Everything you need to make A+ matcha at home. This kit comes with a beautiful, textured black ceramic chawan (tea bowl), chasen (whisk) and chashaku (scoop). You can either get just the set or include some of our Shohaku or Kinrin Matcha at a discount. Each of these items separately add up, so get them together to save on everything!
It comes all packed safely in a compact box and basic instructions are included if you need a little guidance.
If you are a regular matcha maker, you might want to invest in a chasen tate. It helps the chasen (whisk) hold its shape between uses to prolong its integrity. A simple item that will help in the long run. This one is an off white color.
Here's a great 2-in-1 strainer. It's simple and elegant to use with any gongfu setup for straining from pot or gaiwan to pitcher. The mesh is also the perfect fineness for casual matcha sifting. Some meshes are too tight or loose for matcha, but this one is great. You can set it across your chawan and sift right into your preheated and dried bowl.
A simple single-notch matcha scoop for all you matcha lovers. When making ceremonial grade matcha, a chashaku is usually used to ration two scoops of tea into the chawan. No matter how you make it, it can't hurt to have the right tools. Each of these utensils is cut and formed from a piece of bamboo and will last for the rest of your life if cared for properly. Make sure it is stored someplace clean and dry and don't get it wet. Simply wipe clean with a clean, dry cloth after each use.
This Hagi Ware Chawan is so pleasing to handle. The glaze is so smooth, covering the Yamaguchi clay with colors reminiscent of foggy mornings. The triple glaze dip creates a triangle on the base of the bowl, adding another dimension of artistic expression.
Reminiscent of fresh snow falling on new spring shoots, this chawan is the perfect vessel for showcasing the vibrant green of your matcha. Handcrafted clay with a thick, smooth white glaze and hint of soft green to mark the front of the bowl.
Made in Gifu Prefecture, this chawan has a beautiful and classic shino ware look. With earthen-red clay peeking through the thick white glaze, the chawan is as pleasing to handle as it is to view. The sturdy base makes whisking an easy task and the sides are perfect to cup in your hands as you enjoy each sip of fresh matcha.
This chawan echos the style of a different era. The textured matte glaze and carved edges, paired with the angled bottom give a nod to tetsubin ironware. The interior has a soft mauve glaze and spiral in the center that will reveal itself when you finish your last sip of matcha.
For those matcha occasions that need a little drama. This alluring chawan has a high-shine glaze that shows off the deep red and black glazes that give it the look of running lava. This chawan is lovely but also feels great in your hands.
This chawan is glazed in a way that separates upon firing, revealing a network of fine cracks in the top of the glaze. The glaze is still smooth and whole, and will not crack further, but the result of this technique is visually stunning.
Now you have what you need to make matcha when you hit the road. Tucked into this sturdy bamboo canister is a whisk (chasen) and scoop (chashaku). The chashaku is hinged for portability, making this compact and oh-so-handy!
