The chasen is made from a single piece of black bamboo and carved into shape by specially trained craftsman. Each whisk will differ due to the natural pattern of the bamboo. For one cup, add 1 measured scoop of matcha to a bowl add 100ml of water at 70 - 80ºC (not boiling water), and whisk using the bamboo whisk, until frothy.
Materials: Sustainable purple bamboo. Sizing (approx): 4 cm W x 15 cm HBefore Use: Soak the bamboo matcha whisk in warm water to open up the delicate prongs. Care: Hand wash only with warm water and leave to dry. Not suitable for the dishwasher. Please note: As bamboo is a natural material, be careful not to use too much force when whisking matcha or else the strands will bend or break. Due to the natural material of bamboo, over time, the prongs will gently open up and start to straighten to the original shape of the bamboo.

(Not boiling)Step 3: Pour a small amount of 80°C water into the bowl (around 50ml).Step 4: Then using your matcha whisk (chasen), begin whisking in a "W" or "M" motion, until smooth and frothy. Step 5: Gently pour from your matcha bowl into your mug or glass and top up with more 80°C water or hot frothed milk (or plant based milk) for a matcha latte. TIP: Barista oat milk pairs well with matcha and also creates a velvety smooth matcha latte!
