If you are new to Matcha, you might wonder what type of tea ware you need to prepare Matcha.
To enjoy Matcha with full flavor and the correct frothy consistency without lumps, you need the proper tea ware made specifically for traditional Matcha preparation. This Starter Set is the minimum set including only the essential tea ware you need to make a perfect bowl of Matcha. This set is not only reasonably priced, but also comprised of high quality and valuable standard essential tea ware, fine enough for tea connoisseurs.
This Starter Set includes a Matcha Bowl (Matcha Chawan), Bamboo Whisk (Chasen) with 80 bristles, and Matcha Spoon (Chashaku). The Matcha Bowl is the most standard shape and size, so that it is also perfect for beginners. The Bamboo Whisk has 80 bristles, and therefore is an excellent value, useful and long-lasting.
We recommend that you get the bamboo whisk wet just before you use it. The bamboo whisk is susceptible to dry conditions.
If you would like to add other important tea ware, we suggest our Whisk Keeper (Kusenaoshi) and Matcha Sifter or Hand Sifter. It is useful though not essential. Sifting Matcha before preparation is an important step to create a rich flavor.
With this set, you have everything essential to correctly prepare Matcha, so you can enjoy an authentic and flavorful bowl of Matcha!
(Please note that each Matcha Bowl is unique due to the techniques employed by the artisan. There are natural variations in each piece.)
