To get the best from your Matcha, there’s no lovelier way than to use the traditional tools to create a calm, mindful ceremony at home, deliberating over every movement to focus the mind before raising the cup to your lips and drinking slowly.
Our ceramic Matcha bowls draw on the traditional Japanese Chawan, ensuring there is plenty of space to whisk vigorously enough to create a perfect froth on top. The calming white colour allows the vibrant green of our Matcha to ‘pop’, adding a visual element to the ceremony of preparing Matcha at home.
Our 100-prong whisks are handmade by old masters, fashioned from a single piece of bamboo that has been seasoned for two years before being carefully teased and worked into these delicate works of art capable of whisking up the perfect Matcha crema.
This set includes everything you need to enjoy a Matcha ceremony at home. It also makes a thoughtful gift for someone who already loves Matcha, or that you know admires beautiful things, and you suspect might find great joy in the everyday ritual of Matcha making.
Matcha is such a wonderfully versatile ingredient and we’re always looking for new ways to play with this amazing Japanese green tea powder. Below are a few inspiring suggestions, though don’t forget to head to our blog where we add ideas and recipes reguarly.
For this simple, creamy ice cream milkshake, choose a plain flavour like vanilla, chocolate or strawberry. We opted for a vanilla that has a lot of real vanilla flavour to pair with our Organic Cocktail Grade Matcha, which has a vibrant green flavour and a hint of umami.
It’s so easy to get your daily Matcha fix and boost of health by adding Matcha powder to your smoothies or yoghurts. Here we’ve finely sieved a 1 tsp full of our Organic Cocktail Grade Matcha into 150ml Coconut Yoghurt, and piled it high with seasonal berries. It doesn’t hurt to add a sprinkling of dessicated coconut for extra sweetness, either.
In the hotter seasons, we like to keep a bottle of simple Matcha syrup in the fridge for making Matcha lemonade, or sodas, or other Matcha-based, cooling beverages. The ways are numerous. Head to our Journal to find out how.
