Product specificity 商品説明

Matcha “Jo no mai”

This finely stone-ground matcha produced in the famous Uji features a mellow taste. It can be used for Usucha (thin) and Koicha (thick).

“Jo no mai” (Noh Dance Prelude) is a masterpiece of Shoen UEMURA, a Japanese-style painter, famous for her beautiful women portraits. She was born the second daughter of a tea leaf merchant owning a shop named “Chikiriya” in Kyoto. 

In September 2012, we received a trademark registration approval from the Japan Patent Office for this matcha. (Business application number: 2012-042362).

Finely stone ground matcha

Tencha is the name for the tea leaves used to make matcha. Tencha leaves that have been covered for about 30 days are steamed and then dried without kneading. The final step to make matcha is to carefully grind the tencha leaves with a stone. The resulting product is known as matcha.

By grinding the tea leaves with a millstone the grains become finer. As a result, we get a high-quality matcha with a pleasant and mellow taste and easy to foam.

The process takes a very long time as well. Usually, it takes one hour to grind 40g of matcha.

Matcha bowl

A Kyō ware with a bright green ceramic glaze reminiscent of a stream and a slightly transparent earthlike color.

※The matcha bowl is handmade. So, the shape, the color and the size might slightly differ from one to another.

※Size: 11.5 x 7.2cm

Takayama Chasen

A cute tea whisk made of 80 bamboo sticks woven with straight interlacing threads forming a checkerboard pattern. The beautiful form of this unique item adorned with colorful threads tied in a single knot is eye-catching. It will definitely make your tea time more enjoyable.

Whisk stand

Celadon whisk holder. Bamboo plant tends to grow straight up from the base. So, you will have to use a whisk stand to keep your whisk in shape.

Bamboo teaspoon

A bamboo teaspoon for making Japanese tea that can be used anywhere and anytime for any purpose.

How to prepare matcha 抹茶の点て方

1. Add one teaspoon (~2g) of matcha to the bowl.

2. Add a splash of water (~10ml) and whisk until the tea is frothy. The whisk breaks up clumps and deliver a smoother cup of matcha.

3. Pour 60ml of hot water and whisk vigorously in a zigzag pattern.

4. When the tea is frothy, draw the Japanese character “の” with the whisk. Your tea is ready!
