Matcha Bamboo Spoon Chashaku

CHF 8.50

A Chashaku is a specially shaped bamboo spoon for measuring out matcha powder and is part of every traditional Japanese tea ceremony. It is carved from bamboo and patiently bent into its characteristic spoon shape by hand using steam. Unlike a metal spoon, a bamboo chashaku does not become statically charged. This allows the matcha powder to slide almost completely from the spoon into the matcha bowl.

As long as the bamboo spoon does not get wet, it can simply be wiped clean with a clean, dry cloth after use. However, if the chashaku gets wet and dirty, it should be rinsed under clean running water without detergent, wiped with a cotton cloth and then left to air dry. This prevents the matcha powder from sticking to the bamboo spoon.
