The chasen is an integral part of Cha No Yu. This is an 80-prong chasen whisk. It is used in a zig-zag motion to dissolve powdered matcha in a bowl with water. Whisk in a chawan or alternative deep bowl for best results.
When not in use, allow drying on a chasen kusenaoshi. This helps support the shape and protects the fine tines from breakage.
Recommended: For best results, soak the prongs in warm water for at least a few minutes before every use to soften the tips.
NOTE: Avoid using detergents when cleaning.
