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 3g or more of tea leaves, which is a little more than 1/2 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 brewin g instructions are based on tablespoons to measure tea leaves. We recommend you check the capacity before using Sami.
HYOTAN, which means calabash (bottle gourd) in Japanese, has been a traditional good luck charm since ancient times in Japan.
The surface of this Tea Scoop is covered with cherry tree bark. This style using bark of a cherry tree is one of the Japanese traditional crafts.
