There are three tools considered essential when dealing with matcha. Those are the chawan (tea bowl), chasen (tea whisk), and the chashaku.
The chashaku is specifically designed to reach the matcha powder, which is often stored in canisters and small lacquered boxes (chaki). A normal tea spoon is simply not designed to reach it and scoop the right amount.
Chashaku means "tea scoop" in Japanese. It is the scoop you need for measuring out matcha efficiently. One chashaku scoopful of matcha equates to roughly a third of a teaspoon of matcha powder. Two scoopfuls of powder equate to a standard amount for usucha style brewing (1/2 teaspoon).
It is made from our high-quality, long-lasting and anti-bacterial bamboo.
