Matcha Whisk (Chasen)
Matcha is green tea in powder form, therefore, you can not steep it like any other tea. A traditional bamboo whisk will give you the smoothest bowl of matcha
A whisk with 60 prongs or less is only suited for making the thicker style of matcha tea known as Koicha, while a whisk with 100 prongs is only suitable for the regular thin style matcha tea known as Usucha. A whisk with 80 prongs is capable for preparing both styles with exceptional results.
