This traditional bamboo Matcha whisk is (KUROCHIKU Chasen) is skillfully handmade from one piece of natural bamboo, the Chasen is used to whisk Matcha into a delicious frothy brew. There are certain tea ceremony schools using only KUROCHIKU Chasen to maintain the authentic tradition. You are now able to carry on that tradition in your own home with your very own KUROCHIKU Chasen.
This Bamboo Whisk has less than 80 bristles as per the traditional tea ceremony schools' rule. It creates a soft, smooth lather and if stored properly, will remain in good working condition for years.
Hints for a lengthy storage life:
1) We recommend that you get the bamboo whisk wet just before you use it. The bamboo whisk is susceptible to dry conditions. When it is dry, it becomes brittle and easy to break.
2) It is better to store the bamboo whisk in a safe space that will help maintain it's shape.
