Rishi Matcha Tea Bamboo Whisk
Rishi's hand-crafted bamboo whisk or chasen, a traditional tool, and perfect for use with your bowl of matcha or matcha latte. Hand-split from a single piece of golden bamboo with 80 finely carved tines, makng it ideal for whisking matcha thoroughly to create nice rich foam. Comes in a handy hard plastic container to protect its delicate prongs.
Place the chasen in a bowl of hot water before each use to help soften the bamboo tines, making the chasen more flexible and springy for effective whisking action. Rinse the chasen thoroughly in warm water after each use to rinse off any remaining matcha foam.
The life of a chasen can be extended by storing it in a relatively humid environment. A dry environment might cause the chasen to split along the handle, which is expected over time from a standard quality chasen. Rishi's bamboo matcha whisk will have effective whisking action for over 200 bowls of matcha.
