Matcha Choan (20g tin)

Product code: CSTV-30

Our highest grade of ceremonial Matcha. Produced with such finesse it feels like 'drinking silk'. From a blend of three different cultivars expertly chosen and assembled by M. Koyama, its balance is very close to perfection.

Fresh and sweet as a pea pod, subtle notes of seaweed and butter make its profile extremely seductive. This is the Matcha to try for a truly sublime experience.

For greater freshness, the Matcha should be used within 6 months of opening and stored in a cool place.

Matcha Sendo (20g tin)

Our Matcha Sendo is a blend of two classic cultivars, assembled with the talents of M. Koyama, reputed artisan in Uji.

Chasen (Matcha Tea Whisk) | White Bamboo

The chasen is a traditional tool and is essential for preparing matcha. It is made from a single piece of bamboo with the end cut into several thin slivers to whisk the green tea into a small quantity of water. With a quick motion, the whisked tea is then fully emulsified and attains the proper texture as seen in the famous Japanese tea ceremony – the chanoyu.

Chawan from Ms. Zhang | Aurora

The Aurora glaze is Ms Zhang’s most popular porcelain piece! The vibrant shades of blue, purple and red really catch the eye.
