Rikyu Chasen – Matcha Whisk
A beautiful dark bamboo chasen (matcha whisk ) for making ceremonial matcha.
Having a bamboo whisk allows you to froth up a bowl of matcha tea, breaking apart any clumps.
The Rikyu Chasen 利休茶筅 is named after the famous tea ceremony master Sen no Rikyu. The bamboo has a dark colour that is achieved by charring the bamboo during the making process.
The number represents the approximate number of prongs on the whisk. The idea is that the more prongs, the more froth or foam the whisk will produce.
This is not however an indication of better quality matcha as some schools of chado frown upon froth. The largest school of tea ceremony, Urasenke, teaches that an even level of foam is desirable, because of this it has become standard among non-practitioners.
