The Traditional Method

This method requires traditional Japanese tea utensils. We received ours from Ippodo Tea Co., a shop based in Kyoto, Japan, and New York City. The main tools needed (in addition to matcha tea) include a bamboo tea ladle (chashaku), a tea strainer, a bamboo whisk (chasen), and a traditional, ceramic matcha bowl (matcha-chawan).
