Bamboo Matcha Whisk
These traditional, hand-made bamboo matcha whisks are called “Chasen” in Japan. They are exquisitely beautiful works of art created using a design handed down for centuries in Japan. The original craftsmen for Chasen came from a family in the ancient city of Nara in Japan, and this family design for making perfect bamboo whisks was coveted for many centuries. It has since been taught to other artisans, making these beautiful works of art more available. This perfect design utilizes a single piece of bamboo, which is carefully split and carved to produce a tool specifically for blending matcha powder.
Bamboo is used exclusively for making Chasen due to its incredible strength and flexibility. Bamboo is also very symbolic in Zen tradition as it symbolizes emptiness (hollow), strength, and flexibility, which are all traits upheld in Zen Buddhism.
