Regular price $8.00

Traditionally in Japan, Matcha is ceremonially whisked into a frothy brew and enjoyed with wagashi. The health benefits are magnified with Matcha as the stone-ground Sencha allows for consumption of the whole tea leaf. Using a bamboo whisk and bowl, Matcha becomes a thick green brew that is typically enjoyed in a matcha bowl.

How to Brew

  1. Start with filtered water for the best brew.
  2. You will need: a matcha whisk, a tea bowl, a matcha spoon or teaspoon, and a matcha strainer (optional)
  3. Add 2 scoops or 1 teaspoon of matcha to the bowl. A strainer may be used to sift the matcha free of clumps. Adjust amount of matcha to your preferences.

  5. Lightly press the matcha whisk into the bowl and whisk in a quick back and forth motion until a smooth layer of foam is created.
