Japanese Hand-made Matcha Whisks (Chasen) | Authentic Matcha Utensil
This special arrangement of matcha whisks (chasens) are exclusively Japanese Hand-made.
These traditional matcha utensils are exceptionally noteworthy for the family lineage hand-making them. Our associate producers in Nara, Japan are part of a 24-generation lineage involved in the authentic production of traditional bamboo matcha utensils.
Traditionally Crafted Authentic Quality
We are incredibly proud of our relationship and being able to help support and share this authentic part of matcha tradition. These very same products have been internationally recognized, toured in museum exhibitions, and have a great depth of history.
Conventional Style Whisks (shorter shaft handles)
There are three (3) conventional style whisks to choose from. They are made from unique bamboo variants and perform the same function. You may select based on preference of handle shape, and color.*
Matcha Muddler Whisk (longer shaft handle)
This is a black bamboo traditional muddler (style of chasen) for whipping matcha, thick matcha, aerating green teas, and generally very versatile – especially for tumbler-shaped mixing cups.
*As each product is hand-made, and a natural product at that, the specific bamboo-coloration will vary from the photos

What makes our Matcha Best?
It was pleasing to see growing awareness of matcha in America, but we were dismayed by the low qualities available when visiting cafés, tea shops, and restaurants. So, on our following trips to Japan, we purchased small tins of the quality tea to bring home, along with tea bowls, scoops, and whisks. Soon we were in the habit of drinking a bowl of matcha twice a day! Turning loved ones onto it, and leading a growing audience into giving it a try.
100% Authentic Stone-ground Matcha
Our matcha is primarily produced from tea leaves grown in the region of Japan known as Uji, Kyoto. Through an exclusive relationship with our tea-farm (Japan's oldest and most authentic), we're able to share the most exquisite matcha that Japan has to offer – grown on the purest, most carefully maintained land. And each year, the tea-master specially blends the best leaves into the matcha we enjoy today. Since most of this quality of matcha stays for enjoyment within Japan, we're honored to have the chance to share it with you.
Premium Ceremonial Grade Matcha
We cherish the opportunity to share matcha from Japan’s oldest authentic tea farm. Each year, they produce limited quantities of true Premium Ceremonial Grade quality matcha. We’re grateful to be one of the select few allowed to access their tea, which has been precisely cultivated using the same methods (shading, hand-picking) for nearly a millennium. Passed down each generation, the same family has cared for the farm for more than half that time – offering an essential balance of cost point, calming energy, and health benefits**.
The Excellence of Uji-Matcha®
Our matcha is of exceptional quality, grown entirely on the pristine hillsides of Uji, Kyoto, where Japanese matcha originated one thousand years ago. Matcha from Uji is prized as the finest in the world. We are proud to be the only bulk source in the Americas offering 100% true, traditional Uji-matcha®.
Preparing the perfect bowl of matcha
Making matcha can be fun and surprisingly easy! You can do a more traditional preparation, or a convenient one if you're busy. Here's quick steps anyone can use:
Heat water in a kettle until steam first appears; this will be well below boiling, about 180°F. Turn off heat.
Use a tea scoop or 1tsp to measure matcha and sift into a bowl to prevent clumps.
Add 2-4oz of water for desired consistency.
Sip and enjoy.
