They are crafted by Yasaburo Tanimura, one of the very few craftsmen in the only region in Japan, Takayama in Nara prefecture, where traditional hand-crafted bamboo tea whisks are produced.
Being produced in Japan by highly-specialized craftsmen, ensures that this tea whisk is supremely able to serve its purpose.

Customized for The Tea Crane with a blue cord to tie the base of the tines instead of the customary black cord.
According to the preferences of the different schools of tea, each style has different requirements for their tea whisks.
The Enshu school for example makes a distinction between whisks for thick-tea and thin-tea, and requires the knot of the thread holding the tines in place, to be tied on the inside.
