Matcha Starter Set

Matcha Starter Set


Ready to bring matcha into your own home? Our Matcha Starter Set has everything you need to prepare and enjoy this traditional Japanese powdered tea: a 20g tin of Wako Matcha, a chasen or bamboo whisk, a ceramic chasen stand, and a chashaku (bamboo scoop for measuring out the matcha).

Matcha is a special type of tea: a precious, vibrant-green powder made from hand-picked, high-grade Japanese tea. Enjoyed by Buddhist monks for centuries, it is the basis of the classic Japanese tea ceremony and is whisked with hot water in a bowl to make a creamy, healthful beverage.

To prepare matcha: Pour hot water into a chawan or wide-mouthed bowl; discard and wipe the bowl dry. Sift 2 scoops (~2g) matcha into the chawan, then pour in 3-4 oz hot (190°F) water. Whisk vigorously with the chasen until foamy bubbles appear on top. Drink immediately.
