Authentic high-quality Japanese Matcha tea whisk and bamboo scoop.
£16.00An integral part of the Japanese tea ceremony, this tool, used to whisk up the Matcha powdered tea, is made from bamboo and skilfully hand made to create its special shape.
Carved from bamboo, this is the authentic scoop used in the Japanese tea ceremony for Matcha tea.
£10.00Matcha is a superpower amongst teas. This special green tea is derived from Gyokuro tea, whose name translates as ‘Precious Dew’ and is shaded with reed screens for twenty days prior to harvesting to block out the sun. This serves to increase the chlorophyll and amino acid content. It is this amino acid, called theanine, and a special processing technique that give Gyokuro its unique sweet flavour and intense aroma. The greater quantities of these ingredients also increase its health-giving properties over other green teas. Gyokuro teas are then used to make the ceremonial tea Matcha, which is painstakingly ground in a special mill to a fine powder for whisking. Packets sold at a 40g weight.
£5.00A simple stainless steel measure for delivering the perfect scoop of Matcha, the Japanese powdered tea, to make one bowlful.
