Matcha demands the proper tools. The holy trinity of Chanoyu is the Chawan ( tea bowl), the Chasen ( tea whisk) and our personal favourite the Chashaku (tea scoop).
There are mass-produced bamboo Chashaku churned out by China with no soul and then there are legitimate craft pieces.
EVERY PIECE IS INDIVIDUAL and dictated by mother nature. The wood is foraged from fallen timber only, not a single tree has been harvested or damaged in the creative process. HAND CARVED BY AN CRAFTSMAN WHO PREFERS TO MAINTAIN THE ZEN TRADITION OF anonymity ( click here if you would like to learn more about this).
Each Chashaku is given its own poetic name, and this along with the wood material and exact origin of each piece is presented together in a handmade Paulownia wooden box.
our CHASUKU ARE RATED ACCORDING TO YOUR SKILL LEVEL AND APPETITE FOR RISK.
These expert-level tools are the Double Black Diamond territory of the tea world. They often exhibit wild forms and weighting and are best suited to tea aficionados looking for a jaw-dropping piece of art.
As each piece is entirely unique and handmade, after making your purchase we will contact you with the available Chatsubo in your skill range.
