        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.

                Organic Gyokuro Haruto

                Discover the Best Organic Gyokuro Green Tea: Haruto

                Indulge in the exquisite taste of Haruto, the best organic gyokuro green tea. This new and rare variety of gyokuro green tea was registered only 8 years ago. Grown by a select few farms in Kyushu, our Haruto is cultivated in Shibushi City, Kagoshima Prefecture. This tea is harvested earlier in the season, making it susceptible to frost damage, which adds to its rarity and exceptional quality.

                Why Choose Organic Gyokuro Haruto?

                • Exclusive Rarity: With its limited cultivation and recent introduction, encountering Organic Gyokuro Haruto is a unique opportunity.
                • Award-Winning Quality: This high-quality green tea has been recognized with awards in Japan for its elegant sweetness, rich umami, and dark green tea leaves.
                • Organic Excellence: Unlike many organic gyokuro green teas, Haruto stands out with its superb quality, making it a rare gem in the tea world. Due to the restrictions on growing organic green teas, it's extremely difficult to find an organic gyokuro that tastes as good as non-organic gyokuro, but Haruto is one of the rare exceptions.

                A Worthwhile Investment

                While Organic Gyokuro Haruto may be priced higher than regular sencha, its exceptional quality and rarity justify the cost. Less than 1% of all green tea is grown and harvested as gyokuro, and an organic variety of this caliber is even more uncommon.

                Brewing Perfection

                Haruto, the best organic gyokuro green tea, offers complex, strong umami notes and a delightful aftertaste that lingers. For the best experience, brew it in a shiboridashi teapot with care, following our detailed brewing instructions: How to Brew Gyokuro - Step-by-Step Instructions! Once you master the art of brewing gyokuro, you'll be hooked for life.
