Key points of this table setting
1. Curating Your Own Matcha Sanctuary
With this matcha tea set from Nishimoto, you can easily recreate the authentic feel of a traditional tea room with all items set in a beautifully crafted wooden box. As you open the box's sides, a delightful surprise awaits—a miniature tea room adorned with the charm of a tatami mat aesthetic. The fixed sides play a role reminiscent of a traditional folding screen, with the auspicious pine trees elegantly painted on the natural wood, immersing you in the spirit of a Japanese tea ceremony.
You can enjoy experiencing many of the steps practiced in chado such as scooping the matcha powder with a chashaku, a tea scoop, or using a chasen to whisk the tea.
As you pour hot water onto the fine matcha powder, hearing the soothing sound of water gently meeting the bowl's sides and witnessing the matcha gracefully disperse on the water's surface, provide a sense of comfort to all senses.
Lightly whisking the matcha is a moment of true calmness. Concentrating on the gentle, rhythmic motion of whisking matcha into a delicate, smooth brew using a chasen brings tranquility to the soul.
Drinking matcha is fully enjoyed with delicate sweetness softening the rich flavor of matcha. Pair your matcha with a Japanese confection, plated on the accompanying wooden plate.
Arrange flowers or greenery in an ikebana-style vase, equipped with a kenzan. This touch of floral artistry adds a layer of tranquility and seasonality, essential to a tea ceremony.
Even the tiniest of decorations can be an expression of your hospitality and attention to detail.
