The Chasen

When it comes to making matcha, the bamboo utensil known as the chasen is indispensable. In the wild, bamboo grows in dense forests where the plants rub up against each other forming scratches and stains. These naturally formed scratches and stains are part of the beauty of chasen, coincidental patterns created by the hand of nature. Many aspects of chasen, each made by an expert hand so as to bring out the natural properties of the bamboo, highlight the skilled craftsmanship that went into their manufacture.

Durability

Tradition has it that a high-quality chasen can last long enough to make over one hundred cups of matcha. If used properly, this chasen is more than durable enough to last that long. Nevertheless, because it is a consumable item, we recommend that you replace it once the tips begin to thin out.

80-tip vs. 100-tip

The difference between the two types of chasen -- the 80-tip and 100-tip -- lies in the number of tips and the thickness of the bamboo. People who prefer a thick handle and newcomers to matcha will probably find the 100-tip chasen easier to use.

(When making matcha, be careful not to use too much force and scrape the bottom of the cup with the tips because this will cause them to bend or break.)
