For an authentic and enriching matcha tea experience, we invite you to explore the world of ChaNoYu, the Japanese tea ritual. Elevate your matcha-making with this traditional Japanese matcha set that has all the essential tools needed to prepare the perfect cup of matcha.
What's in the set:
• Central to this matcha set is Chawan, a deep cylindrical Japanese tea bowl. Its spacious design allows chasen, a bamboo matcha whisk, to move freely within, creating the ideal environment for whisking and frothing matcha powder. Crafted with a robust shape, the Chawan sits comfortably in both hands, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the ceremonial act of preparing and savoring matcha.
• Chasen, a versatile and indispensable component of the matcha set, is handcrafted from bamboo. This whisk is a masterful tool for whisking matcha to perfection. With its delicately curved bristles, chasen creates a frothy and velvety texture, ensuring matcha powder is thoroughly dissolved and evenly incorporated, releasing the tea's full flavor and aroma.
• Accompanying Chasen is Chashaku, a traditional bamboo tea scoop. This timeless utensil is used to measure the precise amount of matcha needed for each serving. With one full scoop of matcha, equivalent to approximately 1 gram, you can achieve the optimal balance of flavors in your matcha tea.
Together, these tools form the cornerstone of the Japanese tea ceremony, infusing the ritual with grace, precision, and reverence. By embracing this matcha set, you honor the tea tradition's legacy while creating your personal connection to the art of matcha preparation.
Prepare to embark on a journey of sensory delight as you immerse yourself in the vibrant world of Japanese green tea. With this matcha set at your disposal, you possess the essential elements needed to unlock the energizing qualities and exquisite flavors of ceremonial matcha. Discover the joy of whisking matcha in the Chawan, feeling the smooth texture of the Chasen against your palm, and savoring each carefully measured serving.
Let this matcha set be your guide as you cultivate a deeper appreciation for the art of matcha making and the rich traditions that surround it. Allow yourself to be captivated by the enchanting flavors, the calming ritual, and the profound connection that tea brings. With each sip, you honor the time-honored heritage of Japanese tea culture and create a moment of tranquility and rejuvenation in your own tea sanctuary.

I bought this matcha set as a gift for my brother. All the pieces of the set arrived in a timely manner and in pristine condition. My brother was very happy with this set, especially with the chawan (Snow on Soil variant). It was definitely hand-made as well as hand-painted. He is very excited. Many thanks for Path of Cha. ☺
This set arrived exactly as expected, all in good condition. Now I have so much more to look forward to in the morning!
Bought the "seafoam" as a gift and my friend was very happy with it. Thanks for getting it to me on time! Packaging was great.
