Christmas Travels & Matcha Tea Break

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.  We had all our kids, their spouses and grand kids here on Christmas Day.  Only our eldest grandson was not present.  We traveled to Vidalia, GA to visit with him on Christmas Eve.  We took him to Savannah for a little shopping and lunch.

It was great to see him, although I became ill the day before and spent most of our visit lying in the back seat of the car while they walked around River Street and when they had lunch at Olive Garden.  Seems to be a lot of it going around right now.  

One of my gifts from hubby was a matcha tea bowl and some organic Kenko matcha green tea.  

I already had a bamboo whisk and measuring utensil. I've found that it will take a little practice to master the whisking technique and the proper measure of tea for my taste.  It is very relaxing though, to sip from the bowl and know that I'm doing something positive for my health at the same time.  

Do any of you matcha drinkers have any tips on preparation or the tea itself?  One thing I forgot to do was sift the powder before adding water and I found it difficult to remove the lumps.  

Here are some good reasons to try matcha tea:

(as printed on the Kenko tin)  
- 137 times the antioxidants of regular green tea
- boost your metabolism
- improve focus & clarity
- natural energy boost

Let me know if you become a matcha master ... I have certainly never mastered the art of whisking my own matcha, so I wish you luck! (And Happy New Year, Maureen!)
