This bamboo whisk is an essential tool for a perfect cup of matcha or other powdered green tea. Carved out of a single piece of bamboo, a traditional matcha whisk has been the tool of choice for centuries to properly froth the finest of ground matcha.
In order to make a really good cup of matcha for drinking, it takes (1) good quality premium grade matcha or higher (lower grades are fine for cooking or smoothies but too bitter to enjoy on their own), and (2) a good matcha whisk. The proper whisk makes a difference because matcha is so very fine, with the texture of very fine baby powder, so trying a kitchen whisk or smoothie frother usually just doesn’t work well, and you end up with lumpy matcha. If you’re going to take the time to buy good matcha, make sure you have the right tools to make it right.
Life is too short to drink lumpy matcha 🙂
