You can tell the difference!

Handcrafted Japanese Nara Takayama Chashaku using locally sourced bamboo, made for Ocha & Co. by 3rd generation master craftsman Tanimura Yasaburo. These bamboo matcha scoops are made with the same quality Kyoto bamboo as his signed chashaku but at a fraction of the cost. The bamboo from the region is regarded as the best quality in Japan due to the cold snowy winters found in the region. The bamboo is cut in early winter and left to dry naturally before being ready to use. Naturally dried and cured bamboo still has the original colour of the bamboo while lower quality scoops invariably has been chemically bleached to speed up ther process.

Simple, elegant and practical

Part of the charm of matcha is the process of making it. That means the scoop and the whisk are just as important as the matcha powder itself! This scoop is constructed from sturdy and high quality bamboo. It's both larger and easier to use than I would have thought, as it scoops quite high for a decent serving and the powder doesn't spill while I'm moving between the matcha container and my teacup.

Just as I expected

Very utilitarian. Nice quality.
