Whether you’re a beginner or an enthusiast, this kit has everything you need to make a delicious cup every time- just add hot water.

Set includes:

  • An 80-tip bamboo whisk (chasen) that is easy for beginners to use

  • A simple tea bowl (chawan)
  • A matcha with just the right balance of sweetness and sharpness
  • Bilingual Englis-Japanese instructions with easy-to-understand illustrations showing how to make matcha and use the utensils

The Matcha Starter Kit is designed to have the feel of a present: the box is adorned with illustrations of matcha and its utensils in light green lines, with a big green ribbon wrapped around the inner lid.
