Matcha Tea Set with Superior Grade Matcha Tea

  • £55.00

Bring a little of the ceremonial reverence of Japanese tea making to your home.  This matcha tea set provides you with everything you need to create this unique and uplifting tea at home. Superior grade matcha tea is milled to an extremely fine powder, the tea is rich, energising and uniquely bittersweet. 

The process of creating matcha tea is a fine art that includes shading the tea in the weeks before harvest to ensure the right balance of tannins and caffeine. Stems and veins are removed from each leaf after harvest, milling is undertaken with great patience using stone mills for finely grounded powder that retains maximum flavour.

This Japanese made matcha tea set will allow you to honour that process, by preparing the tea using the traditional and optimal method.


The set includes: 

Superior grade matcha tea, 40g

Bamboo whisk, or Chasen, with 80 strands for mixing and frothing your tea 

Chashaku, a fine, long handled bamboo ladle

Ceramic whisk holder

Chawan, ceramic bowl for whisking and serving your matcha tea 

(Bamboo whisk & ladle are not recommended for dishwasher cleaning)


Preparing matcha tea:

Add to 2-4 spatulas (equal to 2-4g) to the bowl

Pour 70-100ml pure water heated to 70-80ºC

Whisk the tea until it thickens and a creamy foam appears
