Product Description

This Whisk (Chasen) is specially designed for Matcha. It has 120 Prongs and is handmade from golden bamboo by skillful craftsmen in Zhejiang province, China.

Made from Jin Bamboo (golden bamboo), unlike the other Bai bamboo (white bamboo). These Chasen bristles won't get twisted easily and the chasen is very durable. 

This 120 prong Chasen is extremely good at making frothy thin Matcha (Usucha) for Japanese tea ceremony or your daily matcha drink.

Using a whisk:

Use only a bamboo whisk – not only traditional but also most effective since the prongs are flexible and will increase the motion generated during whisking. Use a cup or bowl that is large enough to fit the whisk with a bit of room to spare. After the cup/bowl has been pre-warmed, add in the matcha powder and whisk vigorously.

There are two different whisking methods:

  1. Usucha where you whisk briskly in a “W” motion using your wrist (not arm) until the matcha has a thick froth on the surface.
  2. Koicha that uses a slower kneading action from left to right, up and down, and a gentle 360° circular motion to make a thick consistency that is smooth and has no froth.
