What is Matcha?
Both matcha and green tea are derived from the same Camellia sinensis tea plant. While green tea is brewed and the leaves discarded, matcha leaves are ground into a fine powder, and the whole leaf is consumed.

STEP 2: Choose Your Tea Bowl:
Select your preferred tea bowl from our range of styles and colours.
Our tea bowls are individually hand made and painted, so there will be slight variances in finishes.
In addition, the sets include;
Tea Whisk: combines the matcha powder to ideal smoothness and texture, and there is no substitute for it. Our Tsuneho Tea Whisk has 64 tines and suitability for preparing either the thin tea, usucha, or the thick tea, koicha.
Tea Scoop: measures the correct portion of fine matcha powder needed for each serving—and one tea scoop is equal to around one gram of matcha powder.
Matcha Sifter: unsifted matcha powder has an inherent tendency to form lumps and disrupts smoothness and taste.
