Would you like to enjoy Matcha Green Tea by yourself?
You can start with the following items:
an example of tea bowls
Chawan
a tea bowl
an example of tea scoops
Chashaku
a tea scoop
an example of tea whisks
Chasen
a tea whisk
And you also need...
* Matcha green tea powder
  (preferably in a Natsume tea caddy)
* Boiled water
* A Sieve
(optional)

How to make matcha:
1. Put 1 1/2 scoops of matcha using the Chashaku into the Chawan.
2. Break up the lumps of matcha with the Chasen.
   (Better to use a Sieve as it will make the powder thinner.)
3. Gently pour approx. 80C (176F) hot water into the Chawan. (about 1/3 bowl of water)
4. Whisk matcha and water with the Chasen until the surface becomes entirely foamy.
   (Move your wrist quickly back and forth as making 'M' shape in the Chawan
.)
5. Meshiagare (enjoy it!).
