Casual Tea Ceremony Set
How you make your matcha is totally up to you, but you have to admit something just feels right about preparing matcha the "right" way with a tea ceremony set. This beginner-friendly set includes a chawan (tea bowl), chasen (bamboo whisk), chashaku (tea scoop), and natsume tea container - everything you need to casually enjoy the full flavors of matcha green tea. The tea bowl is Echizen pottery, a traditional craft of Fukui prefecture. It is widened at the bottom for easy whisk movement while still being comfortable for all hand sizes. Everything comes in a gorgeous minimalist wooden box that will protect the pieces and make sure they don’t rub together. Though instant matcha powders are great, they are no matcha for the real thing! For more information on what matcha is and how to prepare it, check out this article on the Bokksu Blog!
