Hey there Teacups! I’m finally back with another Let’s Talk Teaware post, I feel like I don’t write for this series near as much as I want to so I’m going to try to make my posts for that series much more frequent if I can (cross your fingers for me). For today’s Lets Talk Teaware post I’m going to be reviewing a beautiful blue matcha bowl I bought not to long ago from Nothing but Tea. I was first introduced to Nothing but Tea through a Tea Tourist box a few months back and ever since I’ve admired all their blends and Teaware. After my T2 matcha masterclass I knew that I had to get myself a matcha bowl and because I had been following Nothing but Tea for a while I knew exactly where to go and exactly what I wanted because I had, had my eye on this matcha bowl for a long time by then. (In fact, I think I bought it online before I even got home that day)
I had, had my eyes on this Yuto matcha bowl for at least a few weeks before I ordered I loved the baby blue colour and the light brown paint spots it has dotted around it that pair perfect with the shade of brown that was used to line the rim of the bowl. Quite frankly I don’t know why I waited so long to order this (probably because I get buyer remorse every time I tried myself to anything ha-ha) but I’m glad It was still available for me to buy when I got around to finally doing it. What I didn’t realise when I bought this that this is bigger than an average matcha bowl. (It’s 13cm diameter and 7.5cm high)
Which isn’t a bad thing at all and I actually enjoy using it more than I do smaller matcha bowls because as a naturally clumsy person it gives me a little extra room for any mistakes I will inevitably make every time I prepare matcha. On the pictures I had seen online this didn’t look like it had any distortion to it like all of the other matcha bowls I had used in my matcha masterclass and I was a little bit worried that I had ordered the wrong thing but my worries were eased when I saw it in person and could see it much more clearly. It doesn’t have obvious distortion to it and its much more cleanly made than a lot of matcha bowls I’ve seen/ used and aesthetically I think I like it a lot more.
Overall I really enjoy using this matcha bowl its of great quality and makes the matcha making process so much easier (trying it make and enjoy matcha without a bowl is tedious and put me off for a while). When I first bought the bowl I was wary at the fact that is was only £6.60 I thought that their had to have been some sort of catch but once it arrived it blew all of my preconceived expectations out of the water. I applaud Nothing but Tea for keeping their Teaware prices so reasonable and not giving up on quality to do it. Sure this won’t be the only matcha bowl that I own in my life but I for one think it was the best one I could have started my matcha Teaware journey with. I’ll be going back to Nothing but Tea for so many more Teaware pieces and I think you should too.
Overall Teaware Rating: 5/5
