Genuine Japanese matcha set includes:
The TAKAYAMA masters matcha set is curated for matcha connoisseurs who seek genuine matcha tools that are made in Japan. The matcha whisk (CHASEN) and bamboo scoop (CHASHAKU) are handmade in Takayama Japan by bamboo whisk master Kizo Nakata. Both of these items are extremely rare to acquire outside of Japan.
Also included is the KOHIKI Chawan which is a medium-size matcha bowl that is hand-crafted using iron-rich clay by Mino potters in Japan. The inner and outer surface of the bowl is covered with a white slip and then sealed with a translucent glaze.
Using traditional farming methods and without the use of pesticides the tea leaves are sourced from ground Tencha grown on an organic farm in Uji Japan. The farm uses natural predators to remove any insects which would eat the leaf such as Praying Mantis, ladybugs and spiders.
This ceremonial grade matcha comes from the Okumidori cultivar. This Uji grown cultivar is carefully selected for its well rounded and naturally sweet umami taste
One serve of matcha (1g) contains between 36 & 40mg of caffeine.
Our teas are grown on the pristine hillsides of Uji in the Kyoto region of Japan.
Add 1-2 scoops of Matcha powder to Chawan
Add 60-80 ml of 80°C (176°F) hot water
Whisk until frothy
Top up with water to taste.
We test our products both at the farms where they are grown, as well as by third party laboratories here in Australia.
The safety of our organic matcha green tea is our absolute #1 concern, so we randomly test for contaminants including radiation and heavy metals, ensuring none of the bad stuff gets through.
