Traditional bamboo matcha whisk
A handcrafted matcha whisk used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies to prepare perfectly smooth matcha
This handmade bamboo whisk, known as a ‘chasen’ (茶筅), is traditionally used in Japanese tea ceremonies to prepare perfectly smooth matcha. Handcrafted from a single piece of winter-hardened bamboo by specialist chasen artisans in a family workshop that has been crafting these ceremonial masterpieces for generations, each traditional bamboo chasen is truly a unique work of art. It features 100 tines, each of which has been expertly cut, meticulously woven with string, and curled at the tip to allow for the tea to be efficiently whisked to create smooth-tasting matcha — a beautiful work of craftsmanship that will add elegance and sophistication to your daily #MatchaRitual.
Dimensions: Diameter 60mm / Height 105mm
+/-10% variations may occur due to the handmade nature of the product
After each use, rinse with cold water and stand, tines up, to dry in a well-ventilated area. With use, the twisted centre and outer tips of the whisk will gradually unfurl; this is a natural process traditionally known as 'blooming'.
I have tried so many whisk but this one trust me is one of the best from the lots.It gives that smooth taste to mt matcha.
I bought this bamboo chasen because my old one that was given to me by a friend broke down. The Chasen that came in the parcel by Matchaeologist is very durable. I have been using it for a week and the quality is incomparable to the one I used to have. It makes whisking matcha so much easier – sooo much easier! It fits really well with the matcha bowl that I have.
I bought this whisk two weeks ago and It has been working really well. It is well made and seems like it would last a long time compared to my old chasen I bought from Amazon. Easy to store and only take minutes to dry completely.
