This dark brown bamboo Chasen is used by tea teachers as well as tea masters for the preparation of Matcha. This chasen is designed for the preparation of the Usucha as well as the Koicha. With 80 bamboo links, this broom is the most commonly used chase for matcha preparation. A noble Matcha broom made from high quality bamboo and carefully checked in Japan.
Made in Japan
The chasen is, as many people know, one of the most important tools of the utensils for the Japanese tea ceremony. A whisk made of bamboo to stir or whisk the Matcha tea in the Matcha bowl. The chase measures about 10 cm, the shape and the bamboo used can vary significantly depending on the tea school or the type of tea ceremony. The Urasenke school prefers bamboo brooms made from shiratake, while the Omotesenke school uses chasen made from smoked bamboo.
Usually the chase consists of 80 bristles, but some of 70 or more than 100. The taste of the matcha should also be influenced by the different number of bristles or the bamboo used. While the usual utensils of the tea ceremony can be real treasures or antiques, chasing is spoken of as a consumable. Almost wrongly, as I think, since the hand-carved works of art are basically responsible for the preparation of a fine matcha. One should face the chasen with a feeling of gratitude, as well as his own matcha bowl, for his important role.
