A gaiwan is a must have item for any tea enthusiast. Nothing is as versatile and practical when one wishes to make a quick infusion or experiment the rewards of loose leaf infusions. Add to this the most neutral and durable material there is: porcelain, and you have a beautiful and long-lasting solution. A design of this gaiwan is very well made and ergonomically correct. The cup sits deeply in the saucer, does not wobble when you pour and the lid is well-balanced. Simply said, this is a gaiwan which fits tea professionals as well as pure beginners.
The first thing you will notice when holding this cup is its weight and thickness. It is thicker to provide added insulation for sensitive hands as well as resist the abuses of everyday life. I guess that by now you understand how it got its name. Further than these functional features, this is a cup offers all the refinement necessary to showcase any of your good teas! It offers a good volume and shape and is a pleasure to handle.
Pitchers are also often referred to as fairing cups. This is quite descriptive of their use when it comes to serving tea. When serving more than one person, pouring from the pot into a pitcher and then using this pitcher to serve guests allows everyone to enjoy a similar tasting liqueur.
Matcha Yatakagami is the highest quality Matcha produced in Japan. Each leaf for this item is specially selected and carefully picked by our farmers' skilled hands. Today most tea leaves are trimmed by machine and traditional hand picked Matcha is rarely grown and is therefore very precious. The flavor and aroma of hand picked tea is much more mellow and smooth than tea trimmed by machine.
This quality Matcha from Uji is packaged in individual portions in 2 g bags. This is a response to the demands of customers who consume Matcha during travel or sport. It is prepared very simply using a shaker in any sealed vessel, either in hot or cold water according to your own preference. The powder is of a clear green colour, and the beverage has a delicate, sweet flavour. Thanks to its packaging in individual portions to be consumed immediately after opening, the Matcha remains fresh for a very long time.
Skillfully handmade from one piece of natural bamboo, the Chasen is used to whisk Matcha into a delicious frothy brew. This Bamboo Whisk has about 120 bristles. It makes a very nice lather and if stored properly, will remain in good working condition for many years. The large number of bristles creates a bowl of matcha that is especially smooth and frothy.

Our Matcha is Ichibancha, it comes from the first time of the year, and it originates from Uji region in the province of Kyoto, which is the oldest locality for production of Japanese green tea. Like Gyokuro tea, tea leaves grown in the shade are used for production of Matcha tea. Thanks to the slower growth of the shaded bushes, the tea leaves have a larger content of amino acids, which provide a sweeter taste of the resulting tea.
This Matcha was produced primarily for use in baking and cooking, by entirely natural procedures. Gyokuro tea leaves, which contain a whole range of active substances, were used for the production of this tea powder. Enjoy the full aroma and flavour of green tea also in your meals and sweet snacks.
