                        Koicha 48 Prong Tea Whisk

                        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 bamboo tea whisk suppler (view detailed images) - Our whisks are made by the Kubo family located near Nara Japan. You can see them in action on this well made YouTube video making whisks here:

                        Differences between Japanese and Chinese tea whisks... The vast majority of tea whisks encountered on the market are copies made in China, not Japan. There is almost no market for matcha 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  tends 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, no fungicides are used when producing Nara tea whisks. A real Japanese whisk will cost 2 or 3 times more than a Chinese whisk, naturally. It certainly is possible to make matcha with a Chinese made whisk but for long term reliability, we recommend that you invest in the real deal.

                                                  Chinese Made Tea Whisk For Matcha

                                                  Introducing A Chinese Made Tea Whisk for Matcha

                                                  Due to the growing popularity of matcha, our current Japanese whisk supplier is having a somewhat difficult time to keep up with the high demand, resulting in a several-month backlog of orders. To ensure you can still enjoy your matcha without interruption, we are now offering a Chinese made tea whisk as a cost-effective alternative.

                                                  Quality and Craftsmanship

                                                  Our Chinese made tea whisk closely resembles its Japanese counterpart in appearance and functionality. While it may not match the superior craftsmanship and long-term durability of a Japanese made whisk, it is still more than sufficient for basic matcha preparation. This whisk is designed with the same traditional style and consists of 65-72 prongs, making it an excellent choice for everyday matcha drinking.

                                                  Affordable and Accessible

                                                  Understanding the need for an affordable option without compromising too much on quality, we have sourced this Chinese whisk to offer you a practical solution. It is priced lower than the Japanese whisk, making it accessible for those who are new to matcha or on a budget. Despite the differences in quality, this whisk will still help you achieve a smooth and frothy matcha.

                                                  Why Choose Our Chinese Whisk?

                                                  • Appearance: Similar look and feel to a Japanese whisk.
                                                  • Functionality: Effective for basic matcha making.
                                                  • Affordability: Lower price point compared to Japanese whisks.
                                                  • Availability: Immediate availability to meet current demand.

                                                  While our Chinese made tea whisk may not offer the same level of precision and longevity as our Japanese whisks, it remains a practical and sufficient tool for matcha enthusiasts. Choose this whisk for its accessibility and convenience, ensuring you never miss out on your daily matcha ritual.

                                                      Japanese Made Tea Whisk For Matcha

                                                      Handmade Quality from Nara, Japan

                                                      Our Japanese made tea whisk for matcha, consisting of 65-72 prongs, is meticulously handcrafted in Nara, Japan. Unlike the common imports from China, our whisks are authentic and made with traditional techniques passed down through generations. There are over 120 different types of Nara tea whisks, each varying in material, shape, and number of splines. These variations depend on the tea school, the type of matcha (thick or thin) being prepared, and other factors. We selected this particular chasen for its versatility and suitability for general-purpose matcha drinking.

                                                      Meet Our Bamboo Tea Whisk Supplier

                                                      Our bamboo tea whisks are crafted by the renowned Kubo family near Nara, Japan. You can watch them in action in this detailed YouTube video, showcasing the intricate process of making these exquisite whisks. View detailed images and video here.

                                                      Japanese vs. Chinese Tea Whisks

                                                      Most tea whisks available on the market are Chinese-made imitations, not authentic Japanese products. China produces these whisks primarily for export, including to Japan itself. The craftsmanship of Japanese whisks starts with a sharp knife to precisely chip the end of the bamboo, resulting in a clean, sharp break. In contrast, Chinese whisks are often made with a file, leading to shorter-lasting prong tips.

                                                      The bamboo used in Japanese tea whisks is of superior quality, dried for over a year without fungicides, ensuring durability and safety. While a genuine Japanese made tea whisk for matcha may cost two to three times more than its Chinese counterpart, it offers unmatched long-term reliability and performance. Investing in an authentic Nara tea whisk ensures you get the best experience and longevity from your matcha preparation.

                                                      Choose a real Japanese made tea whisk for matcha from Nara and elevate your matcha drinking experience with the finest craftsmanship and materials.
