I purchased the matcha superior in the small container and absolutely loved it. So glad Hibiki-an is now offering this matcha in the large bag. I have several of the small airtight containers they offer. When I opened the bag I transferred all of my matcha into 3 of the...(more)

I was actually debating if these teacups would be a good size for me. I broke my favorite teacup on accident about 6 months ago and have been looking for a replacement. I am very happy with the size of the teacup it gives the the perfect amount of tea anytime I need a c...(more)

I have purchased several tea accessories from Hibiki-an and I have been curious about the hand held sifter for some time. In all honesty the Matcha Sifter (also from Hibiki-an) has a little finer sifting than the Hand Sifter. What I do really love about it is that I can...(more)

I have 4 different matcha Chawan's I have purchased from Hibiki-an and this one is perfect for my daily cups of matcha. The bright green color of the Matcha Superior against the bright white of the porcelain Chawan is unmatched. Very happy with the purchase.

This Matcha Superior is excellent tasting. I typically drink the House Matcha daily as my alternative to coffee. The Superior is much smoother. It is a very pure clean tasting matcha loved it so much I recently ordered the large bag. I highly recommend.

I have a few sets of coasters from Hibiki-an, however this one is my favorite. The stitching is well done and the material is nice. I love the dragonfly print and how it looks against my wooden Yunomi.

I have never been disappointed with Hibiki-an and their snacks/candy. A few pieces of the Yuzu Peel are enough to satisfy. Slightly sweet, citrus, bitter and chewy. I paired this with my House Matcha this morning before doing yoga.

I purchased this in 2012, I actually have the green and clear one. I love using this during the summer and it is very sturdy. I hand wash it after each use. This is one of my favorite tea accessories.

My husband bought me this Chawan a few years ago for a birthday present and recently on and RV trip one of my cats knocked it off the counter and it broke in three pieces. I was devastated but knew I could re-purchase the same Chawan. I recently ordered another one and ...(more)

I am always searching for teacups and I typically buy them from Hibiki-an. I LOVE this cup. Very well made and it is represented in person exactly as it in in the photograph. I was concerned about the vertical dents in the cup however they really do help you hold the te...(more)

Absolutely delicious! When you want something sweet with your tea the Matcha Cornetta is just what you want. I love that they are individually wrapped in what looks like rice paper on the outside and smooth on the inside. Hibiki-an takes great care in the products they ...(more)

I had kept my eye on these teacups for quite a long time. Last month I purchased them and I am completely happy with my purchase. I have added hot water from my Keurig directly into each of the cups, the water comes out around 170 degrees which is perfect for green tea....(more)

I have had my kusenaoshi for two years, excellent quality and looks nice sitting out. I use this with my 80 bristle chasen.

I originally ordered this Chasen back in 2013 and after two years I still use it regularly to whisk my matcha. Retains shape well and dries quickly.

These are my favorite snack to have with Matcha and Sencha tea. The Matcha Senbei alone is a delicately light cracker has the exact flavor of Matcha with a subtle sweetness followed by a light bitter finish, absolutely delicious. However, if paired with a homemade vanil...(more)

For some time I had been using a simple sifter for my matcha, however I knew in order to drink and enjoy it properly this was a must have. It is roomy enough to hold 80g matcha (or more), although I sift 40g at a time. This sifter is an excellent design with an airtight...(more)

I ordered these to have 2 at home, 2 for work and give 2 as a gift. They are not stiff coasters just enough to prevent scratches to a table. I like the print as it compliments my teacups and matcha bowls nicely. It seems as if the sewing is off for a few of the coasters...(more)
