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 (bamboo whisk), a ceramic chasen holder, and a chashaku (bamboo scoop for measuring matcha).

Matcha is a special type of tea: a precious, vibrant-green powder made from shaded, hand-picked, high-grade Japanese leaves. Enjoyed by Buddhist monks for centuries, it is the basis of the classic Japanese way of tea and is traditionally 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. Add 2 chashaku scoops (~2 g) sifted matcha into the chawan, then pour over 3 oz (1/3 cup) hot (190°F) water. Whisk vigorously with the chasen until foamy bubbles appear on top. Drink immediately.
