Tea bowl (chawan 茶碗). A chawan is a teacup without a handle used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony. For preparing and drinking Matcha (powdered green tea), but is also used for other types of tea as well. It can also refer to a bowl for rice.
Shallow bowls, which allow the tea to cool rapidly, used in summer. Deep bowls used in winter. The best bowls thrown by hand. Irregularities and imperfections are prized. They are often featured prominently as the "front" of the bowl.
