Japanese Tea Ceremony
Traditionally at the heart of Japanese culture, the special matcha tea ceremony (Chanoyu) is also known as ‘The Way of Tea’. It is a perfect demonstration of etiquette and grace, and brings a feeling of peace, harmony and happiness.
To perform the ceremony at home, you’ll need your bowl (chawan), whisk (chasen), and traditional bamboo scoop. While you’re preparing your matcha tea, it’s a time to relax, unwind and take yourself away from the worries of the day.
To serve one
In your bowl, mix half a level teaspoon in to a paste using around 40mls of cold water.
Whisk (ideally with a bamboo chasen) in an ‘M’ shape until frothy.
Heat another 150mls of water to around 70°C, stir in to the paste and drink immediately.
To make a latte, replace the water with your milk of choice, adding a dash of honey.
We source our matcha from a small eco-run farm in Shizuoka, Japan and it’s the product of many hours of love, and many years of skill. This ceremony grade matcha is the absolute best that we found during our travels.
