Matcha Tea, a finely milled powder from Tencha tea leaves with their leaf veins and stems removed, is the green tea used per standard in the Japanese tea ceremony. This makes the instruments needed for its proper preparation to essential tools of the ceremony. One of the most important of these instruments, besides the Matcha Bowl (Chawan), is the Matcha Whisk (Chasen), which is used to whisk the Matcha powder in the Matcha bowl after pouring hot water and beat until frothy.
Due to its refreshing taste, energizing effects and the healthy properties attributed to it, Matcha tea today enjoys great popularity way beyond the scope of the Japanese tea ceremony both in Japan and among tea lovers in westeren countries. However, the preparation of Matcha tea in everday life is – essentially – not too different from that in the context of the tea ceremony: in order to achieve the best possible taste and also otherwise get the best of one’s Matcha, the Matcha powder must be evenly distributed (whisked) in the bowl water after pouring hot water and beatt and until frothy, a process that is most easily done with a dedicated Matcha whisk (Chasen) that is optimally adjusted to the Matcha bowl in shape and properties.
The “Ritual” of preparing Matcha tea with a dedicated set of tools, essentially consisting of a Matcha Bowl (Chawan) and a Matcha Whisk (Chasen) and complementable with a Matcha whisk stand and a Matcha scoop (Chashaku), is great fun with the preparation for your own Matcha experience and entains family, friends and acquaintances at social tea gatherings.
