The chasen matcha whisk is an essential tool for making the perfect bowl of matcha.

Size 5" × 5" × 4.3"
MaterialBamboo
OriginSouth Korea

This whisk is meticulously made by hand out of bamboo, one-by-one. Its fine, springy tips allow for quick matcha whisking. Matcha whisked with a chasen has a smooth texture and a fine aroma.

A 80 tip chasen is made from a slightly smaller stalk of bamboo, so it has a smaller handle. Those with medium or smaller size hands may find it easier to hold.

Clean the chasen after each use by rinsing in water. Store in the open air to allow it to dry completely. We recommend storing it tips-down on a Whisk Stand (Chasen Tate) to keep its shape. Do not store it in the plastic case it comes in, as it may develop mold.

This chasen is hand-made by artisans in South Korea who were taught the craft by a master artisan from Japan. Each whisk is quality-checked by Ippodo before being accepted. These chasen are used in the Ippodo tearooms and shops in Kyoto, Tokyo, and New York.

Instructions

Follow these tips to keep your Chasen in optimal condition.
