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.
Naoshi (Chasen Holder)Camellia Sinensis Collection
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.
In fact, drying a chasen upside down with the handle on a table increases the risk of surplus moisture in the base, where the fine fronds bind to the bamboo handle.
