This 48 prong matcha whisk is handmade in Japan especially for thick style koicha matcha. Not to be confused with imports from China, this authentic hand-made tea whisk is made in Nara Prefecture. There are over 120 different types of Nara tea whisks, with the type of material, shape and number of splines varying according to the school of tea, and also on the kind of matcha to be used.

Note: This while you could use this whisk for other types of matcha, it was designed for use with thick "koicha" matcha. For general matcha brewing, we recommend this tea whisk instead.

About our Tea whisk suppler (see photos) - Sabun Kubo was born in 1940 and started making tea whisks in 1964. He is an artisan very keen on protecting traditional crafts.

works well for koicha matcha. Rinses easily after and produces a smooth matcha with good froth

I rarely drink thin matcha, but have always used a 'regular' chasen. So, I figured I'd try this one. It really makes the koicha much frothier and more consistent without nearly as much whisking. I'm really glad I bought it.

Advantages: Makes koicha easier

This chasen (made in Japan) is designed for koicha (thick tea). I have been using for now 9 months and it is still in perfect condition and hasn't lost its shape.
You can brew koicha without such a specific chasen, but it is easier with it.
