A whisk is ideal. And also, a lovely aesthetic but we understand that some of you may not have access to one when you want to make your matcha for the first time. We recommend using a sieve to reduce any lumps for a smooth texture before adding your water or plant-based milk. Then you can use a fork, an ordinary milk frother or a blender if you have one handy. Or you can try out our 100% bamboo whisk hand-carved from a single piece of bamboo.
