Compared to gyokuro, sencha, and bancha, which are prepared with a kyusu, matcha has a special atmosphere about it because of the special utensils used in its preparation.
Normally, someone not accustomed to matcha would have no idea how to prepare matcha or where to buy the utensils it requires. As a store that specializes in Japanese green teas, including matcha, Ippodo provides this matcha starter kit with the aim of providing an easy way for newcomers to become acquainted with matcha. We named it Hajime-no-Ippodo in the hopes that it would be Ippodo's matcha that introduced beginners to the joys of matcha.

Containing the following complete set of utensils, Hajime-no-Ippodo provides you with everything you need to make matcha—except the hot water.

- A leaflet in English and Japanese with easy-to-understand illustrations showing how to make matcha and use the utensils
- An 100-tip chasen (bamboo whisk) that is easy for beginners to use
- A chashaku (bamboo tea ladle) that makes scooping matcha powder easy and is resistant to static electricity
- A simple, white chawan (tea bowl)
- A matcha with just the right balance of sweetness and sharpness.

Designed to have the feel of a present—a present for enjoying matcha—the package is adorned with illustrations of matcha powder and utensils in light green lines, and the first thing you see after opening the lid is the inner lid with a big green ribbon.

This handy set makes a great house-warming gift or birthday present. It includes English instructions, so it also makes a great gift to send overseas.
