First, this post from an eggcorn thread:
Could she have been saying tasting spoon?
Maybe it was even less than a taste; it was just a tease.
When the pot’s calling the kettle black, it’s often encouraged by the teasepoon.

“Tastespoon” seems a bit distant, phonetically. But it’s always dangerous to circumscribe inventivity.
Went looking for some other examples of “tastespoon” and discovered something new. People call those little wooden spoons that vendors give out with samples of edibles “tastespoons.”
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
