For the preparation of the tea itself, the most important utensils for the host are the whisk, chasen (in Japanese), and tea scoop, chashaku (in Japanese).
A chashaku is used to measure the desired amount of matcha powder. This scoop adds functionality and pleasure to the ritual of your tea. In Japan, a chashaku can be used for generations. The most highly prized pieces have their own names and most of them date back to the Edo period.
The manufacturer where our chashaku is from preserves the tradition of 500 years in Nara Prefecture, Japan.
All the products are handmade by skilled craftsmen under the guidance of the master. They have received the patronage of many people for their high quality and reliability, and they continue to have the top track record in the industry. The former master was certified as a traditional craftsman by the Minister of International Trade and Industry and he received the Minister of International Trade and Industry Award. In 2008, they exhibited their work at the Louvre Palace Museum in Paris, France.
