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 brewing instructions are based on tablespoons to measure tea leaves. We recommend you check the capacity before using Sami.
YAMA ZAKURA means mountain cherry blossom in Japanese. The surface of this Tea Scoop is covered with mountain cherry bark, which is polished to make a smooth texture. This style using bark of a cherry tree is one of the Japanese traditional crafts.
