Matcha spoons are a specialized utensil used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. They are small, spoon-like tools made of bamboo or metal, and are used to measure and scoop matcha powder into a bowl or cup.
In this article, we will cover the proper use of a matcha spoon, including how to measure the correct amount of matcha, how to scoop and sift the powder, and how to mix the tea properly.
How to Measure Matcha Powder with a Matcha Spoon
One of the key aspects of preparing matcha tea is using the correct amount of powder.
A matcha spoon scoop of matcha is roughly equivalent to one-third of a standard teaspoon of matcha powder.
To measure the powder using a matcha spoon, follow these steps:
- Scoop the desired amount of matcha powder using the matcha spoon.
- Empty the powder into your tea bowl or cup.
- Repeat until you have the desired amount of powder.
If you do not have a matcha spoon, you can also use a regular spoon or a small scoop to measure the powder.
Just be sure to use a consistent measuring tool so that you can accurately gauge the correct amount of matcha each time.
