A very special chasen that we are very lucky to be able to offer to our customers! Uraku chasen are requested by, and specifically made for, tea masters at Uraku-ryu (The Uraku school of tea ceremony in Japan)! Quite unique to this whisk is the node of the bamboo is at the bottom of the handle, and also the interlaced string is an unfamiliar white, not black. A very fine, beautifully crafted artisan chasen! Made from natural Japanese bamboo in Takayama, Nara, Japan by Japanese artisan whisk maker Yasaburo Tanimura.
PLEASE NOTE: This is an artisan whisk with thin prongs that is specifically designed by Yasaburo Tanimura for preparing Usucha (thin matcha), not Koicha (thick matcha). If you need a whisk for preparing Koicha (thick matcha), please consider our Chuaraho Whisk. It has thicker and fewer prongs and is designed exclusively for preparing Koicha (thick matcha).
|Usage||Usucha (Thin Matcha)|
