Handmade matcha whisk in real bamboo - a really good matcha whisk should have at least 80 straws and ours has 100 straws! Why beat with bamboo and not metal? Well, because hot water causes the catechins (antioxidants) in the matcha to bond with the metal from the whisk. And we want the antioxidants to bind free radicals, not metal - just like with a bamboo whisk!

Matcha is a finely ground green tea where the whole leaves from the bush have been pulverized. It is considered one of the world's finest teas and Matcha is traditionally prepared in a slightly larger tea bowl with a bamboo whisk, called the Chasen. The foam that forms when the Matcha is whipped in the right way (stir with an "M" or "W" motion) is as important as the crema in a good espresso. Eventually, the little knot in the center of the brush will "bloom out" and the straws will straighten out (just means drinking Matcha often enough). Rinse the whisk thoroughly in water after use and allow it to air dry thoroughly. Store it in the jar it comes in (or preferably on a matcha whisk stand) so it keeps its shape better.

Användning / Dosering

Stir with an "M" or "W" motion - the foam that forms when matcha is whipped correctly is as important as the crema in a good espresso.
