This traditional bamboo whisk, known as a "chasen", is used in Japanese tea ceremonies to prepare perfectly smooth matcha. No geisha required: just pour almost-boiling water over your powdered tea and whisk until you reach an even consistency. Then drink immediately to experience the deliciously healthy taste of a centuries-old ritual. Or get modern and mix the sweetened tea with frothy steamed milk for a tasty latthé. Kanpai!
