Handcarved Lightning Bolt Bamboo "Spoon"
The lightning bolt is an ancient symbol depicting the sudden satori awakening experience. The lotus grows out of mud. As Thich Nhat Hanh puts it, "no mud, no lotus." Through adversity we develop our character and discover our limitations. Also, as the tea trees teach us, our canopy grows proportionate to our roots. Carved from very hard, high-quality bamboo, these spoons or chashaku (with spoon for matcha) are beautiful. Used for shuffling leaves from your scoop into the teapot, cleaning the pot, unblocking the spout and moving leaves around within the teapot during a tea session. This utensil comes in handy more often than one might imagine.Â
