Matcha Whisk (Chasen)

£9.99

Hand-made Matcha Temple Whisk or Chasen. This 100 prong Chasen is made from bamboo and designed to ensure that you get the most from your Matcha. Place your Matcha powder in a Chawan or bowl. Pour in around 70ml of 75C water. Whisk the matcha by writing a “W” in the bowl using the Chasen until the matcha has formed a frothy lather. Dimension: H 11.5* W 6.5 CM, 100 prongs. Whisks in Japanese are measured in units called "Ben"(80ben;100ben,120ben....). The unit ben refers to the diameter of the Bamboo used for carving the whisk and it is classified as follows: 80 ben Diameter 2.3 to 2.5cm with 72 + stripes 100 ben Diameter 2.6 to 2.8cm with 80+ stripes 120 ben Diameter 2.9 to 3.2cm with 85+ stripes The whisks are handmade and no two pieces of bamboo are the same and so prong quantity is only a guide. The number of outer prongs (Waishui) added to the inner prongs (Neishui) will be much larger than the number advised.
