The Yoake matchawan is a traditional cup for preparing and drinking matcha. This unique handicraft is made of clay, which is then varnished with white and stone-grey glaze. The matchawan’s shape is inspired by traditional Japanese matcha teaware. A characteristic feature of this cup is its geometric cut in half, separating two delicate, minimalist colours. The wide bottom of the cup is perfect for preparing matcha with a chasen ‒ a bamboo whisk used traditionally in the Japanese tea ceremony.
The matchawan was hand-crafted by a local pottery business in United Kingdom. 10 years ago Natasha, the pottery artist changed her career and followed her dreams, finding the fulfilment in creating ceramic products. Her passion, effort and attention to detail attracted local shops, cafes and yoga studios. Natasha’s work has been recognised by international magazines such as Elle Decorations and was showcased in a vegan cooking handbook.
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 by craftsmen whose skills are past on from generation to generation. 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.
