When you open newly purchased matcha, you may find that some of the powder has formed small clumps. This clumping is caused by static electricity produced by the powder rubbing together, not deterioration in the quality of the matcha. Although it is possible to serve matcha without breaking up these clumps, they often fail to dissolve completely in hot water, remaining in the tea and getting deposited on the drinker's tongue. This will spoil the taste of what should be a delicious treat. So getting rid of these clumps is one of the keys to making a satisfying cup of matcha. You can get rid of these clumps using this sieve, which was designed expressly for this purpose.
How to use: Place the matcha powder on the wire mesh and break up the clumps by gently forcing the powder through the mesh with the spatula, which is included with the sieve. When cleaning the sieve, wipe off the matcha powder with a dry cloth or tissue.
