CEREMONIAL MATCHA ON IKKYU

what is matcha ?

Matcha (抹茶) is a delicious powdered green tea made from shaded leaves that provide higher levels of theanine. The taste is elegantly sweet and it creates a relaxing feeling for your body and mind. The powder dissolves in hot water so all of the nutrients are ingested including those not water soluble such as vitamin A, protein, vitamin E, minerals, dietary fibers. Its unique characteristics make it a prized beverage for centuries in Japan.

Japanese people have been enjoying matcha for centuries during the Tea Ceremony. The quality of your cup depends on how you prepare it. To get started, you’ll need some key accessories like a chawan (matcha bowl), chashaku (bamboo scoop), a chasen (matcha whisk), and kusenaoshi (chasen holder). We carry handmade chasen made in Takayama, Nara prefecture, with 100% Japanese bamboo! If you’re new to matcha, check out our video below!
