After use wipe off any matcha with a soft, dry cloth. Avoid getting any moisture on the Chashaku as this may cause it to absorb the matcha.
Yoshi En has recently grown out of Sunday Natural to become an independent premium tea store. As part of this transition, some products may still be shipped in Sunday Natural packaging.

Written in the kanji as “tea scoop”, a Chashaku is a narrow, thin teaspoon used to transfer powdered matcha from its container into a Chawan tea bowl. The original Chashaku imported to Japan from China were made of ivory, and have since evolved to be carved from a single piece of bamboo or wood, typically with a nodule around the centre. Traditionally, tea masters would carve their own bamboo Chashaku together with a matching storage tube, and bestow it with a poetic name, known as Mei (銘). Chashaku are sized to measure out just the right amount of matcha: to make regular, thin Usucha tea, use 1.5 to 2 scoops per Chawan. For thick Koicha tea (that is almost exclusively served in a ceremonial setting) as much as 6 scoops may be used.
