This month we’ve succumbed to matcha madness and everything is bright green at Lahloo! If you haven’t tried matcha yet and you live in Bristol, pop to Lahloo Pantry at 10am, as they’ll be offering free matcha samples every morning, or keep an eye out for our matcha guerrilla across town! It’s also the best time to stock your cupboard, as we’re offering a 20% off matcha these days.
We’ve asked Holly at Lahloo Pantry for some tips to prepare the best matcha and here’s our guide!
1. Place one heaped teaspoon of matcha in a bowl.
2. Add a splash of boiled water cooled to 80C. This is important to avoid burning the tea and therefore to preserve all its goodness and flavour!
3. Whisk until frothy. This will be your base.
For a traditional bowl of matcha, top up with water boiled and cooled to 80C
Whisk again until frothy.
A thick layer of broth and many tiny bubbles on the surface – perfect bowl of matcha!
But if you fancy an iced matcha instead, simply add some cold water and ice to the base. Delicious!
Or add cold milk for a creamy iced matcha latte.
