Sounds an excellent plan.
I really need someone to teach me how to drink Japanese Green Tea properly, the directions on the box say to pour the macha after its done brewing. But how do I know which is the macha and how do I know to only pour that out and not the other great tea stuff that's in it... eek too afraid.
I'm happy to help walk you through it sometime ^_^
This is the tea I drink, it is a blend of macha and sencha. It says on instructions to brew 30 seconds in 70 degree water, then stir then open tea bag and pour on the macha in, but the thing is, that doesn't make sense, because how do i pour one and not the other... that is where I am confused. please help ^^
I agree those are confusing instructions. Matcha & Sencha are a strange blend for a teabag, because usually matcha is made by whisking powder directly with water, and sencha is steeped like regular tea leaves.
I assume you're making this directly in a mug or cup? I'd use this like a regular tea bag, but bounce it up and down by the string to help the matcha mix with the water. You can even use a spoon to squish the bag more. Just make sure to remove the bag after 30 seconds because green tea gets bitter when oversteeped.
I wouldn't open the teabag unless you're brewing it in a teapot that has a strainer, or using a basket style infuser. When I drink matcha/sencha blended I use a french press - the matcha gets thick and creamy and the sencha stays in the strainer where it belongs - at that point you might as well skip the teabags all together and buy loose leaf tho.
