MEGUMI MATCHA 1st Anniversay chasen
This pretty MEGUMI MATCHA green color 'chasen' (茶筅) is from Suikaen (翠華園) - the atelier of master bamboo whisk craftsman Yasuburo Tanimura in Takayama Nara, Japan. Suikaen has history of more than 530 years with the traditional process and an inherited technique of Chasen making - purely natural and chemical free. In Japan, there are roughly 17 chasen masters remaining, who are carrying on their families' tradition. Mr. Yasuburo Tanimura is one of them, 25th generation and head of Suikaen since 1970. This chasen is completely hand-made by Mr. Yasuburo Tanimura with using hand harvested bamboo that is seasoned for three years before being selected to become a handmade whisk.
