Chashaku - Bamboo tea spoon for matcha
Bamboo scoop. The chashaku is traditionally used to measure matcha for serving and is an integral part of the Japanese tea ceremony. One moderate scoop of matcha is roughly 1/2 of a gram. Generally, two scoops are used for one serving (1g) of the ceremony.
- Never get the chashaku wet (may result in matcha getting soaked into the pores of the bamboo, and it will never come out)
- Wipe with a dry cloth after use
