I recently purchased a beautiful handmade tea bowl from a tea company in Japan called Yuuki-Cha.com. I had ordered it before the earthquake struck and thankfully received it in good condition after the fact. After the earthquake I wanted to send a little piece of mine as a gift, so I donated it and my friend Elisabeth Galante (painter and Japanese tea fanatic) paid the shipping. They have recently thanked us and said that they will post a video making matcha green tea in my tea bowl on their blog in the next few weeks. I will post it here when I hear from them.
