Convenience is rarely a factor in personal preparation of matcha. Maybe if I was making a matcha smoothie or matcha beverage.

But that is virtually never the case.

The preparation with traditional tools helps to create a mindset conducive to the full experience that is matcha. There is almost always a degree of ceremony in my personal prep and experience and enjoyment of matcha.

Look at the cup pictured with the "cappuccino mixer"--you've got a lot of
"frog eyes." If you want convenience, you can just put the powder in your mouth, chug some water, and swish it around. No batteries required.

Agree with chip. The traditional tools are more conducive to a meditative state and deeper enjoyment

I use both often but for different style. Bamboo whisk when I got time and more relax and with warm water. Cappuccino mixer when I am on the fast track. I whisk the tea with carbonated water at room temperature. It is super delicious, please try it.

Cheers! :D

This. Fantastic for when you're in a bit if a rush. Don't need to clean anything after, either. Except maybe your teeth...

That's the same problem with using a "cappuccino" mixer for cappuccinos, you get huge bubbles that ruin the texture. You still can get the same problem with the bamboo whisk (or a proper steam arm for cappuccinos) but at least with the right technique you'll get only small bubbles and better texture :)

I have a whisk but I find myself using the milk frother more often in the mornings, etc.
