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.
• 100 prongs
• well-proportioned and sturdy
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.

I wanted to personally write and let you know that beginning Friday, April 22nd, the price of our Daily Matcha will increase by one dollar, from $20 to $21. This is the first time we have been required to raise the price of tea in our 8.5 year history, and as a thank you for your continued support I wanted to give you a heads up.
