Chasen (Matcha Tea Whisk) by CS | White Bamboo

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.

This original chawan, robust and wide-bottomed, is a great choice for both novices and expert matcha lovers. Wider chawans facilitate the movement of the Chasen and give extra room to properly dissolve and whisk the matcha, for a perfect emulsion.
