In my second-ever YouTube video (there’s another sneaky video on the channel already so go check it out) I share how to make matcha at home. I’ve been wanting to get into YouTube for a while so I’m excited to get started on this project.
I love matcha and I talk about it with friends quite often. Matcha’s become quite popular over the last few years so the interest is high, but many folks seem hesitent to dive in on their own. I made this video as a resource I can share with friends and with the internet at large so everyone can see just how easy it is to make matcha!
Since I do make use of traditional tea utensils (whisk and scoop) in this video, I plan on making another video with some more commonplace kitchen alternatives. I don’t want anyone feeling left out of the at-home matcha game, so don’t worry.
In this video, I cover the following topics:
- The basic tools and utensils you need to make matcha
- Preparing your tools before you start brewing
- How to properly sift and whisk matcha
- Cleaning up and maintaining your tools
If you feel there’s anything I left out of this video, please let me know in the video comments or here below. If you have any other remaining questions, I’d love to hear from you as well. I’m actively thinking about ideas for new videos and I’ll take all the help I can get!
Here’s a list of the links I include in the video description
- Matcha is Zuisho, from Shogyokuen (Heritage Grade, 40g)
- Jade Leaf Matcha Starter Kit (No Matcha or Bowl)
