  • We went crazy when Porlex first sent us a sample of these matcha tea grinders and now Porlex has gone and created the Spice Mill II. The Spice Mill II has the same great ceramic burrs but now those burrs fit into the same casing as the Porlex Mini coffee grinder! Nothing compares to premium quality authentic matcha powder from Japan (ground from tencha leaves on huge stone grinders).... but if you want to make matcha powder out of other teas, incorporate tea into your cooking and baking, or want to save money by making your own green matcha powder for smoothies or lattes - then you will love this portable grinder

    With the same hard-wearing quality as the Porlex coffee grinders, the tea mill also uses ceramic burrs to grind any type of tea leaf down to a fine powder.Experiment with different types of tea - so far we've made a Ceylon salad dressing, English Breakfast truffles, and Darjeeling scones. You could try creating flavoured salts, stirring into yogurt and ice cream, or adding to tempura batter - the possibilities are endless! We've also made countless bowls of matcha using different kinds of tea. By drinking or cooking with matcha powder, you are ingesting the entire tea leaf, along with all its health benefits!

Excellent tea grinder!

It’s done so delicately made! No burning smell from grinding. Of course, like all manual grinders, you need to exercise some effort to get it started but once you got it it’s very smooth!

Definitely grinds a matcha grind

This grinder is a bit tricky to use and really requires some effort; however, I appreciate the exercise. I bring my grinder to work with me and I'll grind for a few minutes at a time when I'm between clients. Grind too much too fast and the burrs will heat up. I mostly use it for grinding yerba mate into matcha. You really have to figure out how tightly to tighten the burrs. Too tight and the burrs get gummed up and nothing gets ground besides it being too difficult to grind. Too loose and you get very gritty matcha. Now mostly you will get some grittiness but that's usually not the fault of the grinder but is instead in the material you try to grind. The Japanese remove the stems of sencha tea leaves to make tencha. Tencha will grind fine but not sencha. So if there's something like stems in your tea, you till get some grittiness. I'm ok with that b/c this grinder really grinds it down well enough for me. Also, the burrs need cleaned once each hopper load you grind. Just put the burrs in some water, let them soak for an hour or so, scrub with a toothbrush, rinse and dry. Easy just don't forget to do it. Without cleaning, I learned teh burrs can get gummed together. Then they are difficult to separate. I find this manual grinder to definitely be worth the money. I've ground pounds of yerba mate since buying mine. The grinding process is time consuming but I like the exercise.
