In this guide, we will explore how to use a matcha set and provide valuable insights on where to buy a matcha set in Australia. Let's dive into the fascinating world of matcha and unlock the secrets of this traditional Japanese art.
1. Bamboo Scoop: Measuring Matcha with Precision
The first step in using a matcha set is to measure the perfect amount of matcha powder. Our bamboo scoop, or "chashaku," is specifically designed for this purpose. It allows you to scoop the desired amount of matcha with accuracy and precision. Use the bamboo scoop to measure approximately one teaspoon (or two scoops) of matcha powder into your matcha bowl.
2. Bamboo Whisk: Whisking to Perfection
The bamboo whisk, or "chasen," is the key to achieving a creamy and frothy matcha. Before whisking, soak the bamboo whisk in warm water for a few moments to soften the prongs. Gently shake off the excess water and place the whisk upright in the matcha bowl. Hold the bamboo whisk firmly and whisk vigorously in a zigzag motion until a frothy layer forms on the surface of the matcha.
3. Whisk Stand: Preserving the Whisk's Shape
After whisking, it is important to preserve the shape and quality of your bamboo whisk. Our matcha set includes a whisk stand, which serves as a dedicated resting place for your whisk. Simply place the whisk upright in the stand to allow it to air dry naturally. This helps maintain the whisk's form and prolong its lifespan for future matcha sessions.
4. Fine Sift: Achieving Smooth Matcha
For a smooth and clump-free matcha experience, sifting the matcha powder is essential. The small sift, or "furui," helps break down any lumps and ensures a consistent texture. Place the small sift over the matcha bowl and gently tap it with the bamboo scoop, allowing the powder to sift through the fine mesh. This process also helps to aerate the matcha, enhancing its flavour and ease of whisking.
5. Matcha Bowl: Embracing Serenity in Every Sip
The matcha bowl, or "chawan," is where the magic happens. Its wide shape provides ample space for whisking and ensures a harmonious blend of matcha and water. Pour hot water (not boiling) into the matcha bowl, covering the matcha powder. Use the bamboo whisk to whisk the matcha and hot water together until a rich, frothy layer forms on top. The matcha bowl's handcrafted ceramic design enhances the visual and sensory experience, adding a touch of tranquility to your matcha ritual.
6. Matcha Powder: The Finest Grade of Green
Last but certainly not least, our matcha tea set includes a 30g tin of our Premium Ceremonial Grade Matcha Powder. Made from shade-grown tea leaves, meticulously ground into a vibrant green powder, this matcha offers a smooth and robust flavour profile. Packed with antioxidants and amino acids, it provides a gentle, focused energy boost, making it the perfect companion for moments of relaxation or productivity.
