Gifu Ware (Mino-yaki)
Gifu is a landlocked prefecture in the mountains in the central region of the main Japanese island, to the east of Kyoto. 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.
Note: The tea cloth (fukin) is 100% cotton, so the color may fade or run when washed.
The bowl was formed on the potter's wheel from coarse clay, with the area around the foot of the bowl left unglazed to ensure your fingers can grip it without slipping when holding the bowl in one hand to pour out freshly whisked matcha.
Part of the tea bowl's charm comes from the way the coarse texture of the earthenware is exposed at the foot of the bowl to form a triangular base, and how that contrasts with the rest of the bowl, which is covered with a white glaze that imparts a warm impression.
Designed with a depression along its sides, the bowl provides a natural handhold.
Sieve the desired amount of matcha powder through tea strainer.
Pour hot water (at about 80 ℃) into tea bowl.
Use whisk to mix matcha powder and hot water for about 15 seconds.
Pour even servings into your favorite teacups, and you are done.

This is a replacement to for the grey tea bowl with spout we had that got chipped. While waiting for this one to arrive, we used one from Amazon. Nothing in comparison! The Ippodo tea bowl is well balanced, not too wide but deep enough to make double servings. The Amazon one is too heavy, wide and shallow making it very hard to use. We were so happy when this one arrived. The black color brings out the beautiful color of the matcha.
