Matcha Shot

Wondering “What is a Matcha Shot?” Read our blog about it here! In this article, we will share how to make a delicious Matcha shot full of healing properties!

There are three main ways to make a Matcha Shot:

  1. Put 1/2 tsp. in a cup or matcha bowl. Add 4 oz warm water. Whisk vigorously with a bamboo whisk. Move the whisk like drawing a letter “Z” while whisking up.
  2. If whisking up is not your thing, a small electric frother will do the job nicely too. Choose an 8 oz or bigger size cup when you make a 4 oz matcha shot. Frothing action raises the water surface like a tornado, and you will end up with a mess if the container is too small.
  3. If you don’t have a bamboo whisk or a frother, no problem! All you need is a lidded mason jar! Just put water and powder in a jar, and put the lid on securely, then shake it up! For a shot, use 4 oz water and 1/2 tsp. Take care with warm water if you use a shaker method – it can ‘pop’ when you open the container. (If you are using hot water, do not use this method as it will cause an explosion.)

For extra zing, add in a bit of freshly grated turmeric root, ginger root, or even horseradish. Each of these roots is noted for their health benefits, including antimicrobial effects, antioxidants, and digestive support. They also each pack a powerful punch of wake-you-up flavor!
