Composed of 99% tin and 1% silver, Japanese pewter is sublimely suited for the consumption of food and beverages, not only enduringly retaining its radiance, form, and luster but also its complexity - all without the necessity of frequent polishing as with silver.
Exquisitely crafted from pewter, Chasago or Cha Ze 茶则 is an elegant tea scoop designed to enhance the traditional Chinese tea ceremony. Its minimalist silver finish exquisitely highlights the beauty of the tea leaves, while the subtle back pattern adds character when resting inverted. Delicately detailed and delightful to the touch, this scoop enables the effortless transfer of tea into the narrow opening of the teapot with the help of a tea pick.
