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.

Great tea and good service. Also loved the hand carved heart shaped spoon and found the tote bag to be of superior quality. Thanks, JusTea.

Nice tea accessory

The spoon is lovely and makes a great addition to a tea lover’s gift box.

Very Pretty heart spoon

I love the little wooden hand-carved heart tea spoon. I will be sending it to a friend who particularly likes heart shapes, along with the ginger turmeric tea, to encourage her during her cancer treatment.

Nice little spoon for scooping tea. When heaping mine was just under 1 tsp. I love it.
