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'.

It’s amazing to hear that you enjoy our Traditional Chasen Bamboo Whisk, Karin! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us! We really appreciate your kind words. Please do not hesitate to share some photos of your matcha with us at some point if you have a chance! – Matchaeologist Team
It's really good but I also bought the cloud glass chawan and would have really liked to know that the chasen is too large to whisk in it. I'm now thinking about getting the other whisk because of that which is a little annoying.
Thank you for your review of our Traditional Chasen, Tereza! We will certainly relay your feedback to our team to state it more clearly on the website that the Cloud Glass Chawan is more compatible with the Full-Hand Chasen (the thinner whisk). We do really appreciate your kind feedback and will continue to work hard to ensure we deliver the best quality products and customer service going forward. We look forward to serving you again! – Matchaeologist Team
Thank you for supplying this great tasting matcha which is delicious on its own as well as when making matcha lattes, blends very well with with the brush which we had gotten from you. Great taste with regular milk as well as our alternative milks: coconut milk and oat. Latte art looks beautiful on the beautiful and smooth green background. Thank you
