Matcha Whisk

Matcha whisks are used to prepare Matcha powdered tea in a Matcha bowl. They are hand-split from a single piece of bamboo. The whisk serves to break up the Matcha powder before whisking it into the wonderful, frothy tea which is how you drink it.

Preparing Matcha Tea

To prepare Matcha, measure 2 bamboo Matcha spoons (chashaku), or 1 teaspoon of Matcha powder, into a Matcha bowl or other small bowl of about 6-8″ in diameter and not too deep. You need room to use the Matcha whisk in “W” motion but don’t use too large of a bowl. You can use a small, fine sifter to help get rid of any clumps until you perfect the technique of using the whisk to break up the clumps.

Boil fresh water, and allow to set for a minute or so until the water temperature drops to about 180-185 degrees. Pour “3 gulps” or about 6 oz of the hot water into the bowl with the Matcha powder. Holding the bowl in one hand and the Matcha whisk in the other, slowly whisk in a “W” motion using your wrist, not your arm, increasing the speed as the powder gets thoroughly wet and blended into the water. Continue for one to two minutes until frothy. You can lift the whisk up slightly as the tea starts to get a bit frothy, allowing the tea to get properly blended without splashing out of the bowl. What done, slowly remove the whisk from the bowl and set aside.

When blended, drink the Matcha tea straight from the bowl. You do not let the Matcha settle or it will separate. Unlike other teas, Matcha is drank right after preparing.
