Bamboo matcha whisk (chasen) in the Shin Kazuho style, handcrafted by the 20th generation Tanimura Tango using white bamboo that is dried for three years.
Shin Kazuho grade is the main whisk used by the Urasenke school during tea ceremonies and is sturdy enough for making usucha and koicha.
Made in Ikoma, Japan (Nara)
To remove the chasen from its box, carefully tear it out. Remove the paper remaining on the base by rubbing it with your wet finger until it is completely removed. It is not recommended to soak the whisk in water. The adhesive used is completely natural. Please understand that bamboo has a tendency to snap/crack, and although we inspect every piece before shipping, we cannot guarantee that it will arrive in tact nor that it will not crack after use. Thank you for your understanding and support for this handmade tool.
