How to care for your Matcha whisk

Whisking is the key to making the perfect cup of green tea matcha. But to make sure your whisk is ready to whip into action, you need to take care of it properly. Care is all part of the tradition for the true matcha lover who's interested in making a smooth, clump-free cup with a nice froth on top.

Here are four simple steps (plus a bonus tip) to care for your matcha whisk:

Step 1: Always wash

Wash your matcha whisk thoroughly and immediately after each use. Why? Made of natural bamboo, traditional bamboo whisks (also called a “chasen”) can be susceptible to mold growth if left moist for too long. 

Step 2: How to clean a bamboo matcha whisk

Rinse your whisk by running hot water through all the bristles (or prongs). Make sure that there isn't any matcha left on the bristles. Do not use soap and definitely never put it in the dishwasher. 

Step 3: Air dry

Simply let your whisk air dry. Make sure you always place your whisk with the bristles pointing down so any water drops can drain out, and not trapped at the handle.

Step 4: How to store a matcha whisk 

After waiting until it is completely dried, it is safe to store. Now you'll do the opposite from the drying, and remember to keep it upright so it is not sitting on the bristles.

PRO TIP: Soak your bamboo whisk before use

Before making your cup of matcha, soak the whisk in warm water. This will soften the bristles which will help you achieve that perfect green froth you love so much.

If you follow these simple steps, your matcha whisk can last one or two years depending on the frequency of use. If you notice the bristles beginning to break or lose their shape, it's time to replace it with a new one.

      Hi Brenda - If you like more of the chocolate notes, have you tried blending the Samurai Spirit with our Maharaja Oolong Chai? It is a delicious blend that will give you a little more spice and chocolate with cocoa nibs and cinnamon...a personal fave! :)
