Matcha Green Tea Powder in a Spoon

Should I buy a bamboo matcha whisk?

Matcha is traditionally made using a bamboo whisk. The bamboo whisk is specially crafted to suspend the matcha particles in the water and it really assists in delivering a much smoother matcha which does not have any sediment in the bottom.

Bamboo whisks are hand crafted and made from a single piece of bamboo but they are also very durable when cared for properly!

"I am hooked on Zen Green Tea! It has a smooth taste and is not bitter at all. The matcha is high quality with its the vibrant green colour and fine texture. It is easy to prepare, and to use in food as well as drinks. Its great at helping me concentrate and stay focussed, and also keeps my hunger at bay. This is my green tea of choice…no more tea bags for me!"

"I first fell in love with Zen Green Tea as I was a pretty intense coffee drinker, but I wanted something that would give me an energy lift and help my concentration in the afternoon but without the caffeine jitters and impact on my sleep. Zen Green Tea Matcha really did the trick, it gives me energy without feeling frenetic, and tastes so much fresher and less bitter than loose leaf green teas like Sencha."

"I have always loved tea but generally have stuck to English Breakfast tea with sugar. I started to find myself craving the sugar hit each afternoon so I would have a cup of tea but then have a big slump afterwards. After a recommendation by a friend I tried Zen Green Tea and loved it instantly. I still get the energy boost but there is no slump afterwards plus it is something that I can drink all year round. I love to carry a bottle of ice tea with me to sip throughout the day and then have a warm cup of tea after dinner. My energy levels have never been better! ".
