Preparing the perfect bowl of matcha requires a few essential tools. Using a fine mesh stainless steel sifter to remove any lumps will help create a finer froth and a smoother aerated liquid. When matcha is stored in the fridge, lumps may form if it is rapidly brought back to room temperature. The matcha sifter will help restore the powder to a consistent smooth texture. Ensure the sifter is clean and dry before use.
