CHASEN Tango Tanimura "Shin" 70 Prongs - Zen Wonders Tea

CHASEN Tango Tanimura "Shin" 70 Prongs

Made in Japan

Regular price $85.00 $85.00 Sale

Handmade in the village of Takayama, Nara, Tango Tanimura's Chasen carry on an intricate 500-year-old family tradition of master craftsmen.

As the 20th-generation successor of his Chasen-making family line, Tango Tanimura handcrafts his whisks with a strong focus on its user, aiming to strike a perfect balance of flexibility (achieved by carving very thin prongs) and durability, given by selecting sturdy high-quality bamboo.

His Chasen are used by the grandmasters of 2 of the 3 most famous family tea schools in Japan, Urasenke and Mushanokojisenke.

Each whisk is made from a single piece of white bamboo harvested in the Kansai region and seasoned for 3 years, meticulously hand-crafted and split into 140 pieces to make a whisk with 70 prongs.

Care and storage notes:

  • Soak whisk's prongs in cold water for 2 minutes before its first use.
  • Rinse the whisk after each use and carefully pat dry before storing it away.
  • For better preservation of the prongs' quality, we recommend storing it on our whisk holder in order to keep its wide shape.
*Additional 10% GST tax applies to this product on purchases within Australia. Overseas purchases are GST-free.
