Authentic method reimagined for the modern world
- Like a traditional stone mill, grinds tea leaves into fine powder
- Average particle size: 6.1 μm
- Aluminum chamber prevents oxidation of matcha leaves
- Holds leaves for up to 20 matcha shots
- Rotates at high speed to mimic traditional whisking
- Synchronized with ceramic mill for a perfectly frothy cup
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.
What experts are saying
“Our team of chefs and sommeliers was so incredibly impressed with the flavor of Cuzen Matcha. The pure expression of the tea is amazing and it’s an outstanding way to taste matcha the way it’s meant to be enjoyed. We look forward to featuring the Cuzen system in our inn rooms for our guests to enjoy.”

It’s higher in antioxidants, too

Data collected at Japan Food Research Laboratories.
Preserved at 98°F (37°C) for 2 months.
As pre-ground matcha powder is very fine, it oxidizes much more quickly than whole matcha leaves do. Even after two months of storage, whole matcha leaves keep a higher level of antioxidants (ORAC* value) than regular, pre-ground matcha powder. This means that not only is a cup of freshly-ground matcha tastier and brighter, it packs more antioxidants, as well.
