100% Hand Made in Japan and Ethically Sourced

Crafted in Japan by skilled artisans, this Chawan Sakura Unofu bowl is handmade using traditional clayworking and glazing techniques.

Made out of premium raw materials

This Chawan Sakura Unofu is made out of premium clay, quartz and feldspar from Gifu prefecture, where pottery has been made since ancient times. This region has produced some of the most famous styles of pottery like Oribe and Shino. This tea is made using the Unofu style, where the straw of rice grown without pesticides is burned and turned to ash. This ash is then used as the raw material for the glaze. This results in a warm, natural white color.

Benefits of the Chawan Sakura Unofu

Making matcha with this Chawan Sakura Unofu bowl offers several benefits. The steeper sides make whisking the tea easier, reducing the likelihood of spills. The thick clay adds a sense of importance to the tea ceremony and helps keep the matcha warm when preheated.
