DescriptionA tea scoop made by a tea master’s own hands conveys its maker’s personality and tastes. The third-generation grandmaster of the Sen family, Sen no Sōtan (1578 - 1658) continued the rustic and simple style of chanoyu established by his grandfather, Sen no Rikyū (1522 – 1591). Sōtan’s three sons established three tea schools in the mid-17th century, which thrive to the present day.
