Matcha Green Tea Set Akai incl. Matcha Whisk
The focus of our tea ceremony set "Akai" (Japanese "red") is the black Matcha bowl with its deliberately irregular shape and the wavy rim, which represents the hilly landscape of Japan.
Fiery red accents on the black-brown glaze mix with the intense green of the matcha tea to create a stimulating color combination that enhances the focussing effect of the matcha
This also makes the Matcha a visual pleasure.
The bamboo matcha whisk, also called chasen, is an essential accessory for preparing matcha tea.
Before beating the matcha, the bristles of the matcha whisk should be soaked in warm water for a short time, this increases the service life.
Do not pull the broom over the bottom of the bowl when you open it yourself, as parts of the sensitive bristles could break off.
It has 80 bristles and allows you to beat matcha tea (green tea) with a firm and substantial foam.
After use, simply rinse the bamboo broom with lukewarm water and place it on the broom holder provided with the bristles pointing downwards.
The special shape of the holder ensures that the bristles are protected and keep their shape longer.
With the traditional bamboo spoon (chashaku), the Matcha powder is optimally dosed into the bowl (1 heaped spoon corresponds to 1g).
All parts are made of high-quality ceramics.
