Tea Scoop HYOTAN
length: 4.53in (11.5cm)
Our Tea Scoop is very useful for measuring tea leaves from Chazutsu or other tea container and when placing tea leaves into the Kyusu teapot. It also brings a traditional Japanese atmosphere to tea time. Sami means Tea Scoop in Japanese.
The capacity is 5g or more of tea leaves, which is the same as one tablespoon. We think that the tablespoon is most convenient to measure tea leaves because the capacity is almost the same all around the world. All of our brewing instructions are based on tablespoons to measure tea leaves. We recommend you check the capacity before using Sami.
This is made of wood from the camphor tree, and finished by lacquer coating. HYOTAN, which means calabash (bottle gourd) in Japanese, has been a traditional good luck charm since ancient times in Japan.
