1 x Bamboo Chasen
This is a fine product which is made from actual bamboo and it does a superb job. The traditional bamboo whisk
(also called chasen
) is necessary for making that perfect matcha.You will produce a lump free and frothy cup of matcha with this traditional Japanese bamboo matcha whisk. The art of drinking matcha green tea is not complete without a bamboo whisk. The main use of tea whisks is to mix the powdered tea with hot water. Whisks are usually carved from a single piece of bamboo. The only con about this product is you need to dry it after each use.
A lot of people out there including myself have been using a metal whisk for matcha tea. However, the experience of using the ETGtek bamboo whisk has been great. It works wonders in dissolving the fine matcha powder. It contributes to a different aesthetic experience of matcha tea drinking.
The following is a great technique in whisking matcha green tea with this bamboo chasen. Take the whisk in one hand and hold the rim of the matcha bowl with your other hand. Use a slower kneading action from left to right, up and down, and a gentle 360 degree rotating action to produce a thick consistency. The matcha tea whisked this way should be reasonably thick, smooth and without froth.
