Bamboo is a highly versatile, renewable, and natural material that has long been appreciated in Asia. In fact, it is the perfect material with which to make the implements associated with Japanese tea: the tea whisk (chasen), the tea scoop (chashaku), and the water ladle (hishaku).

The Tanimura family of Nara, Japan has been making tea whisks for 20 generations over 500 years and Entoten is thrilled to bring you these stunning chashaku from Tanimura Tango’s home studio in Nara, Japan. They are made with the accumulated knowledge of the material, bamboo, by the remarkable Tanimura lineage.
