Black Friday, Bamboo Fix
This is the first Black Friday for the boutique. We are offering 1/2 half off on bamboo whisks with purchase of any tin of tea. That’s a $9 saving. Why the whisk? Because if you buy one, and only one essential utensil for preparing matcha tea, then the whisk is it. Part of the reason for the store is to demonstrate the world of matcha live and on the street. At the demo station I show people how whisking matcha aerates the tea, brings oxygen into the mix and enhances the flavor profile of the tea, much like decanting wine wakes up the dormant notes in the bottle. I’ll post later on with some action shots. You can see a video and learn more tips and tricks on the Preparing Matcha Page.
