The three tools you need to make a perfect cup of matcha: a chashaku (bamboo tea scoop) for measuring out your tea, a chasen (bamboo whisk) to mix it and create the perfect froth, and a chasen stand to hold your whisk, and help it keep its shape.
The matcha essentials contains:
- Chashaku (bamboo spoon)
- Chasen (bamboo whisk)
- Chasen Stand
How to Make Perfect Matcha:
We recommend you use not quite boiling water, around 80°C works well.
If you are using a chashaku (a Japanese bamboo teaspoon) we recommend 2 scoops, or 1 scoop from an ordinary teaspoon (approx. 1.5g)
- Add 2 scoops of matcha powder to your tea bowl or cup.
- Pour around 70ml of not quite boiling water into the tea bowl.
- Whisk the matcha with a chasen (Japanese bamboo whisk) for about 15 seconds until smooth and foamy.
- Relax and enjoy!
