Encha Wave Matcha Bowl is the second beautifully hand-crafted ceramic piece by our local potter in San Jose, California. We wanted a matcha bowl for folks who like lighter colors, but with subtle sophistication. The natural interaction between the white and the black glazes during firing created a random blue speckled stripe. I used the first prototype on a family vacation in Hawaii when I took my parents to face and solve a family problem. It was then that “wave” came about as an inspiration.
People who are new to whisking matcha tend to be very gentle and afraid of making a splash. We also tend to be afraid of “waves” in our lives. Instead, you should feel free to whisk up a big matcha wave, as Encha matcha bowls are designed to provide ample whisking room. After the big wave, you can progressively slow down in W motion to create a calm micro-foam froth of your Encha tea.
Functionally, Encha Wave Bowl is designed in the same way as Zen bowl to be optimal for whisking your Encha Organic Matcha:
Enjoy the Wave!
