Helen’s Asian Kitchen 5-Piece Matcha Tea Gift Set
Helen’s Asian Kitchen 5-Piece Matcha Tea Gift Set lets tea lovers practice the art of matcha with tools used for centuries in Japanese tea ceremonies. Steeped in tradition, matcha is a unique, earthy beverage that holds an honored position in Japanese culture. Practiced for hundreds of years, the Japanese tradition of tea-making, or chado, is a process as meditative and soothing as enjoying the tea itself. This complete matcha tea set includes the essential tools for crafting authentic matcha.
The matcha tea kit includes a matcha tea bowl called a chawan, a whisk stand or kusenaoshi, an 80-tine bamboo matcha whisk known as a chasen, a matcha scoop or chashaku and a tea sifter. The bamboo scoop measures the tea, which is then passed through the mesh to dispel any clumps. In the tea bowl, the matcha is mixed to a frothy texture with the whisk. The matcha gift set includes a step-by-step guide for preparation and detailed instructions for the care of each tool to ensure its longevity. The bamboo pieces should be washed by hand, but the ceramic items and stainless steel tea sifter are dishwasher safe.
The set is presented in a beautifully designed gift box perfect for tea lovers and admirers of Japanese cultural traditions.
