Chasen Hyappondate Kubo Tetsuzo

Bamboo tea whisk from Nara • 81–95 string chasen

Chasen Hyappondate Kubo Tetsuzo Chasen Hyappondate Kubo Tetsuzo Chasen Hyappondate Kubo Tetsuzo

Hand-crafted by Kubo Tetsuzo.
Use for making Usucha (thin tea).

Chasen has a history dating back to the Muromachi era, when the son of Lord Takayama was asked by Murata Jukou, the original creator of Japanese tea ceremony, to create it specially. Until modern times the esteemed craftsmanship behind chasen was regarded as a Takayama family secret, an ancient technology deserving of careful transmission across the generations. Today the tradition of high-quality chasen is still alive through the dedicated hands of Japanese craftspeople.

Dip half of the hosaki (the string of the chasen) into warm water to lend its bamboo bristles both softness and toughness; be sure not to get the entire hosaki wet. To help the chasen last longer, wash with clean warm water and dry naturally after use. Buying authentic chasen from Japan is highly recommended because Japanese bamboo tends to be tougher than other varieties, and snippets of the hosaki are less likely to come off in the tea. Chasen is meant to be disposable; please discard and buy another after repeated use.

Handling precautions

INITIATION:
Before first use, let it sit in hot water for a few minutes.
Let it soak in warm water before every use to protect the strings from breaking.

HOW TO WHISK MATCHA:
- Place the tea bowl on a non-slippery surface, and hold it on the side with your left hand (if right-handed).
- Hold the chasen close to the end of the handle. Your thumb should be aligned with the knot on it.
- Start moving the chasen in a "W" pattern, up and down, speeding up as much as possible, until it is foamy enough.
- To create great foam the temperature of the water is crucial: about 85 °C (185 °F) is the best.
- Attention! When whisking, always whisk close to the surface, make sure you do not rub the chasen to the bottom of the bowl, because that might damage the tips of the strings.
- While whisking, keep your body relaxed, moving only your wrists.
- Finish the whisking with a clockwise spiral motion from the middle of the bowl to the sides. This motion is practical (gives the foam a beautiful finish) as well as symbolic (it is the image of infinity).

CLEANING:
Rinse it carefully under running water. If needed, gently remove the remaining matcha stuck on the whisk. Do not soak the whisk in water.
Do not use dishwasher, dryer or dish soap!

STORAGE:
Store it in a place with good ventilation and humidity not lower than 50%, preferably on a Kusenaoshi (whisk stand). If you don’t have a stand, keep it looking upwards. This way the strings might “close up”, straighten out, but that can be fixed. Make it wet under running water and gently unfold the strings with your fingers. Never do this with a dry whisk as it would break.
Bamboo is a sensitive material. If the whisk is stored away in a too warm and dry place, it might crack.

LIFESPAN:
The lifespan of a chasen depends on how it is handled and how frequently it is used. As soon as the tips of the strings start to break off, we recommend purchasing a new one.
