Chasen (Matcha Tea Whisk) by CS | White BambooCamellia Sinensis Collection
The chasen is a traditional tool and is essential for preparing matcha. It is made from a single piece of bamboo with the end cut into several thin slivers to whisk the green tea into a small quantity of water. With a quick motion, the whisked tea is then fully emulsified and attains the proper texture as seen in the famous Japanese tea ceremony – the chanoyu.

An almost essential accessory for anyone using a chasen, the naoshi (chasen-holder) preserves the shape of the whisk while enabling it to dry properly.
