The Japanese have a reason for everything and the use of matcha tools is no exception. In fact, together with pottery and bamboo artists, these tools have elevated the matcha experience into an art form. With the attention to detail that goes into producing the matcha itself, these tools are necessary for bringing out the subtleness and texture of the precious matcha. The tools described below are the minimum essentials but if you are practicing the tea ceremony, there are a host of other options that aren’t covered in this article.
A chasen is a handmade bamboo whisk containing fine tines, usually 80 or 100, and brings out the aroma and froth of the matcha.
A wire whisk or metal whizzer simply won’t allow the matcha to perform to the best and most delicious consistency and taste.
A new chasen will have a tightly curled bud in the center and curled tines. After a few uses, the chasen will bloom and relax.
Depending on how much the chasen is used and the skill level, it should last about 3 to 6 months.
