To create your perfect bowl of matcha, read 'Chado [A Daily Ritual]'
and watch below for an introduction to this ancient practice.
Without chasen (matcha whisk), it is nearly impossible to make the bowl of smooth, aerated infusion associated with matcha. Hand-carved from a single piece of bamboo, the fine hosaki (prongs) of chasen is crafted specifically for breaking matcha powder into a smooth and creamy creation.
For matcha, a chasen with more prongs is more desirable, creating a layer of delicate foam. The chasen is carved from a single piece of bamboo and the finely crafted hosaki (prongs) are made for breaking the matcha powder into a desirably smooth and creamy creation. Using a traditional Japanese style bamboo whisk is the only way to craft the perfect cup of matcha.
Chado, the Japanese Tea ceremony, is an intricate practice revolving around the four principles of harmony, respect, purity, and tranquility. In this process, matcha green tea and matcha tea utensils play equally crucial roles.
