    Matcha tea strainer for making delicious traditional Matcha tea.

    Matcha is a powdered green tea that is used in Japanese tea ceremonies, and has been used as such for centuries. The ancient Japanese believe that tea was a gift from the heavens, and as such, held great restorative and spiritual power. Ancient Japanese poet, Sen no Rikyu who is considered to be the most influential on the development of the tea ceremony (or Chanoyu), believed "though many people drink tea, if you do not know the Way of Tea, tea will drink you up."

    Preparing Ceremonial Matcha:

    • Prepare tea bowls by warming them with boiled water
    • Prepare your Matcha whisk by soaking the tip in the boiled water in one of the bowls for about 10 seconds
    • Pour the water out and dry the bowl with a paper towel
    • Using your teaspoon, add 2 scoops of Matcha to each bowl
    • Pour 1/3 of a cup of your hot water into each bowl
    • In a slow "m" motion, submerge any loose bits of Matcha that may be floating on the surface of the tea
    • Whisk the tea more briskly in a back and forth motion until the surface of the Matcha becomes frothy
    • Consume immediately. (In Japan, it is customary to drink the entire bowl in 3 quick slurps)
