Well crafted matcha whisk and comes with a container that holds the whisk after use. Definitely need a whisk to completely remove all clumps in your tea
I bought the whisk with intentions of using it to match the overall aesthetic when I make my matcha [抹茶] (also purchased from Ocha & Co.)。It's been about a month and after 8 total uses it has still maintained it's most of its original shape, color and has shown no signs of fraying. Although the ends have uncurled after multiple uses it maintenance is fairly simple. I place it on the palm of my hand, not flat but slightly cuffed and gently push down repeatedly until it regains its shape.
Closing thoughts: If someone were to ask me where they could buy 抹茶 and other Japanese products, I would suggest Ocha & Co.
The pictures are to give you an idea of how it looks after repeated use and maintenance. Enjoy making ocha! :)
We have been using the bamboo whisk and matcha green tea powder with Oatly milk. Divine. It tastes just like a cafe-made matcha latte.
I recommend pre-heating your bowl and bamboo whisk to soften the bristles before use.
This matcha whisk is wonderful! It works great and I love knowing that it was hand made!
