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
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.
