To prepare a serving of matcha, the leaves of a shade-grown green leaf plant have their steams and veins removed and are then blended into a fine powder. The powder is then pushed through a tight sieve using a wooden spatula and whisked into hot water. We visited the tea specialists at Paper & Tea to learn more about the ceremonious traditions of brewing matcha and how to use their Matcha Starter Kit.
