The focus of our tea ceremony set "Sumi" (Japanese "ink") is the elegant matcha bowl with its deliberately irregular shape and the wavy edge, which represents the hilly landscape of Japan. The design of the bowl is based on Japanese calligraphy, another part of Japanese culture alongside tea, and its characteristic flow is reminiscent of ink drawings. The relatively large bowl has a diameter of 12 cm and a height of 8 cm. With a volume of approx. 435 ml, the bowl offers enough space to whip the matcha tea until it is foamy.
The course and design of the glaze vary slightly, which means that no two bowls are alike. Each one is unique.
The bamboo matcha whisk, also called chasen, included in the set is an essential accessory for preparing matcha tea. It has 80 bristles and allows the matcha tea to be beaten with a firm and handsome foam. After use, simply rinse the bamboo broom with lukewarm water and place it on the broom holder provided with the bristles pointing downwards. The special shape of the holder ensures that the bristles are protected and keep their shape longer. With the traditional bamboo spoon (chashaku), the Matcha powder is optimally dosed into the bowl (1 heaped spoon corresponds to 1g).
The set is completed by a 30g zip bag with original Japanese organic Matcha* from Mie Prefecture in southern Japan.
