Sen no Rikyū Chashaku Tea Scoop
made with precious Susutake Takayama bamboo
Unique Piece | Handcrafted in Kyoto, Japan
Sen no Rikyū Chashaku
This is a ceremonial-grade tea scoop. A special Takayama bamboo Chashaku reserved for Chakai and Chaji. Handcrafted in the exact style of Sen no Rikyū Omotesenke/Urasenke I 1522-1591, by a Kyoto's renowned craftsman. Susutake-smoked Takayama bamboo is a premium bamboo grown in the high mountains of Kyoto. It’s dried in the open air and aged under the snow for at least two winters before being selected for making this type of exceptional Chashaku. The countless hours of work a craftsman spent on this rather simple-looking piece is mind-blowing. The final result is a refined and striking piece of art which represents the philosophy of Japanese tea culture at its best.
