Petal Tea Scoop (Comma)
The Petal Tea Scoop (Comma) is part of a family of wooden tea scoops designed as alternatives to a spoon for tea-leaves while preparing tea. Petal fits comfortably within the contours of the hand, its presence adding a mindful moment to the daily ritual of tea making. It may also be used for spices.
Petal Tea Scoops are part of a series of objects developed in a design workshop with skilled wooden cutlery makers from Udayagiri, Andhra Pradesh. This craft-form is geographically indexed (GI tagged) and almost entirely practised by women artisans of a local community. The wood used is from deciduous trees that grow on hillslopes nearby.
