The wellness world is in agreement: Matcha is a health “do.” The powdered green tea that’s showing up in everything from juice to ice cream is high in antioxidants that reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. Plus, it has all the energy benefits of an afternoon caffeine fix, without the jittery side effects. And with this easy-to-use kit from the tea gurus at Harney & Sons, you can whip up a cup at home.
How it Works
Each kit comes with a chashaku, or bamboo scoop, a chasen, or bamboo whisk, and a ceramic bowl—as well as 1.06 ounces of Japanese Senjunomukashi, a thick, heady matcha.
How to Use
Use the Bamboo Perfect Tea Scoop to add about a teaspoon of matcha powder to the bowl. Pour 4 ounces (½ cup) of near-boiling water over and briskly whisk with the Bamboo Whisk. When it froths, the tea is ready to drink.
