This tea scoop is made out of wooden ‘love’. I spend a nice afternoon with Milan, a man who likes to work with wood. He was telling me a story that he was suppose to make scoops for a Slovak traditional crafts contest and once he thought about the main price he lost all his ideas and stoped his work before even started. I asked him while negotiating prices for these pieces and I told him “I do not want to offer you a price that will not make you happy and you won’t make any more tea scoops”. He replied “I will make more because I like making them “. I think there is a lot hidden in his words. His full time job for two decades is creating dental (tooth) stuff while wood gives him relaxing moments, and in these moments amazing ideas would arise.
A birch scoop made of acacia tree root wood. A natural odourless oil applied. This piece is made into a bit thicker and rigid walls than the others very nice, simple piece. The wood with age will slowly change and grow into more beauty.
You see or want the teas because someone else like it, said something interesting about them. Still you don't see the value of such tea but the price. Doubts and worries come. Simply let them go and buy cheaper teas.
why not to talk about how well the body feels after a cup of tea...
I know this clearly, this different feeling as I was taking other similar teapots with cracking glaze into my hands that were not used yet, they were 'sleepy' yet or I would say waiting to be disenchanted like in fairy tales.
