Tea Bowls

The tea bowl originated in China as a way to prepare powdered teas and became especially popular during the Song Dynasty (AD 960). With the widespread availability of loose-leaf teas in modern times, the tea bowl is now mainly associated with preparing matcha for the Japanese tea ceremony. Still, the tea bowl is versatile and makes a perfect vessel to brew any type of loose-leaf tea, in addition to the traditional Japanese matcha. Our selection of tea bowls is elegant and easy to use for brewing loose teas: simply add tea leaves and hot water, steep a few minutes and drink directly from the bowl.
