Kasane-jawan (meaning "stacked chawan") belongs to the first group of eight Konarai (see kyojo) temae that a student typically learns. This koicha temae is appropriate for situations when there are more than five guests present. The name of this temae is derived from the fact that the teishu enters the room with two chawan, one stacked inside the other. The uppermost chawan contains the chakin and chasen and the chashaku is balanced on its rim in the standard manner. During the temae the teishu unstacks the chawan and prepares koicha in both chawan for the large number of guests.
