Koyamaen Isuzu Matcha

Isuzu, translated “Fifty Bells”, is an entry grade ceremonial matcha. The name "Fifty Bells" is a reference to the Isuzu river that flows through the Ise Grand Shrine in Mie Prefecture, Japan. While suitable for use in tea ceremony, Isuzu is excellent for everyday matcha drinking. Store in refrigerator or freezer to maintain freshness.

Seasonal Higashi

These are traditional pressed sugar sweets made in Japan. They are used in tea ceremony and are made from wasanbon, a fine Japanese sugar. Vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free!

Bamboo Whisk

Traditional matcha is prepared with a bamboo whisk, called a chasen. This whisk is carved from one piece of bamboo and is uniquely designed to aggravate the finely ground tea leaves until they are fully suspended. Using a brisk “W” or “M” motion, you simply mix your matcha and water in your bowl (called a chawan) until the matcha is frothy and thus suspended. This chasen is a high quality one from Koyamaen in Japan.
