PLEASE NOTE: because each piece is truly one of a kind, expect variations in color and shape. We really like using a single vessel for both making and drinking matcha. We've designed the shape of these matcha tumblers to maximize fine crema when preparing matcha with our handheld whisk, and turned to some of our favorite ceramicists to throw, glaze, and fire them in their signature styles.
