Brewing Matcha with Paper & Tea
Introducing the Matcha Starter Kit
To prepare a serving of matcha, the leaves of a shade-grown green leaf plant have their steams and veins removed and are then blended into a fine powder. The powder is then pushed through a tight sieve using a wooden spatula and whisked into carefully measured servings of hot water. We visited the tea specialists at Paper & Tea to learn more about the ceremonious traditions of brewing matcha and how to use their Matcha Starter Kit.
In addition to offering the five-piece set in Gestalten Pavilion, we are holding a raffle to give away a P&T Matcha Starter Kit. To enter, simply send your name to feedback [at] gestalten.com before 6 p.m. on Friday, December 11.
