This expertly handcrafted Matcha tea whisk, also known as a Chasen, is made from a single piece of bamboo. It has been used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies for centuries. Bamboo is the material of choice due its flexibility and durability. When whisking vigorously, it will bend to the shape of the matcha bowl to protect the bowl’s finish, yet retain its own shape when done whisking. Bamboo is also ideal because it does not give off nor absorb odours and tastes so it won’t compromise the flavour of the matcha tea.
