Product Description

Chawan Haigara

An elegant and refined chawan glazed with ash and minimal lustre.

Haigara is a ceremonial matcha bowl with a traditional look for people who love rustic ceramics. There is very little lustre to the bowl – it is more matt than anything – and does not have the typical lustrous finish of other ceramic bowls. The Haigara is glazed with wood ash in order to give certain spots a refined look and design. The Haigara chawan is named for this exceptional process; In Japanese haigara means ‘to ash’, with the wood ash glaze giving the chawan its matt and roughish texture.

The dark-green colour of the matcha bowl was inspired by the bright green of matcha tea.

What is a chawan?

Chawan is the Japanese name for a tea bowl that it is used to prepare matcha. It's much more than just a beautiful bowl, much attention is paid to its dimensions, the inside, the base and the rim when making a chawan. These elements are all important for preparing matcha and for the experience of drinking the tea.

  • It must be tall enough and wide enough
    The diameter and height of a chawan ensure that you can make the matcha without spilling and so that it feels natural when you hold the bowl as you drink.

    The diameter of a chawan is also important for the matcha-drinking experience – unlike a normal cup, the rim shields your nose from other aromas while drinking. There is enough space for the bowl to ‘hold’ your nose so that you can also inhale the aroma of the matcha. 

    Measurements chawan Haigara:
    Diameter: 12,5 cm
    Height: 7,5 cm
  • A smooth interior
    The inside of a chawan should be smooth so that it is easy to stir with your chasen or matcha whisk. Small bulges would inhibit the matcha from dissolving.

  • A sturdy base
    When you follow the steps for the Japanese tea ceremony as you prepare your matcha, at a certain point you will only be holding the chawan with one hand: the bowl must have a sturdy base so that it is both easy and safe to hold.

  • Soft rim
    The rim of a chawan should be neither too thick nor too thin and there cannot be any projections or bulges. When drinking matcha your attention should be on the taste and the experience, and any bulges will distract you.

Made in Japan, the Haigara chawan has a refined and simple look that evokes the Japanese concept of wabi, referring to ‘humbleness in simplicity’.
