For hundreds of years, matcha tea has been prepared with the same tools: a bamboo spoon to correctly measure the delicate powder, a bamboo whisk to give your matcha its creamy and delicious mousse.
The bamboo matcha whisk (called a chasen in Japanese) is handmade by specialized artisans from a single piece of bamboo, which is meticulously cut into 100 bristles.
It is not possible to make these bamboo whisks using a machine, so they are all unique. Our bamboo matcha whisks are designed to create a perfectly creamy and foamy matcha.
The bamboo spoon (called a chashaku in Japanese) is traditionally used to measure out a small quantity of matcha to prepare a tea.
This spoon is sculpted from a piece of bamboo and then passed through hot steam to be hand bent. It's a process that requires a lot of patience and dexterity to keep the bamboo from breaking.
With a bamboo spoon and a bamboo matcha whisk with 100 bristles, you have the perfect accessories to prepare a matcha with smooth and creamy foam!
