About whisk maker Kizou Nakata

 

This Portable Matcha Tea Ware Set contains:

Matcha “Kyo Mukashi” 40 g


This is a high quality Matcha commonly used in Japanese tea ceremonies (cha-no-yu). It is a classic, thin-style Matcha (Usucha), high in antioxidants and very popular with our customers. The tea is rich with an intense, green colour and sweet, aromatic aftertaste. It comes in a 40 g (about 1.5 oz) hermetically, double-sealed tin.

Mino Matcha Bowl (Gifu Prefecture)


Mino ceramic ware was historically made in the town of Tajimi in the old province of Mino (now the south-eastern part of Gifu Prefecture). Sueki-ware from the seventh century has been discovered in the area, and Mino was mentioned by name in 905 CE as a place for fine, ash-glazed stoneware. During the Kamakura and Muromachi periods, the use of the potter’s wheel, as well as a greater variety of glazes, generated more sophisticated pottery in styles initially derived from China. The excavation of Mino ceramics from Daimyo residences throughout Japan testifies to their popularity in all following eras of Japan’s history. This bowl belongs to a long tradition of high quality pottery from the region.

Measurements: upper diameter 98 m, height 65 mm, lower diameter 47 mm

Weight: 200 g

Capacity: about 250 ml

*This bowl is not sold separately.*

Whisk Stand & 50 ml Measuring Cup


A very helpful tool for preparing your Matcha! When filled with hot water to the upper line of the bamboo design, it measures exactly 50 ml. This is the proper amount of water one should use for a bowl of Matcha (for 2 g of powder). The smaller cylinder attached to the measuring cup serves as a whisk stand.

Nakata Kizo, whisk maker and bamboo craftsman


Kizo Nakata was born in 1940 in Takayama, Ikoma, Nara Prefecture.

Though he was the son of a rice farmer, at the age of 14, he was sent to acquire skillful hands by learning to make whisks as an apprentice. After 6 years of study, he continued to learn various techniques before becoming independent at the age of 25.

In 1975, he founded the Kizo Nakata company, which presently produces about half of Japan’s whisks.

About your chasen:
A bamboo whisk is a very delicate tea utensil that might have to be replaced when the tines wear off or break.
When left moist, it might also produce mold. Please replace your whisk if you detect mold on it or if several tines are broken.
About your chashaku:
A bamboo scoop is a very delicate Matcha tea utensil.
Please do not use it with force or bend it unduly, as it might break. Always keep it clean and dry.
Please replace it if you detect any traces of mold.
