How to use the tea strainer

A tea strainer can be used as a convenient way to sift matcha powder directly into a tea bowl, travelling flask, or other vessel. Use this method when preparing few servings. Use a matcha sieve when filtering large amounts of matcha powder.

  1. Place the desired amount of matcha powder in a dry tea strainer.
  2. Filter the powder by pushing it through the mesh using a chashaku (tea ladle) or teaspoon.

Note: Clumps naturally develop in matcha powder. If you prepare matcha powder without sifting it, the matcha will have clumps remaining in it when you try to drink it, which will not be so pleasant. Matcha doesn't dissolve in hot water, so the clumps will not dissolve even if you pour hot water on them. This is why sifting matcha powder in advance makes it easier to prepare.

A Must Have

I wish I had this item earlier! This has stepped up my matcha game to a whole new level. This completely gets rid of unpleasant matcha clumps and sifts wonderfully. The holder is excellent for maintaining its shape, definitely will last a long time.

Love it

Well made, no sharp edges, feels sturdy and balanced. I love that it comes with a container to rest the strainer on, otherwise the strainer would get placed on a counter and get bent out of shape. Also it sifts excellently and that makes whisking matcha much easier and frothier.
