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.
Sophisticated in design, this Chasago or Cha Ze 茶则 pewter tea scoop is a traditional accompaniment to the Chinese tea ceremony. Its simple silver hues beautifully highlight the vibrant tea leaves, while the Ajiro (Woven Bamboo) detail offers a subtle yet characterful touch. Its refined aesthetic and pleasing weight in the hand encourages precise measurements and an effortless transfer of tea into the teapot thanks to the conveniently included tea pick.
