[EN]How to prepare:
Pour hot water into the bowl Discard the water. Using a bamboo tea scoop, place 2 teascoops of Matcha into the bowl. Add 90ml of hot water. Briskly whisk the tea using a bamboo whisk. Begin slowly to dissolve the matcha, then move very briskly back and forth as fast as you can in the middle of the tea bowl. Whisk in an “M” or “W” pattern. The whisk should be vertical and barely touching the bottom of the bowl. When a soft light foam has developed, slowly lift the whisk from the center of the bowl. Drink right away, before the powdered leaves have time to settle again. Matcha is traditionally served with a small sweet.

Verter un dedo de agua caliente en el bowl. Tirar el agua. Poner 2 cucharditas de Matcha utilizando la cuchara de bambú (chashaku) y añadir 90ml  de agua caliente (90ºC). En seguida batir con el batidor de bambú (chasen) primero moviendo lentamente para disolver el matcha y luego más rápido hasta obtener espuma. Intentar dibujar con el movimiento una "M" o "W". El chasen debe mantenerse vertical, sin apretarlo hacía abajo. Una vez se obtenga abundante espuma, subir la batidora lentamente desde el centro del bowl. El Matcha ya está listo y debe tomarse enseguida. Tradicionalmente, Matcha se sirve acompañado de un dulce.
