Enjoy a loving spoonful with these beautiful hand-carved heart tea spoons from Kenya! Perfect for your own kitchen or as a gift for your loved ones, each spoon is crafted from sustainably-sourced olive wood.

Simplify your loose leaf preparation with these spoons, just scoop out 1 teaspoon of tea, per one cup of hot water, and enjoy! Our stainless steel Tea Infuser is the perfect partner for these tea scoops.

Hand-carved in Kenya, these spoons provide fair wages for approximately 200 carvers and sanders. Carving in Kenya is mostly a seasonal job because the demand is driven by tourism, so in the off-season there is a reduced need for workers. But our spoons are made year-round, creating sustainable employment for the carvers. 90% of the price JusTea pays for the spoons goes directly to the artisans, with the remaining 10% going to supplies and transport. These spoon carvers earn about 2-3 times the minimum wage in Kenya.

All of the spoons are made from off-cuts of olive wood from larger items like bowls and tourist gifts (think carved giraffes). By turning these off-cuts into spoons the carvers reduce their waste and create for themselves additional income. Climate change looks a lot different in Kenya than it does in North America, the effects of which underscore the importance of increasing forest cover around the country. Our partnership together has committed to planting 3 trees for every 1 tree that is cut down to ensure forests are being replanted.

Since each spoon is hand-carved, the bowl size may vary slightly but it is approximately 1 teaspoon.

Hand carved Kenyan Tea spoons

I adore these . A perfect size for making a perfect cup of tea, and they are lovely to hold and touch . But I don’t stir the hot tea with them I simply keep them in my tea to canisters to scoop out the tea.

Adorable But Handy!

These little spoons are adorable, but are perfect if you want to be more precise with how much tea leaves you are using/adding or as a gift to a tea loving friend/family member. I regret not buying a few extra just because they are super handy to have and each one is unique due to them being handmade.
