DescriptionGolden bamboo has been carefully sculpted into an elegant curve for this chashaku (tea scoop) signifying the attention of the craftsman as the bamboo is heated, bent and then carved into this essential matcha utensil.
Used to scoop and measure matcha, it takes great skill to create the chashaku. The attention-to-detail and time spent by the craftsman can be noted through the elegant curve of the utensil. A slip of bamboo is heated, bent and then carefully carved. The greater the curve, the higher the required skill level of the craftsman.
