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.

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.
