Smacha’s premium bamboo tea utensil set is very useful in the preparation of all types of loose-leaf teas. The attractive bamboo scoop is used to measure dry leaves into a brewing vessel, and can also be used as a presentation vessel to show off the dry leaves before brewing. The bamboo tongs are useful in the Gong Fu style tea presentation, for grasping and cleaning tasting cups, and for general use with your tea service. The tea needle is used primarily to clear the spout of Yixing teapots, while the broad-ended scraping device is useful to clean out the spent leaves from the inside of your tea pot or gaiwan. All of these tools are carefully designed, well made, with a balanced feel, and essential to Gong Fu style tea presentation.
