New: Dark Wood Chasen ✨

 

Our beautiful dark wood chasen is made from wild purple bamboo. Artisans look for a hard, thin stalk — usually about 2 to 2.5 centimeters thick, and 9 to 12 cm long. The bamboo must be dried for over a year, and only then do artisans transform the natural material into the fine tines — each by hand.

 

Features: 

• 100 prongs
• handcrafted
• well-proportioned and sturdy

 

Take a #MatchaMoment to master Matcha preparation, and use our chasen to whisk your tea into the perfectly creamy, umami-filled froth. Need a video tutorial? Learn here.

 

 

PS: did you know that upon first use, your chasen will beautifully bloom...? Give it a shot and see for yourself! Plus learn more about how Chasens are made — and how to take care of your own — on our blog

All About Our Organic Genmaicha Tea

Genmaicha is a blend of loose leaf tea, usually bancha, with "genmai." Genmai is commonly brown rice, but our genmaicha is made by roasting white mochi rice, which is crunchier and sweeter than regular rice. The rice provides a satisfyingly sweet, nutty taste, which is balanced by the light green tea. Many say the aroma is reminiscent of popcorn! We say that sounds delicious.
