ASAGAO / Exotic Purple Bamboo Chasen Whisk
TSUBOMI / Bamboo Chasen Whisk Holder
Special Features of TSUBOMI / Chasen Holder
Retains the original shape of Chasen
Prevent your Chasen from losing its original shape or straightening with TSUBOMI. This holder helps retain the structure of the whisk, which is crucial for effective Matcha whisking and creation of that velvety smooth creamy foam layer.
Avoids mold growth on Chasen
After washing your Chasen, it is important for it to be completely dried. Placing it on the TSUBOMI prevents accumulation of water and allows airflow throughout the Chasen, thus preventing mold growth.
Extends the lifespan of Chasen
Storing your Chasen with TSUBOMI prevents the deterioration of the whisk, increasing to two or three times its natural lifespan.
Special Features of ASAGAO / Chasen
Ensures no powder clumps in your Matcha tea / latte
Allows you to whisk your Matcha beverages without leaving any clump residue behind, which would taste bitter and grainy. Something you would never want in your favorite matcha drink.
Forms a delightful creamy layer
Forms a rich mousse-like foam layer and enhances overall texture, which is unachievable with a spoon or metal whisk.
Higher flexibility & durability
Made from exotic purple bamboo, it offers higher flexibility and durability in comparison to other types of Chasen. Ideal for home and commercial use.

- How do I whisk Matcha with a chasen?
When whisking Matcha with a chasen, first, start off with a slow, circular pattern to loosen up any powder stuck on the bottom or sides of the cup. Once the large clumps are mixed in, whisk vigorously in a W-shape motion.
We recommend whisking your Matcha in 50-75 mL of your choice of liquid (water or milk) for easier whisking.
- How long does it take to whisk Matcha using Chasen?
It takes only 10 seconds for the Matcha powder to dissolve. Using ASAGAO / Chasen will ensure a creamy smooth foam on top of your Matcha tea or latte.
- How should I wash the chasen after use?
Wipe the chasen tips gently with soap and rinse under running water with hand after use. Pat dry with towel and leave in open air to dry.
- How do I store the chasen after use?
After washing your chasen, make sure it is completely dry before storing it away. You may store it in a plastic container or ideally on a whisk holder to keep its shape. If it is not kept in a dry area, mold may start to grow.
- How long can the chasen last?
If you prepare Matcha once a day using the chasen, it should last around one year. To prolong the life of your chasen, make sure you follow our tips on how to wash and store your chasen.
- My chasen tips have loosened. Can I still use it?
Yes, you can still use it. After a few uses, the tips will straighten out and bend inwards. This is to be expected. To reshape chasen, dip your finger between outer tips and inner tips, then gently bend the outer tips outwards.
- What is the difference if I use ASAGAO / Chasen instead of YUKIWA / Hand Mixer?
Using ASAGAO / Chasen is the traditional method of whisking tea, whereas using YUKIWA / Matcha Mixer allows you to mix Matcha simply with a press of a button. With the right technique, whisking Matcha with ASAGAO / Chasen will result in finer and creamier texture foam as compared to YUKIWA / Matcha Mixer.
If you love the traditional method of whisking tea in Japanese Tea Ceremony, we definitely recommend you to purchase ASAGAO / Chasen together with SUMIRE / Scoop!
