The Chasen is one of the key accessories in the matcha preparation, so it is vital to have the right kind and quality to make good matcha.
The whisk has to be carved from a single piece of bamboo, requiring a great degree of skill to form the evenly balanced and finely shaped fronds.
The manufacturer where our Chasens are from preserves the tradition of 500 years in Nara Prefecture, Japan.
All the products are handmade by skilled craftsmen under the guidance of the master. They have received the patronage of many people for their high quality and reliability, and they continue to have the top track record in the industry. The former master was certified as a traditional craftsman by the Minister of International Trade and Industry and he received the Minister of International Trade and Industry Award. In 2008, they exhibited their work at the Louvre Palace Museum in Paris, France.
It is very important to clean the matcha accessories after using them. That's why we recommend using our whisk holder in order to preserve your Chasen.
