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 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.
Tasting Notes: vegetal, bittersweet, refreshing
Harvest Season: Spring 2020
This was a perfect way to get started on my matcha journey. The quality and flavor of the matcha is beyond what I expected. If you are considering this product, I'd say DO IT!
I have been buying your tea for almost 20 years I learned about you through Dr. Andrew Weil he used to sell the Matcha on his website and then he referred us to you. The Matcha is outstanding sometimes I buy a new starter kit because the other one sort of wears out or I wanted more cups
