The Heart of the Experience: the chawan (茶碗 - tea bowl) is among tea’s most emblematic tools and comes in an almost limitless array of styles. As we explored in our article ‘Defining a Chawan: What Sets a Bowl Apart’, any appropriately sized or shaped bowl can serve as a chawan when used for making tea. In fact, numerous bowls utilized by renowned practitioners of chanoyu throughout Japan’s history were originally imported rice or food bowls. However, across centuries, these bowls gained such popularity within the tea room that today they are almost exclusively recognized as chawan.
