A tea whisk, or chasen, made by Tanimura Tango is truly a small work of art. His family has been making them for 20 generations over 500 years.

While seemingly simple utensils, the production of chasen is a meticulous and time-consuming process that begins with harvesting and seasoning the bamboo over the course of three years. In addition, there are approximately 100 variations of chasen to produce in order to meet the needs of exacting customers.
