This excellent matcha whisk, known as chasen in Japanese, is an essential tool for whisking matcha in a Japanese tea ceremony. When paired with a matcha bowl, it allows you to enjoy an authentic matcha experience at home.

Traditionally crafted from bamboo, a chasen is meticulously designed to blend matcha powder smoothly with hot water in a matcha bowl. Bamboo offers the ideal balance of flexibility, allowing for swift whisking without damaging the inside surface of the matcha bowl.

The chasen is delicately crafted by splitting a single piece of bamboo into fine bristles, which are then artfully bound together with a thin black string to secure them in place. The tips are curled inward to safeguard their delicate ends. Every slender tip is carefully positioned, reflecting a display of exceptional craftsmanship.

Using this with a matcha whisk holder, a traditional tool for aligning the bristles of the chasen, is highly recommended to ensure its proper shape and longevity.

NOTE: After use, make sure to rinse the matcha whisk with water and allow it to dry completely. Avoid returning the whisk in the plastic case while it is still damp, as this can lead to mold growth.
