- Powder mode
Use the grind-only setting for hand-whisking and ceremony
In the era of Sen-no-rikyu, tea masters ground the leaves into matcha powder just before serving. Although most matcha is now only available as pre-ground powder, we’ve included a grind-only function so you can have freshly-ground matcha for ceremonial use.
Place the dry whisking cup (without the whisk) on the platform, below the metal funnel, with the spout pointing away from you and towards the back of the Matcha Maker.
First, push the strength button once and the light will turn on.
Second, push and hold the strength button until all three lights blink.
After a moment, push start. The lights will stop blinking, but will remain lit.
Wait as your fresh matcha falls from the grinder. The grinding process will take three minutes and a beep will indicate your powder is ready. The grind-only mode makes 1.5 grams of powder.

The Chashaku is an elegantly carved bamboo scoop for measuring matcha powder. The chasen is a whisk meticulously cut from a single piece of bamboo, ready to transform your matcha powder into a frothy tea. Both are made in Japan.
The ceremonial set is gently packed into an elegant kiri bako, a nail-free box made from paulownia wood. Kiri bako is traditionally-designed, durable and known for keeping out moisture and pests, making it popular for food storage or meal-toting.
