Shin Kazuho Chasen (Black Bamboo) – Tango Tanimura

Artisan - Tango Tanimura


2 reviews

This 70 prong Chasen has been hand made by 20th generation Master Bamboo Whisk Craftsman Tango Tanimura. His family’s history of crafting Chasen even predates the famous Sen no-Rikyu, renowned as father of the three major Japanese tea schools.


Sculpted from rare black Hachiku bamboo that has been seasoned for around 3 years, this beautiful implement is designed for those practicing the Omotesenke style of tea ceremony, or anyone who wants an even and silky foam on the surface of their matcha tea.

    This black bamboo chasen was meticulously carved by Master Tango Tanimura, the 20th Generation craftsman from the line of chasen makers in Japan. The craftsmanship is reflected on how each tine is carved and carefully bent, creating the slopes and curves that make the Shin Kazuho its distinct silhouette. The black bamboo’s color also makes it pleasant to behold and keeps with the spirit of wabi-sabi (the philosophy that there is beauty in simplicity and imperfection).

    Master Tanimura’s work is prized among tea practitioners of both Urasenke and Omotesenke tea schools.

    When you hold one of Master Tanimura’s chasen in your hands, you will know it is no ordinary chasen. It is a work of art!
