The Matcha Traditional Ceremonial Set is perfect set for all adepts of tea and the traditional Japanese matcha tea ceremony also called “The Way of Tea”. It’s also a great gift for those who are just starting their matcha journey.
The Matcha Traditional Ceremonial Set includes the following elements:
MOYA MATCHA TRADITIONAL 30G
High quality organic matcha with a balanced rich bitter-sweet taste, creamy texture and malachite green colour. Its full-bodied flavour makes it ideal to drink on its own but also in lattes, smoothies and lemonades. Moya Matcha Traditional is obtained in the 1st and 2nd harvest from tea plants that are specially shaded from direct sunlight. This process results in higher chlorophyll and L-Theanine contents and a richer, greener color. The fresh leaves are then collected, dried and ground to powder.
Moya Matcha Traditional is grown in the Uji region of Kyoto Prefecture, known for the cultivation of highest quality green tea for over 800 years. The Uji region is famous for its fertile soils and clean water. The green tea plants there have ideal conditions for growth thanks to hills providing good sunlight, frequent mists that protect delicate leaves from frost and high amount of rainfall. Moya Matcha is meticulously cultivated and harvested on small family-owned organic tea fields. It is then processed locally in Japan and dispatched in small batches to assure peak freshness for all our grades. This helps preserve all the qualities of the tea leaf and maintain high levels of minerals and antioxidants.
Handmade matcha bowl from fireclay with glaze finishing. It is shaped according to centuries’ old Japanese tradition from Kyoto adapted by a small ceramic studio in Cracow in collaboration with Moya Matcha. Each piece of stoneware is unique with its own natural and subtle variation. It is fired at very high temperature providing safety and durability. Matchawan is the traditional bowl used in the Japanese tea ceremony and makes matcha preparation very easy. When whisking matcha with a bamboo whisk (chasen) the tall vertical walls of the matchawan help to prevent the water from spilling. The broad bottom of the bowl makes it easy to whisk the powder smoothly inside and quickly obtain the perfect froth on the surface.
Please remember to use water not exceeding 80 °C temperature to preserve all the matcha properties.

MATCHA BAMBOO WHISK CHASEN
Traditional bamboo whisk or “chasen” is an indispensable tool of the Japanese matcha tea ceremony. The fine, handmade prongs are carved out in a single piece of bamboo by craftsmen whose skills are past on from generation to generation. When using a chasen to whisk matcha it is best to keep a loose and relaxed wrist and make rapid zigzag motions in the shape of letter “W” or “M” – this helps to give matcha the ideal frothy texture.
WHISK HOLDER NAOSHI
The traditional matcha whisk holder is not only a beautiful element of the traditional Japanese matcha tea set. It is a very practical tool that helps your chasen dry faster and maintain its shape and durability.
Material: porcelain. Size: 7cm (height) x 6cm (diameter). Color: Onyx black. Dishwasher safe.
MATCHA BAMBOO SPOON CHASHAKU
Chashaku is the traditional Japanese spoon for serving matcha and an integral part of the matcha tea ceremony. The curved portion of the spoon is used to scoop a small portion of tea and place in a bowl (matchawan). The mixture is then whisked to uniform consistency using a bamboo whisk (chasen). The amount of matcha served depends on individual preference. The thin tea or “usucha” is prepared with one or two chashaku of matcha and approximately 100ml of water.
Material: Bamboo. Length: 18cm. Not dishwasher safe.
