Tips to make matcha without lumps
It might be difficult to make matcha without lumps as matcha is super-fine powder, and because of that, it makes static and lumps easily.
I'd recommend you to have Chasen (bamboo whisk) at home if you drink matcha or make some desserts with matcha. You would be surprised hot well it works.

Even with a small amount of water, you can mix it very well.
Whisking 2 tbsp of water and matcha with Chasen
If you don't have it at home, sieve Matcha before adding the water. It will help prevent lumps. You can use a tea strainer for sieving.
Let's start !
