In today's fast-paced world, finding moments of tranquility and indulging in a cup of matcha can be a soothing experience. But what if you're always on the move, without access to the usual tools needed to prepare matcha? Fret not! We'll show you how to make matcha on the go, without using any special tools. With just a few simple ingredients and a little creativity, you'll be able to enjoy a delicious and rejuvenating cup of matcha wherever your adventures take you.
What You'll Need:
- 3 Leaf Tea Matcha
- A small, sturdy bottle with a lid
- Optional: sweetener of your choice (e.g., honey, agave syrup)
Measure the Matcha
Start by measuring your desired amount of matcha. A typical serving size is about 1 teaspoon, but you can adjust according to your taste preferences, or by measuring what feels right. Add matcha into a small bottle.
Fill the small container or bottle with about 2oz water, leaving some space at the top to ensure you can get a good shake.
Seal and Shake
Securely close the bottle's lid to avoid any leakage, and then give it a good shake. The aim is to thoroughly mix the matcha powder and water, creating a smooth and vibrant green concoction. Shake for about 15-20 seconds, ensuring there are no clumps remaining.
Open the bottle and pour in your desired amount of honey, agave syrup, or any other sweetener you enjoy. Give it another shake to blend the sweetener with the matcha mixture.
Top it off
Once you have your "matcha shot" top it off with extra water, or milk to make it a latte. You can add ice for an iced latte or heat your milk up for a hot latte.
Now that your matcha is ready, it's time to savor it. Take a moment to appreciate the rich aroma and vibrant color of your homemade matcha. You can either drink it straight from the bottle or pour it into a cup if you prefer. Take small sips and let the earthy and soothing flavors envelop your senses.
- If you're traveling, consider using a thermal bottle to maintain the desired temperature of your matcha for a longer duration.
- Experiment with the water-to-matcha ratio to find the taste that suits you best. You can adjust the amount of matcha or water according to your personal preference.
- Feel free to get creative with the sweeteners by using alternatives like stevia or maple syrup. Remember to add them gradually and adjust to taste.
With just a bottle, some high-quality matcha, water, and a touch of sweetness (if desired), you can experience the tranquility and numerous health benefits of matcha wherever you may be. So the next time you're embarking on an adventure or in need of a quick pick-me-up, whip up a refreshing cup of matcha using this on-the-go method. Enjoy the journey and embrace the serenity that matcha brings to your day!
