    Much better than my previous Matcha whisk I bought from Amazon years ago. Makes the tea foam very nice and is very sturdy.

    I bought this because if you use a metal whisk, you will scratch up the bottom of your tea bowl. Using a bamboo whisk also means you will not make the unpleasant noise you get using a metal whisk vigorously on a little tea bowl. For me that is reason enough. In terms of taste, I don't find there is a real advantage to using bamboo over metal. Remember to let your whisk air dry, or it will develop mould (this happened to me 5 years ago when I first bought one and thought it would be best to store it in the plastic container it came in). I finally let myself buy another one :P

    I bought one of the Nara tea whisks for myself over two years ago, and just recently bought another as a gift. I have been extremely happy with the quality and durability of the whisk - simply rinsing under water and drying after each use has kept it in excellent condition. It rapidly produces a fine froth without much effort, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another if my current required replacement.

    At first, I thought that I could just use my regular metal whisk to mix the powder into the water. This seemed to work okay. but always left some powder residue at the bottom of the chawan. I decided to take the plunge and purchased this Japanese bamboo whisk and it DOES make a difference. No more residue and a smoother matcha. Sits nicely to dry on the holder and it helps to maintain its shape. A great purchase!

    Beautifully crafted, high quality item. I debated between getting this and an electric whisk, and I'm very happy I chose this.

    A quality instrument for sure, and essential for mixing your matcha, but I can't help but feel the quality has slipped just the tiniest bit from when I purchased the same item a few years ago. Something about the tines, or the wood used, I can't quite put my finger on it. Still eminently serviceable and replaced the aformentioned older whisk just fine.

    Can't do without this item; it's ESSENTIAL for making a smooth, well-distributed. While I had some misunderstandings on how to use the product at first (prongs come curled but will straighten out after first whisking) it works beautifully. If you buy nothing else besides tea, consider this whisk and it's holder. Also beautifully crafted and I appreciate it's fine, delicate workmanship.

    Very beautiful piece. I just rinse it under water when done, put it on the holder, and done. I did buy the ceramic holder, figuring it worth the small investment. It matches my bowl nicely too. Nicely made and packaged well.

    I am finding that this whisk is definitely preferable to the metal type that I used while awaiting my purchase from O-cha in that I can make a much frothier matcha.
