Matchawan plays an important part of traditional Japanese tea ceremony and a beautiful object as well. The colours of matchawan Nepu can remind us of a dense dark forest, as it’s almost black in its lowest parts and gradually becomes lighter as the glaze reaches the top just like the forest becomes lighter the higher you look, as the sun shines through the branches. This tea vessel was first shaped in a mold and then worked on by hand, that’s why its shape is unique and unrepeatable. It was crafted on Honsiu Island in the Oroshi district of the city of Toki. The Oroshi district is famous for making recognised ceramics, including shino ware, known for its unique glazing style. Its wide bottom makes it easy to prepare matcha using a chasen, the – traditional bamboo whisk used to combine matcha powder with water. This carefully crafted matchwan will make a useful vessel as well as a stylish element of your kitchen.
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.
