Chakoshi | Matcha Sieve




Our exquisite chakoshi (tea strainer) is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship that is perfect for sifting matcha.

Matcha is so finely milled that static in the air causes the particles to clump together. Sifting the matcha ensures the tea is smooth and light without any lumps and helps to produce a wonderful crema. Our chakoshi has an ultra-fine mesh which means it takes a little longer to sift the matcha but the resulting matcha is silky smooth.

The chakoshi is made from Japanese stainless steel and is meticulously crafted by hand in Kyoto. Wires are intertwined to form a basket using traditional techniques such as kiku-dashi which produces a beautiful chrysanthemum pattern. The fine mesh is then fitted and folded into shape and the basket is attached to the elegant handle. The result is a strikingly beautiful utensil that is a stylish and practical addition to your matchaware collection.

Our chakoshi are handmade by Torii Kanaami in Kyoto, Japan. Established in 1889, Torri Kanaami specialize in creating utensils from wire netting ("kanaami" in Japanese). They have a long history of making utensils used in the preparation of tea and traditional Japanese cooking and their tools have been cherished by chefs in Kyoto for decades.
