– Sift the matcha into a mug or small bowl to get rid of any lumps. – Pour in the 2 ounces of the hot water. Using a matcha whisk or small regular whisk, whisk briskly from side to side until the matcha is fully dispersed and there is a foamy layer on top. – Add the remaining 6 ounces hot water or steamed milk and whisk again until foamy.
