Matchawan Hana was produced in Toki – a Japanese city located in the Gifo prefecture on the Honsiu Island. Its origin constitutes a guarantee of conformity to the centuries-old tradition of the production of Japanese ceramics destined specifically for tea ceremony. Potter’s clay stoved in a stone oven equips the vessel with particular resistance to damage, and hence – high functionality. The simplicity of the vessel’s design gives it a touch of elegance, simultaneously increasing the comfort of matcha preparation ritual. The bowl, glazed with crystal enamel in the off-white shade embellished with a cherry blossom motif, brings to mind an idyllic Japanese spring, full of flourishing cherry tree aroma.
Matchawan is the most convenient vessel destined for matcha preparation, constituting an important element of traditional tea ceremony. The vertical walls and wide bottom allow one to easily blend matcha powder with water and quickly obtain the foam on the surface of the matcha drink.

MATCHA BAMBOO WHISK CHASEN
Traditional bamboo whisk or “chasen” is an indispensable tool of the Japanese matcha tea ceremony. The fine, handmade prongs are carved out in a single piece of bamboo. When using a chasen to whisk matcha it is best to keep a loose and relaxed wrist and make rapid zigzag motions in the shape of letter “W” or “M” – this helps to give matcha the ideal frothy texture.
WHISK HOLDER NAOSHI
The traditional matcha whisk holder is not only a beautiful element of the traditional Japanese matcha tea set. It is a very practical tool that helps your chasen dry faster and maintain its shape and durability.

MATCHA BAMBOO SPOON CHASHAKU
Chashaku is the traditional Japanese spoon for serving matcha and an integral part of the matcha tea ceremony. The curved portion of the spoon is used to scoop a small portion of tea and place in a bowl (matchawan). The mixture is then whisked to uniform consistency using a bamboo whisk (chasen). The amount of matcha served depends on individual preference. The thin tea or “usucha” is prepared with one or two chashaku of matcha and approximately 100ml of water.
