The Sakura flower on our chawan, or Japanese tea bowl, is, of all the tea utensils, the most familiar to Westerners and yet its significance is rarely appreciated. More than a tea cup, its primary role is as the direct connection between host and guest. It can transcend its' function and take on a spirit of its' own. As these bowls are used over time they mature and improve.
