To prepare matcha tea problems
The matcha was extremely bitter…
You either use too hot water, too much rag, or the rag is not stirred effectively. Matcha needs to be stirred until the thick foam with many small bubbles has been realized. If there is a crack in the foam to reveal the liquid below, or if a large bubble is visible on the surface, the taste of matcha will be worse than the proper mixing time.
The matcha doesn’t froth very well…

If this is the case, you need to increase the amount of powder or reduce the amount of water. Please note that when preparing Koicha (thick tablets), it should be prepared without foaming.
The reason for this is simple, because matcha has not been screened. If you sift through matcha that rarely occurs.
