Japanese matcha bowls: As one of the central elements of any Japanese tea ceremony, clay tea bowls have always had a special place in the Japanese culture of Chado (also Sado: way of tea). In addition to tea caddies, matcha bowls were also given away as highly valued subjects in the time of the shoguns. Unique items from Japanese master potters bring in more than a thousand euros today. In Japanese, matcha bowls are called chawan or matchawan. Chawan simply means tea bowl.
In addition to individual pieces, we also offer matcha bowl sets, which usually contain a matcha beater and a matcha spoon in addition to the actual tea bowl.
Matcha bowls from Japan are generally not dishwasher safe, but should be washed in warm water without detergent and wiped dry once you have drank the tea.
