Matchawan Nozu is a handmade clay matcha bowl, created specifically for the experience of drinking matcha. The composition of bare clay and gentle glaze alludes to the traditional Japanese crockery. The lower part of the bowl is of a rough, raw texture, and the upper one is coated with a crystalline glaze in a delicate, milky green colour.
Matchawan Nozu was created in collaboration with Mruki, a small ceramic workshop run by Joanna Michalska – where each and every piece is being created carefully and lovingly. The bowls are crafted by hand on a traditional pottery wheel, and subsequently hardened in an electric furnace in a temperature reaching 1240 C. Thanks to the singular nature of the studio, each of the bowls is carefully refined and unconditionally unique.
Matchawan is the most comfortable vessel destined for drinking matcha and an inherent element of Japanese tea ceremony. Vertical walls and wide bottom enable a quick and convenient matcha preparation and creation of velvety froth.
Volume: 400 ml Height: 7,5-8,5 cm Diameter: 10,5-11,5 cm. Country of origin: Poland. Dishwasher safe.
As this is a handcrafted product, dimension and appearance may vary slightly.
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.
Material: porcelain. Size: 7cm (height) x 6cm (diameter). Color: Onyx black. Dishwasher safe.
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.
Material: Bamboo. Length: 18cm. Not dishwasher safe.
