Showcasing a stunning collection of handmade matcha utensils, our luxury brewing kit contains everything you need to make a perfect cup of matcha tea.


The utensils are stored inside a beautifully crafted kiribako box made from paulownia wood. In Japan, expensive gifts and precious items are traditionally presented in a kiribako box. For the Japanese, the kiribako box symbolizes a space in which we entrust our dreams and protect that which we wish to treasure.


The brewing kit includes our rare single batch matcha, Raku Paradise, our larger porcelain chawan (cup) made by Alissa + Nienke in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, our exquisite chakoshi (tea strainer) made by Torii Kanaami in Kyoto, Japan, and our beautiful white bamboo chasen (whisk) in the Shin Kazuho style and white bamboo chashaku (scoop) made by Sabun Kubo in Nara, Japan.


Balancing both traditional and contemporary functionality, our luxury matcha brewing set includes all the essentials for you to take part in a daily ritual that will set you up for the day ahead.

Kiribako
Our luxury brewing kit is housed in a kiribako box made by Hirofumi Fujii whose family have been making the finest kiribako boxes by hand for nearly a century from their workshop in Fukuoka.

The box is made from paulownia wood. Paulownia is considered to be the most valued wood for kiribako boxes as it is light and flexible, absorbs shocks and contains plenty of tannins which help to protect the contents from pests and mold.

Masters of the tea ceremony have been storing their teas and tea utensils in kiribako boxes since the Muromachi Period (1338–1573) in Japanese history. We hope that our kiribako box will become part of your daily matcha ritual and that you enjoy making cups of matcha using the treasures it contains.
Chawan
The luxury brewing kit contains our larger porcelain chawan (matcha cup) which is specially designed to work with our traditional chasen (bamboo whisk). The larger size of the cup allows the matcha to be whisked with the warm water until it produces a lovely, foamy crema. Perfect for those who like to drink their matcha with more water in the usucha (thin) style.

The chawan is made by Alissa + Nienke in their studio in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, and is the latest addition to their "Pigments & Porcelain" series. Pigments & Porcelain is an ongoing research project into mixing colored pigments with liquid porcelain. By adding different colors as the porcelain is poured into the molds, Alissa + Nienke are able to create smooth and distinctive patterns in their porcelain. This particular technique reflects not only their unique way to working with colors, but also the movement created by the production process itself.
Chasen
The luxury brewing kit contains our traditional chasen (matcha whisk) which comes in the Shin Kazuho style favored by the Urasenke tea school in Japan. It excels at creating a very fine crema with smaller bubbles. While primarily used to make usucha (thin matcha), the Shin Kazuho can also be used to make koicha (thick matcha).

A chasen (matcha whisk) is essential for the preparation of matcha because the matcha powder needs to be mixed with the water before it can be consumed.

Our whisks are handmade in Nara, Japan in the workshop of master craftsman Sabun Kubo whose family have been making tea whisks for 24 generations. Sabun Kubo was recognized as a traditional master craftsman by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry of Japan in 1987 and he has won awards and been commended for his work since. His whisks were exhibited at the Louvre Museum in Paris in 2008 and he has demonstrated their use in the tea ceremony at numerous expositions around the world.
Chashaku
The luxury brewing kit contains our white bamboo chashaku (scoop) which is designed to measure the correct amount of matcha. It can also be used to ease the matcha gently through our chakoshi (matcha sieve).

Our scoops are handmade in Nara, Japan in the workshop of master craftsman Sabun Kubo whose family have been making matcha utensils for 24 generations. Sabun Kubo was recognized as a traditional master craftsman by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry of Japan in 1987 and he has won awards and been commended for his work since. His whisks were exhibited at the Louvre Museum in Paris in 2008 and he has demonstrated their use in the tea ceremony at numerous expositions around the world.
Chakoshi
The luxury brewing kit contains our exquisite chakoshi (tea strainer) which 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 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.

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.
