We are proud to share the ancient art of chasen (tea whisks) with our Matchaful community.
Our KUROTAKE SHIN KAZUHO WHISK is made in the Takayama area of Nara Prefecture in Japan by Kubo Studio. This artisan whisk making workshop’s history spans 24 generations. Under the guidance of Kubo-san, each chasen is handmade by skilled craftspeople using only traditional tools. The bamboo of this particular whisk is from a species known as black bamboo, which gradually changes color after 2 to 3 years. This not only lends the whisk a unique character but is a testament to our patience and determination to source only the best resources involved in every step of your matcha ritual.
* Since the whisks are shaped directly out of bamboo, there is a slight natural variation in size and shape. Your whisk may not match exactly with the one pictured.
