This susudake (煤竹) smoked bamboo chashaku (matcha scoop) is an indispensible tool for making matcha. Made in the classic nakabushi style (middle node style), this chashaku is perfect for measuring out the desired about of matcha ans is perfect for all tea settings. Made by Suikaen.

This chashake is made from Susudake bamboo that was previously used in a traditional Japanese house's hearth, where it was exposed to smoke and soot, staining it a beautiful deep brown over the course of decades and sometimes centuries. As such, each piece of susudake is unique, and with traditional Japanese houses on the decline, susudake is becoming increasingly rare.

Suikaen is headed by Yasaburo Tanimura (谷村弥三郎), a 25th generation chasen maker who has carried on his family's 500 year old tradition and is one of the only 18 remaining chasen masters. These chashaku are made from locally grown bamboo in the small village of Takayama (高山) in northwest Nara prefecture.
