Tenugui, a traditional Japanese cotton cloth, is more than just a rectangular towel. It carries a long history and makes a wonderful gift for any occasion.

These were originally made as hand towels, but because of their handy size, great functionality and colourful designs, they began to be used in many different ways.

Add a touch of originality to your gift by wrapping it in a unique Tenugui wrap that can be repurposed later as a wall hanging, towel, table runner or gift wrap.

It can be used to wipe clean your Bamboo Scoop or any Matcha splashes too. 

It's a very eco friendly and thoughtful way of wrapping a gift. 

Print: Plum Blossom Pattern

Measurements :  33cm x 90cm

Material: 100% cotton

Care: We recommend hand washing.

Please Note: The fabric is intentionally designed to have frayed edges. This allows the Tenugui to dry more quickly. The more you use and wash the Tenugui, the less it will fray. 

How to Use

Making a cup of Matcha has never been easier, especially when using our convenient Matcha Shaker.  There are two main ways to make Matcha which are:  

1. Modern Style Matcha Latte (with Milk)

2. Traditional Style Matcha (With Water)


    Matcha Latte
    1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) of Matcha Powder (2 heaped bamboo scoops)
    1 teaspoon of Honey / Maple Syrup
    1/4 cup hot water (no hotter than 80c)
    1 cup of milk of your choice 
    1. Push Matcha through a sieve into a cup or Matcha Shaker to make powder extra fine.
    2. Add water to Matcha and blend with a bamboo whisk or use Matcha Shaker to dissolve the powder.
    3. Heat Milk on the stove (For an Iced Latte - used chilled milk) 
    4. Add Sweetener (optional)
    5. Whisk or use a Matcha shaker to combine once more
    6. Pour into a cup of your choice (For Iced, add in ice cubes) 
    7. Top with extra Matcha powder if desired 
    Tea Shaker
      If you don't own our Matcha Shaker simply follow these steps instead to make a cup of Matcha:
      1. Push the Matcha Powder through a sieve into your cup 
      2. Pour in around 1/2 cup of hot water (no hotter than 80 degrees)
      3. Blend the Matcha and liquid by mixing with a spoon vigorously (Tip - you can also use a handheld milk frother or bamboo whisk to blend) 
      4. Top up with Hot water (or frothed milk if you're making a Latte)  and enjoy. 


      Japanese Matcha Green Tea in Chawan

      1. Take 2 bamboo tea scoops (around 1/2 teaspoon) of Matcha and place into the included tea sieve which sits on top of the Matcha Shaker (with lid removed).
      2. Push the Matcha through the tea sieve into the shaker. This ensures the Matcha powder is nice and fine with no lumps.
      3. Remove the tea sieve and fill the shaker with around 120 ml (1/2 cup) of water or milk and close the cap tightly (optimum temperature is 80 degrees).
      4. Shake the Matcha Shaker about 10-20 times from up to down. Make sure the cap, silicon ring and bottle are tightly shut.
      5. Pour the Matcha into a cup or bowl to enjoy.

        Health Benefits

        The health benefits of drinking antioxidant-rich Matcha Green Tea are many.

          Matcha Health Benefits

          It provides: 

          • a natural energy boost which keeps you going all day
          • feelings of calm, keeping anxious thoughts & stress away
          • improved focus and concentration
          • detoxifying which helps fight free radicals and effects of ageing
          • help with a healthy immune system
          • boosted metabolism and help with weight loss

          Let's break it down in a little more detail below so you can see how Matcha can transform your mind and body for the better.


          Coffee vs Matcha Caffeine Energy Levels Graphic

          • Matcha does contain caffeine which provides energy, but only 1/3 of the amount found in coffee. Matcha provides a slow steady release of caffeine into the blood stream, sustaining you over several hours. This is the key difference between Matcha and Coffee as the latter gives a sharp spike of energy but then drops quite suddenly, causing you to crave more. Matcha is a much more effective way of getting the energy you need without the nasty side effects or cravings of Coffee. 


            L-theanine and Serotonin and Dopamine

            • Matcha contains an amazing amino acid known as L-theanine that positively affects alpha waves in the brain, helping you feel relaxed and reduces feelings of anxiety or stress. Matcha also increases dopamine and serotonin levels which positively improves your mood, making you feel happy.  


            L-theanine & Caffeine Graphic

            • The combination of caffeine and L-theanine found in Matcha has been shown to improve memory retention and help with faster reaction time. Matcha helps you feel more productive and keeps you focused and concentrate on the task at hand. 



            Matcha Detoxifies and is Anti Ageing

            • In the week's leading up to tea harvest the plants that become Matcha get covered in shade to block sunlight and increase chlorophyll production. Chlorophyll can help improve liver function, which can help increase your body’s ability to flush out toxins. Chlorophyll has also been shown to help with the excretion of heavy metals, dioxins, and other persistent chemicals.
            • Matcha also contains Catechins, which are potent cancer-fighters counteracting the effect of pollutants, chemicals, UV rays, and radiation.
            • Matcha contains the vitamins A, C, K and B complex that help with renewal of skin cells. This helps reduce the the signs of premature ageing and promotion of supple and smoother skin. 


            Matcha boots immunity

            • Matcha contains one of the highest natural sources of antioxidants, higher than blueberries, chia seeds and other superfoods you may be familiar with. The antioxidants help fight free radicals in the system to keep your immune system fighting fit and healthy.
            • Matcha is the best natural source of the plant based catechin EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate) which helps the body produce T-cells that fight pathogen and virus. Read more about it here


            Matcha helps with weight loss increases metabolism graphic

            • That wonderful EGCG plant compound helps here too! In conjunction with caffeine found in Matcha it can assist with boosting metabolism which in turn increases your body's ability to burn calories. 
            • Matcha also helps your body absorb and use the fat in your body as an energy source when working out.
