A Chasen is a tool that is used to create matcha tea. In truly remarkable craftmanship, it is made from a single piece of bamboo.
It is a beautiful tool that is very effective at combining water and powder.
Using a chasen to stir matcha tea in a bowl (chawan) is a traditional way to prepare matcha. Still used today, chasens are easy to find across the web.
There are two main sizes that you will encounter: Small and Standard.
The main factor is deciding small vs large size is the size of the matcha bowl (chawan) you are using. You want to have enough room to vigorously use the whisk.
