Midorinami matcha bowl is destined for matcha consumption and was manually crafted with the use of porcelain on a traditional pottery wheel. It is inspired by traditional vessels used as tools for the Japanese tea ceremony Chanoyu. High walls of the bowl and its broad bottom facilitate the process of mixing matcha with water and help to obtain fluffy foam on the surface within seconds. It can be done with the use of a bamboo whisk chasen or an electric milk frother.
Midorinami was designed and executed by Quiet Form – a ceramics studio based in Kiev. Quiet Form was founded in 2006 by Alex and Tania, a couple sharing their love towards alluring shapes and natural colours. The porcelain, which they use to create memorable designs, is from Eastern Ukraine, and certified glaze comes from Germany. Midorinami matcha bowl of an astonishing deep green shade is covered with a matt material on the outside, and glossy enamel on the inside. It has irregular edges which are hand carved thus producing a different, unique bowl each time.
Please remember to use water not exceeding 80 °C temperature to preserve all the matcha properties.

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.
