Aletha and Eric designed the shape of the creamer to produce the thickest and richest matcha crema (creamy foam). This meant that the creamer had to have a wider bottom to accommodate the foaming activity and taper toward the top. The shape is minimalist; nothing extra is needed, not even a handle. The glazes—eggshell, blush, and parchment—beautifully highlight the outrageous color of the matcha.
Approximate dimensions are 4 inches tall, 2.75 inches upper diameter, and 3.5 inches lower diameter. Microwave and dishwasher safe.

I love this "creamer". We use it every day. Of course it works great as a pitcher in the Breakaway matcha process. We also use it to cool water before making gyokuro tea. Or to warm up in the microwave some coconut milk for a latte. In short it is elegant, useful and feels good in the hand. While we have many creative uses, it is funny we have not yet used it as a "creamer" in the traditional sense. When I broke my first one (dropped a pot on it while washing up) we had to make do until the new one arrived, and we kinda held out breath as it has become integral to much of our kitchen actions.

The matcha creamer is elegant and simple. It works as well as it looks. Nice vessel preparing your matcha tea.
