Review I am a huge fan of Mr. Mori's art and own the Matcha bowl offered here along with the Grape painted yunomi that matches this Spring/Summer Set. His work always looks even better in Person once you recieve and can FEEL it both physically and imagine, in your mind, the Time he took to create such lovely works! The Peony cup is very pretty and evokes cooler Spring days and mornings with it's pale, pastel pink and white colored flower petals that are accented by glints of gold and delicate green leaves. The scraped out circular areas on the outside of the cup add definition to the blooming flower and also help you to grip it. It was a wonderful idea of his that also allows that orange color to randomly appear, very beautiful!
I had been using this Peony cup to enjoy the Season as I had Matcha and paired it with the Shincha Matcha (which was incredibly delicious and fresh, PLEASE offer it again next Season!) and although I was drinking the Matcha hot, the other day I decided to enjoy the very last bit of my Shincha Matcha cold and in this appropriately matching cup's atmosphere. It was a wonderful treat and I regret not having tried cold Matcha, definitely had it been Shincha Matcha sooner. I did not drink it iced, I used cold, refrigerated water that I poured directly into the Shincha Matcha Canister (I wanted every last powder particle!!) and shook the canister very hard several Times, than I left the canister unopened inside the refrigerator to "cold brew" for awhile and then it was finally ready so I emptied the refreshing cold Shincha Matcha into the beautiful Peony cup's statement of fresh Spring and had an incredible Green Moment!
