 Ahieving Better Taste by Sifting


Don’t you sometimes find an unpleasant taste in the home stored matcha, which you do not find in a brand new one from shops?   You can make the taste better by sifting it, and also prevent lumps in the prepared tea.

Sifted matcha powder gets more volume without any lumps and looks fluffy.  When prepared, the sifted tea has finer foams.   And the most significant difference will be the flavor.  Sifting can definitely improve the taste!  You can reduce the unpleasant taste from storing.  In non-sifted tea, lumps sometimes remain at the bottom of the tea bowl after drinking.  The sifter will relieve you from the problem.   

 

 
 
 
 
 

Prepare tea before guests come


At tea ceremonies, matcha sifters are not used in the tea room.  They are used in a preparation room before the ceremony begins.   Tea is sifted and transferred into a tea container.  Then, it is ready for the ceremony.

 

 

 

 

This sifter has a basket-type mesh.  It helps in much faster sifting than flat mesh type. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This set includes a spatula, and funnel that help easy transfer.
