All Ippodo chawan are made exclusively for us by artisans in Japan, to our design specifications. We work with these artisans to develop wide and deep chawan, to make the wide motion of whisking matcha easier, whether you are making regular usucha matcha, or koicha thick matcha. Our bowls are also light, and feel satisfying to hold in your hands.

The simple cream-white glaze of this chawan showcases the deep color of the matcha, and a subtle hakeme white brush stroke adorns the side of the bowl. After a while of using this bowl regularly, cracks will naturally begin to form in the glaze, forming a unique pattern. This change is meant to be cherished as a sign of a well-loved chawan

Gifu is a landlocked prefecture in the mountains in the central region of the main Japanese island. This prefecture is home to one of the most famous and storied traditions of pottery in all of Japan. Mino-yaki encompasses several distinct styles, each highly valued by the tea ceremony for centuries. The artisans producing our tea bowls in this region craft the clay for their works themselves by hand, from soil in the area.

Beautifully displays matcha’s color.

Cream Matcha Bowl

Lovely little bowl. Handles well. Good amount of room to whisk the Chasen. I usually did portions of 60ml, there's room for more though.

Perfect daily chawan

It’s a simple, beautiful matcha bowl. The green matcha tea is striking in this chawan. Great to hold and drink from.

Wonderful Bowl!

The detailing is so beautiful, and it is very pleasant to hold. The wide opening makes it very easy to whisk matcha, and the cream colour really showcases the matcha's green colour. I love using it every morning.
