DescriptionThe style of tea whisk and the type of bamboo used varies from school to school. Those used in the Mushanokōji tea school are often made of black bamboo, with straight prongs, as opposed to curled prongs used in other schools. The Mushanokōji sytle inherits the earlier style of tea whisk that was used in the time of Sen no Rikyū (1522-1591).
