Grind-only mode

For baking or whisking matcha the traditional way

One fixed level : Approx.1.5g

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.

Pushing the strength button of the matcha maker.
Step 1 

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.

Pressing down the Strength button
Step 2 

First, push the strength button once and the light will turn on.

Second, push and hold the strength button until all three lights blink.

Pressing the Start button
Step 3

After a moment, push start. The lights will stop blinking, but will remain lit.

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.

Color gives you a clue

Freshly-ground V Pre-ground

Preserved at 73°F (23°C) for 2 months.

Because regular, pre-ground matcha powder is finely ground into small particles, more surface area is touched by oxygen than that of whole matcha leaves. This means pre-ground matcha powder oxidizes faster than it does when kept as whole matcha leaves. Being exposed to oxygen is how the initial green color of freshly-ground matcha fades to a yellow-brown tint over time.
