    Call this my selfish little teapot because i reserve it for my best senchas & gyokuro and you are left with enough liquid that fills a small tasting cup to its brim. the flavors you get from this pot arent as neutral as a straight ceramic or porcelain pot so expect more body and character from the mineral content. holds heat nicely to the point where i have to put this pot onto a ceramic coaster when pouring. pouring without doing this has burned me a few times. the pour spout is very well dialed in as pours are ultra smooth and steady and very little leaf material makes it out to your cup. aesthetics are superb. it sits on my counter as a show piece and most people ask out of curiosity as to what this is. it will enhance your loose leaf teas. highly recommend.

    This teapot is beautiful to look at. The lid fits perfectly inside the rim and it pours well. A true piece of art that I cannot recommend enough!

    This shiboridashi is absolutely beautiful, the craftsmanship is unbelievable!
    I brew sencha and Japanese oolong in it. I even made smaller leaf Chinese green tea in it couple of times. Note that this one is relatively small, so you are getting only about 2 oz of tea out of it.

    Very nice pot for making gyokuro. The look and quality are outstanding. The thin walls give it a real quality feel. The teapot is easy to use and the perfect size.

    I have either gyokuro or matcha every morning to get the nutrients of an ingested tea. After a couple infusions the shallow wide open design of this teapot makes it easy to extract the gyokuro for eating.

    Couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.

    This little dish of a teapot is probably the most impressive looking one in my collection. The salt glazing process leaves an engrossing spiderweb effect that is hard to stop peering at. The grey/blue/earth tones combine with the general sheen to make it reminiscent of nothing so much as a Mirelurk shell. 

    Advantages: -Really good fit on the lid. Don't have to tilt it in the slightest to get a great pour.
    -Practical, makes a wonderful gyokuro. The walls are thin and don't suck up much heat, making an accurate steep easier.
    -Unglazed interior
    -Just a gorgeous little teapot 

    Disadvantages: No actual disadvantages, though it's worth nothing that the capacity is quite small on this one. Somewhere around 75ml. It's not for sharing gyokuro with many friends... Maybe one friend max. But that's part of the character of the pot and is not a criticism in the slightest.

    Very lovely. Nice to hold and touch. Great for gyokuro. Brown traces of 'mogake' on green based clay is pleasant to look at. The price is reasonable. Love it.

    Great little teapot, perfect for Gyokuro. Thin and elegant, I like the shape and the "mogake" design. It's very easy to use, the size is perfect for 1 person/cup. Recommended!

    Great teapot. Light, looks good and very well made. It keeps exactly one small tea cup, that is very convinient. I am using it for brewing gyokuro and asamushi tea. Very happy with that purchace.
