How long does a cup of Matcha last?
Matcha lasts about one year on the shelf. If you have matcha that has ‘expired’ we recommend baking with it. Once matcha is opened, it really should be used up within three or four weeks — or, if we really want to push it, no longer than eight weeks to ensure optimum freshness, color, and taste.

Can you drink a cup of Matcha everyday?
Possible side effects of matcha Matcha doesn’t appear to cause significant side effects when consumed in moderation, but high doses providing large amounts of caffeine may cause headaches, diarrhea, insomnia, and irritability. While matcha tea is generally safe to consume, drinking too much in a day could be harmful.
Is matcha better with water or milk?
We recommend that if you plan to make a latte or use a lot of milk then you should use more than a 1/2 tsp of matcha to ensure the flavor and color remains strong. Tip: always whisk your matcha with a small amount of water first, even when you’re making a latte, as matcha won’t blend as well in milk.

How much matcha do I use per cup?
Place 1-2 teaspoons of matcha into a cup (adjust quantity to your taste). Add 2 tablespoons of hot water and use a spoon to remove any clumps and mix thoroughly.

There really is no substitute for the chashaku. Some people use small bowls instead of chawans, or egg-beaters, metal whisks, or spoons (cringe!) instead of chasens, but other spoons simply can’t replace the chashaku. Even the smallest sugar spoon is too wide to properly scoop out matcha.
