Chasen Bamboo 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 most important tool you can own.
Yabukita Matcha Kakitsubata 40 gram
This matcha has a fresh vegetal flavor you might typically associate with a matcha. It has less sweetness than the Sesui and more of a grassy flavor than the Washimine and the Koiai. If you like a strong matcha flavor, this matcha brings a lot of freshness, a lot of grassiness and a bit of astringency as well. This is a very high-quality organic matcha at a very affordable price. It is also a good matcha to mix in with almond milk to make a latte because the flavor is quite strong and you will still be able to get a good taste of the matcha.
The tea is produced in Shizuoka, high up in the mountains in an area that exclusively grows organic tea. We visited these tea farms in April 2019 to see the fields and factories where it was produced in person.
Preparation: 1-1.5 grams per 150ml; 80 degrees Celsius
