Handcrafted from a single piece of bamboo, this whisk is essential for making perfect matcha.
This chasen makes the perfect gift for a lover of green tea. Buy it as an accompaniment to one of our premium matcha teas from Kyoto.
How to Make Perfect Matcha:
We recommend you use not quite boiling water, around 80°C works well.
If you are using a chashaku (a Japanese bamboo teaspoon) we recommend 2 scoops, or 1 scoop from an ordinary teaspoon (approx. 1.5g)
- Add 2 scoops of matcha powder to your tea bowl or cup.
- Pour around 70ml of not quite boiling water into the tea bowl.
- Whisk the matcha with the chasen for about 15 seconds until smooth and slightly foamy.
- Relax and enjoy!
To keep your chasen in the best condition, we recommend you soak the prongs in warm water before each use.
Rinse in hot water after use, and stand to dry.
Bamboo is a natural material and can split if it is dried out. Store in a cool place.
