As tea-making has become an art form over the centuries, so have matcha bowls themselves become works of art. The organic, undulating shape of traditional matcha bowls is designed to create the smooth, frothy consistency beloved by tea enthusiasts. Because of its essential role in the Japanese tea ceremony, a tea bowl is traditionally considered one of the most graceful and treasured items in your home.

Meaning "lake scenery" in Japanese, the Kokei Matcha Bowl features an alluring azure crackle glaze that we think would look especially beautiful holding your favorite ceremonial matcha.

How to Use:

To prepare matcha, pour boiling water into the tea bowl and allow to cool slightly. Add ceremonial-grade matcha using a bamboo ladle. Using a chasen (bamboo whisk), whisk vigorously in an “M” shape until the matcha reaches a creamy froth. Sip directly from bowl.

For best results, use ceremonial-grade matcha, a bamboo ladle, and 80 or 100-tip chansen.  

Materials: Clay
Care: Owning a matcha bowl requires thoughtful handling and careful use. Because of their handmade quality, these bowls are not suitable for the microwave or dishwasher, and should be rinsed and dried immediately after use. Be careful not to introduce water that is too hot, as that may encourage glaze cracking.
