KUROCHIKU Chasen (Bamboo Whisk)


Author Alexander Ulyanov   (Russian Federation)
Review For those who wonder if they really need a chasen to whisk matcha, and doubt that it really has any bearing on the taste: leaving aside that whisking with a chasen changes the experience of having matcha per se, chasen also makes it tastier. If you mix matcha powder in a cup of water with a spoon, or fork, or some random stick, it would be just a solution of tea powder in water (think of Fervex or similar products for a simile). But when you whisk it with a chasen, the solution is aerated (maybe somehow similar to milk for latte coffee), and the air makes its taste both deeper and more mellow. It also feels a bit different in your mouth.

Matcha prepared without a chasen is still delicious and not less healthy, but if you liked the tea and feel like taking it more often than occasionally, I think getting a chasen would worth it.

This chasen is nicely made, solidly packaged and seems to be crafted without chemicals (just smell it when you take it out of the box).
Very bad...Bad...Very bad...Ordinary...Good... 5 of 5 Stars!
