    New To Matcha?

    If you are new to matcha and are looking for a great way to get started, here's a kit that's sure to please.  In this basic kit we include four of the most basic items you will need to get started.  All components of this kit are authentic, Made in Japan products and are of the highest quality.  We carefully selected each item of this kit to give what we consider to be the best entry price to matcha while not skimping on quality in any way.

    Our Kiri-no-Mori matcha, while low priced, originates in Uji Japan and when you consider the freshness and quailty to price ratio of this product, it will most assuredly beat the pants off of any matcha you may happen to find in your local store.  Likewise, our matcha whisk is made by a real Japanese craftsman and will last much longer than the myriad of Chinese knock-offs that flood the market.

    Our black matcha bowl also enhances the beautiful color of the matcha quite nicely!

    A few accessories that while not absolutely necessary, will make your matcha drinking experience more helpful include a Matcha Sifter as well as a Tea Wisk Holder (not included in the kit). 

    Notes -

  • Mogake Yuzamashi Watercooler

    • Unique!
    • Handcrafted!

    Handcrafted in Tokoname, Aichi prefecture Japan, this Mogake style Yuzamashi watercooler was made with gyokuro and light steamed asamushi sencha brewing in mind. The watercooler was wrapped with seaweed, causing the salt from the seaweed to oxidize with the clay making a unique pattern on the teapot. Since gyokuro should be brewed at a lower temperature and with double the amount of loose leaf (usually the most expensive green teas available), the use of this special yuzamashi watercooler is ideal for gyokuro enthusiasts, allowing multiple infusions from the same gyokuro leaf.

    How to Brew Gyokuro - Step-by-Step Instructions!

    The set is intentionally made very small, holding just 135 ml of water. The lid fits the inside of the teapot wall perfectly. There is a very well made and thought out spout and the pour is smooth.  This teapot is suitable for any gyokuro or light steamed green tea.  You could probably use it with most medium-steamed green teas though you might get some clogging on the ceramic inner spout.  Not suitable for deep steamed green tea as the fine, dust-like leaf particles.
