This highly unique Chasen is a Chabako or Nodate size. Smaller than a regular Chasen, it is designed for use outdoors in a tea box (Chabako) tea set.
It is sculpted from rare black Hachiku bamboo that has been seasoned for around 3 years, and features coloured string which is rare for this type of Chasen.
It was hand made by 20th generation Master Bamboo Whisk Craftsman Tango Tanimura. His family’s history of crafting Chasen even predates the famous Sen no-Rikyu, renowned as father of the three major Japanese tea schools.
This beautiful implement is designed for those practicing Nodate style of tea ceremony, or anyone who wants a unique Chasen with which to prepare their matcha tea.
