Chawan Matcha Bowl:
The Chawan is the traditonal bowl used to both prepare and drink matcha tea. The heaviness of the bowl conveys a sense of importance and the shape of the bowl makes it easier to whisk up the matcha to create a foamy bowl of tea for you and your guest. After whisking up the matcha, you can either drink it directly out of the Chawan or you can pour it into a glass.
Chasen Matcha Whisk
The Chasen is the most important utensil for making a nice foamy bowl of matcha. This Chasen is made out of a single piece of bamboo, and each prong is delicately cut and curled to be the perfect whisking tool. If you want to make a beautifully creamy bowl of matcha at home, a Chasen is the best tool you can own

Meet the Farmer
This tea was produced by Takatomo Katagi who took over the business from his father. His father was one of the pioneers of organic farming in Japan, growing tea without pesticides and chemical fertilizers as early as the 1970's. To take care of the insect problem without pesticides, the farmers began attracting spiders, bees and praying mantis to the field to create a healthier ecosystem. To deal with the weeds without herbicides, they plucked the weeds by hand. After much work, they finally had a crop of tea plants that were even stronger and more lively than ever before!
About the Farm
This tea comes to us from the farm of Katagi Kouka En, a family owned tea business that has been growing tea in Shiga for seven generations. The field is located in central Japan, close to Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan. The tea has been grown without pesticides or organic fertilizers since the 1970's. The field is fertilized with a combination of fallen leaves and soil, to create a more natural growing environment for the tea plants.
How to Brew it
Add 2 grams of matcha to a bowl and then pour in 100-150ml of 160-175F water. You can then scrape off the sides of the bowl and begin whisking with you matcha whisk
