Consisting of 65-72 prongs, this whisk should not to be confused with imports from China. Made to produce a good head of froth on matcha, we picked this nice chasen for general purpose matcha drinking. 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 tea, whether it is weak or strong, to be served in very formal surroundings or at an open air tea ceremony, or if the whisk is for a travelling set.

About our bamboo tea whisk suppler (view detailed images) - Sabun Kubo Born 1940 and started making tea whisks in 1964. He is an artisan very keen on protecting traditional crafts.

Differences between Japanese and Chinese tea whisks... The vast majority of tea whisks seen on the market are made in China, not Japan. There is no market for whisks within China itself, nearly all are exported abroad and surprisingly, even to Japan. Japanese craftsmen start the whisk making process using a sharp knife to chip the end of the bamboo, giving it a clean sharp break, whereas in China it's tend to be done with a file. Because of this, the tip of the whisk prongs of Japanese whisks are known to last longer. The bamboo used in Japanese whisks is superior and is dried for well over a year before use.

This is my first tea whisk ever and so far I am very satisfied, it is a high quality hand-made product. It comes with a sturdy plastic box which is ideal for transporting the tea whisk.

It is softer than China made. A handle is smaller than China so at first it is hard to control but afterward found that it takes less speed and time of making froth. I recommend this than China made.

Advantages: Use less speed and time to make froth than China made.

Disadvantages: Each brush gaps are not equal and so thickness ,too.

I have used it but once so far, and I may update my review after a few months of use, and have been very pleased. You can tell that it is hand made and the craftsmanship is excellent. I love that all of the tines are roughly the same size but some appear thinner or thicker than others give it a nice hand made look. it has a pleasant appearance.
The tea resulting from Nara whisk Vs. Areolatte whisk was much sweeter and "softer."
