Note: Packages for most tea products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions where stated, click here to see info and photos).

The 72-prong kazuho is the standard for tea ceremony practitioners.

This chasen comes from master craftsman Tango Tanimura's Wahokudo Studio in Takayama, Nara, Japan.

WHISK GUIDE

The "Number" represents the approximate but not exact number of prongs, and the more prongs, the more froth or foam it produces. However, this is not an indication of better quality as some schools of tea ceremony frown upon froth. The biggest school of tea ceremony, Urasenke, teaches that an even level of froth is desirable, and so this has become standard among non-practitioners.
