How to Whisk Matcha

  1. Soak the bamboo matcha whisk (Chasen) in warm water to open up the prongs.
  2. Using a tea strainer and a spoon, sift 2g of matcha powder into your tea bowl.
  3. Pour 70ml of hot water.
  4. Move the chasen in a back and forth motion (drawing a “W” shape) using your wrist for 20s. After an even layer of foam has formed, whisk the surface of the tea until it has a rich creamy texture. Draw a round circle from the centre of the bowl and lift the chasen.
  5. Enjoy your daily tea ritual by SAYURI matcha!
  6. Rinse the chasen in water, and dry on the whisk holder (Naoshi) to sustain the shape.

How to Clean Your Matcha Whisk 

  1. Place the whisk under a gentle stream of warm water to get rid of the matcha residue.
  2. Pour warm clean water into a matcha bowl (chawan) and whisk in the water for 60 sec until clean.
  3. After cleaning your whisk, it should be dried thoroughly before storing it away. Using a whisk holder (kusenaoshi) will help retain its shape. If a whisk holder is not available, store the whisk with the strings facing up. 

Note: Never use soap or dishwasher as this will damage the bamboo whisk
