INTRODUCING THE TEA SHAKER - AN EASY WAY TO ENJOY MATCHA
A Bamboo whisk (Chasen) is traditionally used in Japanese Tea Ceremony to blend the tea powder with water. However, the technique required to use the whisk is often challenging for the uninitiated to achieve that rich frothy finish which is most desirable in a cup of Matcha.
The Tea Shaker was designed and developed in Japan by our tea supplier to offer an easy way to enjoy Matcha without need for a bamboo whisk.
It performs the same function as a Bamboo Whisk yet makes for an easy and fuss free way to make a lovely cup of Matcha .
WHAT'S THE SECRET?
The many holes found under the lid help produce delicate soft bubbles of Matcha which lead to an incredibly smooth and foamy texture to your Matcha (or Houjicha).
WHAT IS IT MADE FROM?
This unique Tea Shaker device is made out of BPA-free Tritan. Products made from Tritan are impact and shatter resistant, Plus they stay durable even after years of repeated use.
It is completely free of bisphenol A (BPA), bisphenol S and any other bisphenol compounds as well as estrogenic and androgenic activity.⠀
Fits 330ml of liquid
It also comes with a removable steel sieve that sits atop the Tea Shaker cylinder so the tea can be pushed through to create an extra fine powder
A reusable lightweight device, perfect to pop in your bag and take to the office, gym, university or anywhere you may need a Matcha or Houjicha pick up. ⠀
You can make delicious frothy Matcha or Houjicha anywhere. ⠀
CHOOSE FROM: Clear or Floral Design
HOW TO USE:
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:
- Take 1 scoop of Matcha and place into the included tea strainer which sits on top of the Tea Shaker (with lid removed)
- Push the Matcha through the tea strainer into the shaker. This ensures the Matcha powder is nice and fine with no lumps.
- Remove the tea strainer and fill shaker with around 120 ml (1/2 cup) of water or milk and close the cap tightly (optimum temperature is 80 degrees)
- Shake the bottle about 10-20 times from up to down. Make sure the cap, silicon ring and bottle are tightly shut.
Enjoy the Matcha directly from the bottle or pour the Matcha in to a cup
(Note: These steps can also be followed for making a cup of Houjicha)
- Our Certified Econic Home Compostable Packaging is perfect for storing matcha as it protects it from exposure to air, heat and light that make Matcha appear dull and bitter.
- Econic® packaging is made from three compostable films derived from sustainably-produced wood pulp and GM-free corn sources.
- The three films are laminated together to provide the barrier properties required to lock in the taste and freshness of coffee and dry foods. - You can put your used Econic® bags in your own home compost or worm farm, containing heat, water, oxygen, soil and micro-organisms.
- They can also be disposed of in a commercial composting facility if you have one in your area.
- Compost trials have shown that Econic® bags can break down into small fragments in as little as 16 weeks.
- Our product labels are also home compostable, produced by Black Rainbow Printing.

The tea shaker has made my morning ritual of matcha lattes so easy, enjoyable and fun. It is such a treat to whip up frothy lattes in only a few seconds of shaking. Easy to clean, keep and store without needing a large frothing machine. It will upgrade your experience if you don't already have one!
I used to whisk my matcha, but it was always a hassle, and the whisk didn't actually last long. The tea shaker is so much easier! And I was able to take it with me on holidays, which I couldn't do with the whisk and bowl. It also lasts longer, I've been using it for about a year now, and despite a few drops and whatsnot, it's still perfect.
A good investment for those who are constantly on the go but need their Matcha hit! Very easy to use and clean.
Found the tea shaker very easy to use, especially for people with weak wrists who can't do the W whisk with the bamboo whisker.
