Add Funmatsucha to culinary grade Matcha!

  • Alex Sanson

We gained some wonderful insights on how to boost culinary grade Matcha with Funmatsucha at Master Kitagawa's tea shop in Oita last week. Here he shows his method for sifting his Asatsuyu leaves in order to separate out loose leaves, tea bag leaves, and culinary quality (perfect for Matcha-flavored ICE CREAM!!!!!!)... The ice cream tasted AMAZING, with the Funmatsucha mixed into the Matcha to elevate the flavor and keep the lingering notes singing away on the palette long after we put down our spoons!


Our Chiki Tea online store offers a wide selection of premium quality Japanese Green Teas, including award-winning Gyokuro and Matcha from Yame, as well as a variety of personally selected loose leaf teas. We work closely with our farmers and suppliers to bring you the best quality teas we can find, most of which are never normally sold outside Japan. We also have a range of specially selected tea-ware and other equipment such as preparation bowls (yuzamashi) and tea-caddies (chazutsu).
