Chasen Matcha Whisk

Hand-crafted, 100-pronged bamboo whisk used to froth matcha

Achieve a perfectly frothy bowl of matcha with our hand-crafted bamboo matcha whisk.

Material: Bamboo

Origin: China 

While there are countless utensils used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, perhaps none are as essential as the chasen. The matcha whisk is used to aerate the tea and create the froth and foam that make matcha so pleasing to the senses.

Our 100-pronged whisk is skillfully hand-carved from a single piece of bamboo using traditional methods. While fundamentally a utensil, the beauty of the detail, material and its shape make the whisk a work of art worthy of displaying.

To achieve that much-desired matcha froth, whisk briskly in W-shaped strokes, allowing the wrist to do the bulk of the work.

Our chasen is packaged in a plastic cylinder to protect its form and maintain shape.
