Description

Basic chasen for the casual matcha lover to get a smooth, silky usucha. Light bamboo is softer and more flexible than dark bamboo. Dark bamboo is sturdier and more durable than light bamboo.

 

Higher number of tines will tend to produce more foam. For the beginner, we recommend Nº 70 and higher.

Care Instructions

• Before using for the first time, wash the chasen and allow to soak in warm water for 15 minutes.

• Subsequently, always wet the tips of the bamboo tines with water before each use. It will help the bamboo be flexible and prevent breakage.

• The furled tips of a new chasen will relax over time and usage. This is normal.

• Wash the chasen gently after each use. You may use your fingers to remove any remaining matcha. Shake off any excess water gently.

• Leave the chasen to air dry. It is best to use a naoshi to rest the chasen on to keep the tines in good shape. Alternatively, you may stand the chasen on its handle with the tines facing up.

• The chasen is a utensil that will naturally wear down over time even with proper use and storage. Please replace should the tines break.
