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 grams) sifted matcha into the chawan, then pour over 3 oz (⅓ cup) hot (190° F) water. Whisk vigorously with the chasen until foamy bubbles appear on top. Drink immediately.
