rushing off to the office.
If you have not heard of matcha before, check it out. There are quite a lot of videos on social media about how to make it. Be fair warned, though, not all of it is for show. You cannot skip the important steps like sifting the matcha powder or adding just a little water to make a paste. These really are important to avoid a nasty green sludge at the bottom.
If you do all these steps, though, you will have a frothy, warm delight that will add a special something to you day. For me, it is a slice of tranquility that I miss during the work week. If only I could get up earlier–haha, never going to happen!
