This gorgeous matcha tea bowl is an authentic Japanese craft that is used for tea ceremonies. The design depicts night cherry blossom viewing. When the tea is served, the contrast between the green of matcha and the dark charcoal bowl is exquisite. When you finish drinking it, some fallen cherry petals will reveal on the inside. In Japan, cherry blossoms come out in April, which can be still chilly so the bowl is thicker for winter use.
One of the most loved floral motifs cherry blossom “Sakura” is featured. This type of ceramics is called Rakuyaki (楽焼 Raku Ware) and it is prestigious and highly regarded in ceramics. Comes in a signed wooden box, wrapped in an orange protective cloth.
Suitable Season: Winter/Spring
Not dishwasher/microwave safe
Raku ware made in Kyoto, Japan
