The material and shape of bamboo chashaku can vary greatly. This item is designed for normal, daily use. Although it is possible to use a normal teaspoon instead, a chashaku is more convenient when serving matcha because it makes adjusting the amount of powder easier. To make usucha (weak tea), use the chashaku to scoop out one and a half heaping spoonfuls of matcha powder (about 2 g).
- Use a soft cloth or tissue when cleaning matcha off the chashaku.
It is definitely useful for preparing matcha! I recommend to use bamboo scoop instead of just regular tea spoon !
Perfect for scooping matcha out of the bag! I also use it to press the clumped tea through the strainer.
Good quality, doesn't splinter, washes up nicely.
Awesome Buy!! Great way to measure every scoop. & great price
