Handcrafted in Saitama Prefecture Japan, this Shiboridashi green tea set was custom made especially for O-Cha.com with gyokuro brewing in mind. As gyokuro (the most expensive green tea per ounce) should be brewed at a lower temperatures and with a relatively larger amount of loose leaf, the use of this special set is ideal for gyokuro enthusiasts as it allows brewing a small amount of gyokuro leave multiple times.

How to Brew Gyokuro - Step-by-Step Instructions!

The teapot measures 10.0 cm wide x 6.5 cm tall, and holds about 180ml / 6 ounces of water (without leaf). Included are two small matching teacups and a matching yuzamashi (water cooler) to help lower water temperature. Specially designed grooves in the interior of the ceramic teapot body eliminate the need for a filter basket.

An extremely nice feature about this teapot set is that all vessels stack within the main teapot for easy storage!

Important! - While this teapot could be used with most larger leaf green teas (light steamed green tea), is not really suitable for deep steamed (fukamushi) or other green teas with very fine leaf particles.

The potter of this item, Kazuhiro Arima, spent many years of his life studying ceramics in Kyoto, Kyushu near Nagasaki, and also spend years in Ishikawa. The craftsmanship of this items is superb and many not-so-obvious fine details went into making this teapot. The clay used for this item originates in Kyoto.

Since each of these items are had crafted, they may very slightly from the shown images - but not by much!  If you are a regular gyokuro drinker or have ever considered a foray into gyokuro, you will be hard pressed to find a better teapot for it than our handmade shiboridashi and houhin teapots!

Set includes one shibori-dashi teapot and lid, 2 small matching gyokuro tea cups, and one yuzamashi (water cooler) for controling water temperature.

This is my first shiboridashi. I've been drinking gyokuro teas for a long time, but used regular kyusu for brewing. It's a very nice set that I will use and treasure!

Advantages: Simple in use, brews great gyokuro

This is a great shiboridashi. It is delicate but also brews a great cup of sencha. The small cups allow you the option of getting 2 cups of sencha per brew. It is very nicely made.
