Description

Description | 詳細

With their carefully balanced shapes and weighing in at only 3 grams, Chikumeidōs chashaku matcha tea scoops are always ultra-light and graceful to hold in your hand. Comes in a small cardboard box decorated with Japanese washi paper.

The susudake bamboo originates from kitchens and cealings above hearths in traditional Japanese homes, where exposure to smoke slowly hardens and deepens the color of the bamboo – a gradual process often lasting for more than a 100 years before being ready to carve into tea utensils. As the number of traditional style houses in Japan are decreasing, susudake bamboo is becoming increasingly rare as well.

Chikumeidō is a traditional family-run bamboo workshop that has been creating bamboo utensils for the Japanese tea ceremony for more than 500 years. Today, Chikumeidō is led by Kubo Sabun, a twenty-fourth generation master craftsman.
