Handmade by Rito Aoshima in the Shitoro-Yaki pottery style, this 400ml Katakuchi Chawan is perfect for making matcha the traditional way and moving it into smaller cups. When using a traditional chawan, the tea does not pour easily. Katakuchi Chawan lets you whisk your matcha and then cleanly pour it into other containers. It's excellent for sharing matcha with guests.
A deep and wide, 355ml chawan provides enough room for the chasen to effortlessly move back and forth to produce froth and dissolve the matcha powder. Its robust shape sits nicely in both hands. The sea foam-green lacquer with white accents summons images of ocean waves lightly passing over a sandy shore.
To indulge in proper matcha drinking, we recommend this Japanese matcha set which includes: Chashaku, a bamboo scoop used to measure matcha for serving; Chasen, bamboo whisk to properly mix matcha with water; And Chawan, the bowl in which to prepare matcha and to drink it from.
