Glass Katakuchi Serving Bowl
Matcha bowl with pouring spout
Introducing a theatrical element to your modern matcha-brewing experience, this stunning matcha katakuchi (spouted bowl) is meticulously designed for whisking matcha and pouring it into the serving cup, all in one device
A stylish blend of beautiful aesthetics and ergonomic design, this matcha katakuchi is specially handcrafted to create an all-in-one matcha-brewing device for modern-day matchaeologists. The bowl features heat-resistant borosilicate glass, a visually striking and practical material to showcase the beautiful colour of the matcha as it’s being prepared. Its internal depth and curvature are precisely designed to accommodate the matcha whisking process and prevent splashing to the upper part of the bowl. It features a depression along its sides to provide a natural handhold, and a concave base to ensure your fingers can grip it without slipping as you pour your freshly whisked matcha with one hand into your favourite serving cup. Unlike a traditional chawan bowl, whose ceramic surface can easily wear away the tip of your chasen bamboo whisk, this preparation bowl features a glass surface that is whisk-friendly, providing a more durable long-term solution to your daily matcha making. Perfect for use with our Traditional Chasen.

This Katakuchi bowl is so much roomier than my normal bowl so no spilling and I could whisk like crazy!! 😂😂
So I've been using my glass katakuchi bowl for the last couple of weeks, and I have to say it is probably one of the best purchases I have ever made. The bowl itself is incredibly lightweight yet feels extremely sturdy, when whisking matcha the whisk just glides over the glass without any resistance (I noticed my previous stone chawan had some resistance which would wear the whisk down eventually) and the fact that it's made of pure glass means I can actually see the colour of the matcha while I'm brewing it. I also absolutely love the way they've added the handhold around the middle - it makes it incredibly easy to pour the matcha one-handed into a smaller cup for drinking, and the whole bowl just looks absolutely beautiful.
All in all, I don't think I have ever seen such a beautiful chawan before - it's definitely made brewing matcha a lot easier and I'd recommend it to any and all matcha enthusiasts! :)
The Glass Katakuchi Serving Bowl is one of those items that you don't think you need until you have them. If you love making Matcha tea just as much as I do using this bowl makes the ceremony even more special and pleasing. Worth every penny and the perfect addition to your Matcha heaven.
I love traditional clay Chawans, however, I thought this would make a lovely neutral piece in the office, and I was right. Looks beautiful, feels elegant (and fragile so be careful). The ONLY thing I might do a little differently is perhaps a slightly deeper, more pronounced pour spout. If you don't pour too fast, though, you are perfect. Very happy with this purchase. If you like it in the picture you will love it in person.
