    You may have noticed that matcha green tea has been having a bit of a ~moment~ in recent years. The potent green tea is being baked into pies, infused into face masks, and brewed into trendy Starbucks drinks.

    There are a few special tools used to make an authentic cup of ceremonial matcha tea. Most are fairly inexpensive and can be found on Amazon:

    1. A high-quality, organic ceremonial matcha powder that's totally worth the price — the proof is in the drink!

    2. A traditional matcha whisk, scoop, and spoon set made from natural bamboo, so you can make the perfectly balanced cup of tea.

    3. A ceramic whisk holder, to ensure your whisk keeps its shape no matter how often you use it.

    4. A stirring bowl, traditionally called a chawan, for stirring your matcha powder.

    Now go impress your friends by talking about your chasen, chawan, and chashaku in casual conversation. Here’s a big green cheers to #TeamMatcha!
