Dark Bamboo Whisk (Chasen)
Our beautiful dark wood chasens are handmade from strong wild purple bamboo. The Bamboo Whisk is the authentic traditional tool to prepare a perfect cup of matcha. This was the utensil used thousands of years ago during traditional Japanese tea ceremonies.
Skillfully use the whisk in a zigzag motion until frothy. It will give the matcha green tea a smooth and frothy, light consistency, heightening the matcha experience.
Why do you need a whisk?
Because forks and spoons and metal whisks will never properly mix up the matcha - you will always have clumps and you won’t get the froth that the bamboo whisk (created specifically for matcha mixing) creates. It's a must have for preparing the best cup of matcha.
* Since the whisks are shaped directly out of bamboo, there is a slight natural variation in size and shape. Your whisk may not match exactly with the one pictured.
