Tsuneho Chasen, Matcha Whisk
Approximate measurements: 11cm height x 6cm width

A classic bamboo whisk or Chasen for preparation of Matcha. Easy and approachable for your casual matcha sessions. An essential tool as part of Chanoyu for creating your personal tea ceremony experience.

Made from a single piece of bamboo, split with 64 prongs. Designed as such to efficiently create a fine, smooth and velvety froth, from whisking steadily with the wrist and feathering the tea in a 'w' motion, bringing the whisk up to peak the froth. The whisk is great for using to make Usucha (thin tea) or Koicha (thick tea).

For Usucha (thin tea)

Tea - 2 Chashaku scoops

Water/Temp 50ml / 75*c

Whisk slowly until smooth in a 'w' motion

Add more water to taste.

For Koicha (thick tea)

Tea - 3-4 Chashaku scoops to taste

Water/Temp 25ml / 85*c

Whisk in a 'u' motion

Add 25ml more water and whisk in a circular motion.

Whisk Care: 
Hand wash before first use in hot water, hand washing then after each use of the whisk, allowing to air dry fully to avoid moisture build up. Using the whisk carefully and centrally within the Chawan (Matcha Bowl).

Each unique, therefore slight variations in shape, size will occur.
