Red Kyusu Teapot
If you want to brew Japanese green tea in the traditional way, you must use a Kyusu teapot. This red tokoname kyusu is a great way to start exploring the world of Japanese green tea. It is a glazed teapot so it doesn't disrupt the flavor too much and it has an easy to clean metal sifter around the edges so that the tea leaves don't end up inside your glass. The reason we recommend using the kyusu is that it provides the maximum amount of space for the leaves to open up and fully release their flavor.
Chasen Matcha Whisk
Even though the bamboo tea whisk has been used in Japan for centuries, there is still no better tool to prepare beautiful foamy bowls of matcha. Each bristle moves through the water adding air to the bowl of tea, giving it a smoother and creamier flavor. A properly whisked high quality matcha can have a sweet and creamy flavor, almost like a latte but without the use of milk or sugar.
Chawan Matcha Bowl
A Matcha Bowl, also called Chawan, is the best tool for whisking up that perfect bowl of matcha. Crafted from clay, with a beautiful floral pattern on it, the higher sides of this bowl make it easier to whisk up your matcha without spilling it. If you preheat the clay bowl, it will also help keep your tea warmer for longer.
How to Use it
Add 2 1-2 grams of matcha powder to the bowl and then add in 100-150ml of 160-170 degrees water and whisk the powder into the water using a bamboo whisk or chasen
