For something as specialized as matcha, it is crucial to have the right tools. The chasen (tea whisk) is one of the main components necessary to create delicious matcha. An 80-tine chasen is the most common type, since it makes matcha that has just the right viscosity – not too thick, not too thin.

Although matcha is a longstanding tradition in Japan, chasen-making has become more and more rare. The following video shows the detailed process of creating the curled tines and desired shape of the chasen.
