Matchawan, also known as a bowl, is the most convenient tool designed for matcha consumption and preparation, being an intrinsic element of centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony. Its flat bottom helps quickly mix matcha powder with water and quickly obtain rich foam on the surface of the matcha drink. The Kumo bowl was made from potter’s clay in Gifu prefecture. Kumo’s shape is spherical, which distinguishes it from other matchawans. The bowl is smooth on the insde, while being covered with an irregular, chequered enamel on the outside. Its bottom is bare and bright. The bowl is an example of Mino ware, which is one of the most important and prominent Japanese pottery techniques. The crockery created in accordance to Mino can be found in every other Japanese household. Mino-yaki originates in present-day Korea and its history dates back to the 7th century.
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.
