Kurotake Matcha Scoop

Regular price $32.00

Sustainably grown kurotake bamboo・Hand-crafted

Crafted of young kurotake bamboo from the forested island of Shikoku, this simple, elegant tea scoop is the accompaniment to our classic chasen. Made by a 25 year veteran of the craft, the thin scoop follows the classic traditions of Takayama tea ware, honed over half a millennia.

Kurotake, or black bamboo, is the preferred style of Sen No Rikyū and the Mushanokojisenke school of tea, which places value on hospitality over elaborate tea preparation. Beautifully presented in a paulownia wooden box.

*Please note that handmade items are inherently unique. The scoop you receive may vary slightly from the picture.

Approximate dimensions: 185mm length・Artist: 平田和寿 Kazuhisa Hirata
