Chasen (Matcha Whisk)
To make Matcha Latte (or also just Matcha) at home, a matcha whisk, also called Chasen, is essential. The Chasen helps you to dissolve the very finely ground matcha powder – for example the Kodemari Matcha that we also use at our café – in a little bit of hot water very easily. After doing so, you may mix it with foamed or cold milk or milk alternatives, as you wish.
Make sure not to use boiling water! Otherwise, your drink will inevitably taste very bitter. We recommend around 80°c and about 2-3 grams of matcha for a 2.5 dl cup. A detailed recipe can also be found in our Brew Guides.
Our tip: Use a fine kitchen strainer when adding the matcha powder to the hot water in order to avoid clumping.
