GLASS MATCHA BOWL WITH A SPOUT
Glass matcha bowl is a vessel inspired by a classic matchawan traditionally used to prepare and drink matcha green tea. It has a spout which is exceptional for a matchawan but very useful when pouring prepared matcha into another vessel. It will be useful for those who want to share matcha with their guests. The bowl fits perfectly in hands and thanks to its transparent glass walls you can fully contemplate the color and structure of your matcha during your daily ritual.
The bowl was handcrafted with borosilicate glass. Its tall vertical walls and broad bottom make it easy to whisk the powder smoothly inside and quickly obtain the perfect froth on the surface.
The traditional way to prepare matcha comes from the Japanese Tea Ceremony. It involves using a matcha bowl, a bamboo whisk- chasen and a bamboo spoon- chashaku. Place 2 chashaku spoons of matcha (1,5g) in a matcha bowl and pour 100ml of hot water (80 °C). Chasen in hand, vigorously whisk your matcha from the wrist in m-shaped, not circular, motion. In about 20 seconds your bowl should be filled with a perfect jade-green foam. You can add more water now if you like your matcha to be less strong.
