A matcha bowl, also known as a chawan, is a traditional Japanese bowl used for preparing and drinking matcha, a powdered green tea. Matcha bowls are wider than they are tall, with rounded shape that allows the tea to be whisked easily.
Matcha bowls are an important part of Japanese tea ceremony and are used to create a sense of harmony and balance between the tea, the drinker, and the environment. They are often passed down through generations as family heirlooms or gifted to friends and loved ones as a symbol of friendship and respect.
