Hand-carved Kenyan Tea Spoon
Simplify your loose leaf preparation with these spoons, just scoop out 1 teaspoon of tea, per one cup of hot water, and enjoy! Perfect for your own kitchen or as a gift for your loved ones, each spoon is crafted from sustainably-sourced olive wood. 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.

Tired of the tasteless tea bags and wanted a change. I loved the gift box with the handmade spoon and the wonderful diffuser and the packaging of the purple tea, Trio! The shock to my tastebuds are a wonderfulness a flavor, and has helped with my craving for sweets I found the purple tea so delightful that I ordered more purple rain, and I also ordered the Kenya black trio it is now my new go to gift for my loved ones it would be selfish not to share such wonderful taste. Thank you, JusTea for brightening my world
