This chasen (bamboo matcha tea whisk) is a great product; you will need this to make matcha green tea/ latte in order to make your matcha frothy and creamy.
A brand new chasen will have a core that is twisted around (looks like a small flower bud), and tines that curl up at the end. However, after a few uses, the tines will straighten out, and the core will bloom, this needs to be cleaned it after each use. Make sure it isn’t in contact with moisture for long periods of time. The bamboo can easily grow mold on it so be careful. Finally, be sure to inspect your chasen before each use for broken tines. More for your own safety, remove any broken parts before whisking, as accidentally drinking a piece of bamboo will not be a pleasant experience.
Overall for the price, this is a great buy for this set & great addition to your kitchen if you want to make matcha green tea the traditional way.
