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! :)
Dear Ken Tanaka,
My apologies for the very late reply...
I'm beyond happy to own the Glass Katakuchi Serving Bowl! It's absolutely beautiful and I couldn't believe that I'm actually holding it in my hands. The size is perfect, and whisking of the matcha powder with water is such a breeze. Thank you so much!!!
I wanted a bowl with a spout because I often make matcha latte by pouring the matcha from the bowl over milk. This works great for that.
The intended use of using it to pour servings into smaller cups seems strange to me as matcha is traditionally enjoyed from a larger bowl.
The packaging and presentation was very nice too.
