            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.

            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.

                    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.
