Made of humble materials, the bamboo tea scoop, or chashaku, is a traditional utensil used for measuring and transferring matcha tea powder from a tin into a tea bowl.
In the practice of formal tea ceremony, tea masters will use the same chashaku for decades and then bequeath them to their apprentices. Thus adding immeasurable value and provenance to a simple bamboo spoon.
Use a damp cloth to wipe down your tea scoop after each use. Do not use soap.
