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'.
This Chasen is efficent and beautifully made. I have mine from few months now and looks still perfect. I can tell the quality is above many others had in the past. Is also very elegant to display in our kitchen!
I love it everything was just great love the sweet aroma a slight floral scent with the bitter after note was just Devine
Works really well!
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.
