Basic Matcha Kit
Ippodo’s selection of tools for making delicious matcha. Includes everything but a matcha bowl.
Koicha: 4 g (2 tsp.)
On your next day off, take a moment to prepare a bowl of matcha. Measure a portion of powder, and marvel at its brilliant green color. As you start to whisk, feel the texture of the whisk’s bamboo handle, and listen to the sounds of its tines swishing through the tea. Then, notice matcha’s honey-like fragrance filling the room. Take a sip, and feel its richness blossom throughout your palate. Finally, sit in the moment, and observe how refreshed and relaxed you feel.
Experiencing fulfilling moments like these is possible if you have well-designed tools. This is why we put together this set, to provide the basics for enjoying matcha at its fullest. Just add your favorite mug or matcha bowl.
We carefully selected each item in this kit as an essential for making delicious matcha, and we even rely on each of these tools ourselves at our Kyoto and Tokyo tearooms, using them to prepare many bowls of matcha every day.
Packaged in a beautiful box, this kit is also one of our top gift recommendations.
