            Arita Teapot "Kohiki Budō"

            Introducing the Arita Teapot "Kohiki Budou," a high-quality handcrafted teapot from Arita, Japan, renowned for its ceramic artistry. This exquisitely designed teapot is ideally suited for the art of brewing green tea, providing an exceptional tea experience with every use. Its compact size makes it perfect for serving single cups, ensuring a fresh and flavorful brew each time.

            The "Kohiki Budou" features a uniquely designed infuser screen that is deep rather than wide and is fully removable. This thoughtful design allows the wet tea leaves to drain completely after each infusion, preventing them from sitting in moisture at the bottom of the teapot. This not only enhances the flavor and quality of the tea but also extends the life of the leaves for multiple infusions.

            With a capacity of 250ml (8.5oz), this teapot combines traditional Japanese aesthetics with functional modern design, making it a beautiful and practical choice for any tea lover.

                    Uji Shincha Kirameki

                    Experience the rare delight of Uji Shincha Kirameki, exclusively offered by the historic Tsuen Tea Shop, Japan's oldest tea merchant residing along the picturesque Uji River for over 860 years. This exceptional tea is a once-a-year phenomenon during the shincha season, and once depleted, it won't be available until the next harvest. While Tsuen Tea does offer the Ujibashi San no Ma blend after shincha season, the Kirameki holds a distinctive charm that makes it uniquely sought-after.

                    Meticulously crafted from the finest 100% Uji-grown (Wazuka village) Yabukita leaves harvested during the first flush, this asamushi (lightly steamed) sencha enchants with its vibrant, grassy aroma and refined flavor. Kirameki represents the epitome of Japanese green tea, offering a fleeting taste of spring's fresh vitality.

                    Important Brewing Notes:  For this year's tea, brew similar to gyokuro at 60 C / 140 F for about 90 seconds.  This is lower than most sencha.  Thus, you should pre-warm your brewing vessels (teapot and teacups) prior to brewing, otherwise the result will be tepid.  If you do this correctly, you will be greeting with a wonderful umami green tea experience.

                    Do not miss the opportunity to indulge in this limited-edition brew. Secure your 100-gram package today and immerse yourself in the exquisite pleasures of shincha season with Uji Shincha Kirameki.

It quickly became a favorite for its profound umami taste and rich aroma, distinguishing itself from more heavily steamed varieties.

                            The lighter steaming process of this Asamushi version enhances its aromatic qualities and flavor, offering a tea experience that is both nuanced and refreshing. Each sip delivers a vibrant burst of flavor, perfectly balancing invigoration and relaxation.

                            Due to high demand and limited quantities, Organic Sae Midori Asamushi is often sold out by December each year. We encourage you to secure your portion of this exceptional tea soon, ensuring a special place in your tea repertoire.

                                Tokoname Shiboridashi Teapot

                                Discover the artistry of our Shiboridashi teapot, meticulously handcrafted in Tokoname Prefecture, Japan. This teapot is exquisitely tailored for gyokuro enthusiasts, accommodating the specific brewing requirements of this luxurious loose-leaf green tea. Known for its need for lower temperatures and higher tea-to-water ratios, gyokuro finds a perfect match in this teapot's design, which ensures optimal flavor extraction and precise temperature control during multiple infusions.

                                The Shiboridashi teapot's compact size, measuring 10.5 cm wide by 5.3 cm tall and holding approximately 100ml (3.4 ounces), is ideally suited for preparing individual cups of tea. Its unique design foregoes a traditional filter basket, featuring instead a narrow gap between the teapot’s body and the lid, which aids in a smooth pour while effectively retaining larger tea leaves, such as those of gyokuro and light-steamed asamushi sencha. This thoughtful feature makes it especially suited for teas requiring room to expand without escaping into the brew.

                                Please note, due to its specific features, this teapot is recommended for larger leaf teas and may not be suitable for finer leaf varieties like fukamushi-cha, which could slip through the gap.

                                Crafted with an eye for both beauty and functionality, each Shiboridashi teapot is a testament to the skilled craftsmanship of Tokoname artisans. Due to the handcrafted nature of these teapots, slight variations from the images shown are to be expected, each piece adding a unique character to your tea brewing rituals.

                                Ideal for those deeply invested in the nuances of green tea, particularly gyokuro, this Shiboridashi teapot promises a refined brewing experience, blending traditional techniques with modern aesthetic sensibilities.

                                    Shiboridashi Teapot for Green Tea

                                    Experience the unparalleled quality of our handcrafted Shiboridashi teapot from Tokoname Prefecture, Japan. This exquisite teapot is increasingly rare and highly sought after by tea connoisseurs, especially those who appreciate the delicate nuances of brewing gyokuro, the most luxurious and costly type of loose-leaf green tea. Designed to brew at lower temperatures with a double amount of loose leaves, this teapot is perfect for extracting the subtle flavors and deep umami characteristic of gyokuro.

                                    The Shiboridashi teapot's small size is purposefully designed to hold about 60ml (2 ounces) of water, making it ideal for preparing just one or two small cups at a time. This allows for multiple, concentrated infusions, each capturing the essence of the tea. The unique design features a thin gap between the inner body of the teapot and the lid, eliminating the need for a traditional filter basket and enhancing the infusion process for larger leaf teas like gyokuro and light-steamed asamushi sencha.

                                    It’s important to note that due to its specific design, this teapot is best suited for larger leaf teas and not recommended for fine leaf particles like those found in deep-steamed green tea (fukamushi-cha).

                                    Each Shiboridashi teapot is a testament to the artisan's skill, with attention to detail that might not be immediately apparent but significantly enhances both functionality and aesthetic appeal. Given the handcrafted nature of these teapots, slight variations from the images shown may occur, adding to the uniqueness of each piece.

                                    For those deeply engaged in the art of tea, particularly gyokuro enthusiasts, our Shiboridashi and Houhin teapots offer an optimal brewing tool, combining traditional craftsmanship with effective modern design.
