This handmade chasaji (tea scoop) is made exclusively for Yunomi.life. 

Yamagata Prefecture, where the artist Naoyuki Ashino is based, is a famous cherry production region. The most widely known kind is the Sato Nishiki cherry, having a well balanced sweetness and acidity.

Using the cherry tree of Yamagata, Naoyuki hand-carved and shaped the chasaji one by one. Slight difference in the color, grain of wood, and shape is the result of handmade quality. Such quality is what Naoyuki treasures the most in his works, the heartwarming, humane aspect that can only be expressed in handmade products.

1 scoop: about 3 grams (0.1 oz) of tea leaves (serves 1 person)
