Should you drink matcha tea? It’s certainly a good idea, while green tea has long been a recommended part of a healthy diet and matcha is a type of green tea made by taking young tea leaves and grinding them into a bright green powder. Because you’re drinking the whole tea leaves with matcha, you have even more effect from the health benefits of green tea. Drinking Matcha also gives you a boost like coffee, but without the coffee dip afterwards. See why drinking matcha is becoming a hype? Put yourself well on your way to prepare a perfect cup of matcha tea with this package deal. Or make someone happy with this perfect gift.

Bamboo Matcha Whisk
This original matcha whisk, also known as a Chasen, is made from natural bamboo specifically for the preparation of matcha tea. With this chasen, you can whisk the Japanese powder tea into a delicious, foamy and frothy tea. The matcha whisk is 5.5 cm by 11 cm.

Kotobuki Matcha from Amanprana
The organic Matcha (green tea) from Japan.
Amanprana matcha tea powder is made from the youngest and finest whole leafs of the Camelia Sinensis from Japan. Matcha is dark green tea and has a sweet flavour with a soft aftertaste. Amanprana's Matcha is certified organic and comes from the Shimoyama region in Japan. Kotobuki Matcha tea is harvested at a height of 600m,  in the middle of the mountains, far from any industrial regions.

What is Matcha?

Matcha is powder, made from green tea. Four weeks before the matcha leaves are picked, the tea plants are covered with tarps or mats so that the plants are in the shade. As a biological response to being placed in the shade, the plants will start to produce more chlorophyl (what makes a leaf green). This process strengthens the flavour and the deep green color of the leaves.

After being picked, the process of steaming, drying and grinding the tea leaves follows. The stems and the veins are removed from the leaves. The quality of the leaves is very important. Just like with whisky or wine, you have single estate matcha (single origin matcha), but also blends to which less qualitative leaves have been added.

What do you need to prepare Matcha?

  • Chasaku or bamboo matcha spoon: use this handmade spoon to dose the right amount of matcha powder for 1 cup of tea. 1 scoop is about 1 gram. Scoop the powder with the spoon into a matcha tea filter or sieve.
  • Matcha (tea) strainersieve the powder ultrafine with this tea filter. This makes it easier to beat the matcha up to a foamy mass, without lumps of matcha powder tea.
  • Chawan or matcha bowl, to prepare the matcha in and to drink it from (black, beige or dark green). A matcha bowl has a very special shape. It is wide enough to easily whisk the powder and has a firm foot, which makes it pleasant to hold when drinking. 
  • Chasen or matcha whisk, use this handmade bamboo whisk to beat the matcha powder to a foamy mass without lumps. This powdered green tea has an inherent tendency to clump together. The lumps do not really dissolve into water but settle and will not get mixed with a spoon. Not every beater is suitable for this.
  • Chasen holder, which helps the whisk dry in the correct position after usage.
How to make matcha tea:


6 tips to recognize the best quality matcha tea

  • Taste: real Matcha tastes sweet and fruity and has a grassy flavor. Fake Matcha tastes very dry and very bitter. For best results, use water just under a boil (80°C), otherwise good matcha can get a bitter taste as well.
  • A bright green color.
  • Finely ground which makes it feel silky soft; Kotobuki is ultrafine ground (40g per hour) with handmade granite mills.
  • Originating from Japan: The Japanese processing process is unique. It is therefore very important that the powder comes from Japan. When it comes from China, Korea or somewhere else, we no longer speak of matcha, but of green tea powder and it does not meet European requirements.
  • Organic quality mark: when you drink Matcha it is a must that the tea is organic; after all, you drink the entire leaf.
  • Packed carefully in a black-violet glass jar to preserve its top quality for a long time. Keep the jar in the fridge after opening, because matcha powder ages very quickly.

How to prepare Matcha tea?

  1. Take a small but wide enough bowl (a normal teacup is too narrow).
  2. Scoop 1 small teaspoon of Matcha powder into the bowl.
  3. Add some water and whisk into a pasty texture.
  4. Boil 80 - 100ml of water and let it cool down until it is about 75-80 degrees celsius.
  5. Pour the water into the bowl.
  6. Use the whisk to mix the Matcha powder and water until a small layer of foam appears. It is best to whisk the powder using a M or W pattern in the bowl.
  7. Your matcha is ready! Enjoy!
