Differences between Japanese and Chinese tea whisks...

The vast majority of tea whisks seen on the market are made in China, not Japan. This particular whisk is Chinese made and we offer it as an economical choice for our customers. There is no market for whisks within China itself, nearly all are exported abroad and many, surprisingly, 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. While this whisk will suffice and will last for quite some time, an authentic Japanese whisk should last longer.

This whisk works great! I whisked a bowl of hot water to let it "open up" a bit and let it air out when I first got it. Since then it works great, is sturdy and produces great foam! Along with a bamboo scoop and a chawan of some sort you have all you need to experience matcha in the traditional way and at a reasonable price.

Advantages: Beautiful, Functional and Inexpensive

Having read different opinions regarding whisks made in China and ones made in Japan, it took me a long time to decide whether I should go for the more expensive Japanese-made or less expensive Chinese-made.

I finally decided on this because not having a whisk, I needed one regardless.

Advantages: Great whisk for the price
