Product information

This natural bamboo tea scoop, known as chashaku in Japanese, is an essential utensil in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Crafted delicately from bamboo, it serves the purpose of measuring out a perfect serving of powdered matcha, or powdered green tea. While chashaku can be carved from various materials, bamboo is the most common choice, prized for its smooth texture and gentle bend.

Beyond its practical function, chashaku is also admired for its aesthetic appeal. Some are even given poetic names, known as gomei, which imbue them with a seasonal identity. In the realm of Japanese tea ceremony, utensils like chashaku are considered seasonal, with some reserved for special occasions that occur only once a year.

For the ideal matcha experience, it's recommended to use two scoops of matcha tea for every 2 ounces of water, equivalent to about 2 grams. The scoop should be rounded, filling just to the point where the chashaku begins to bend.

Pair this chashaku with a Bamboo Whisk, and Matcha Powder for a complete matcha preparation ritual.
