Handmade Takayama matcha whisk in real bamboo adapted to also fit electric matcha whisk. Each whisk is a unique handcraft from Suikaen in Japan, with a tradition over 25 generations, where every single straw is carved and shaped with a special knife and carefully knitted - one by one - with a green thread to perfection Unlike mass-produced matcha pairs, these chasens are completely handmade, without the use of machinery or chemicals to speed up bamboo growing, drying or shaping, which require enormous time and skill to make. As such, the Takayama chases have finer, more flexible sticks and a greater attention to detail, making them not only more beautiful, but also easier and more fun to use and more durable in the long run.

Matcha is a finely ground green tea where the whole leaves from the bush have been pulverized. It is considered one of the world's finest teas and Matcha is traditionally prepared in a slightly larger tea bowl (and then poured into a smaller one) with a bamboo whisk, called the Chasen. A really good matcha wasp should have at least 80 straws - ours has 100 straws! The foam that forms when the Matcha is whipped in the right way (stir with an "M" or "W" motion) is as important as the crema in a good espresso. Eventually, the small knot in the center of the brush will "bloom" and the straws will straighten. Rinse the whisk thoroughly in water after use and allow it to air dry thoroughly. Store in the beautiful packaging (or preferably on a matcha whisk stand) in which it is delivered and it will keep its shape better. Why beat with bamboo and not metal? Well, because hot water causes the catechins (antioxidants) in the matcha to bond with the metal from the whisk. And we want the antioxidants to bind free radicals, not metal - just like with a bamboo whisk!

Användning / Dosering

Stir with an "M" or "W" motion - the foam that forms when matcha is whipped correctly is as important as the crema in a good espresso. Rinse the whisk thoroughly in water, allow to air dry thoroughly and store on a matcha whisk stand to retain its shape after use.
