Handcrafted in Saitama Prefecture Japan, this Houhin green tea set was custom made especially for O-Cha.com with gyokuro brewing in mind and is based on a not so often encountered, traditional design. As gyokuro (usually the most expensive green teas available) should be brewed at a lower temperatures and with double the amount of loose leaf, the use of this special set is ideal for gyokuro enthusiasts, allowing multiple infusions from the same gyokuro leaf. This teapot is also quite suitable for light steamed green tea (asamushi sencha).

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

The teapot measures 10.5 cm wide x 7 cm tall (3.46" x 2"), and holding 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. Holes in the ceramic inner body of the teapot eliminate the need for a filter basket.

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

Note - While this teapot could be used with most larger leaf green teas (light steamed green tea), it is not really suitable for deep steamed (fukamushi) green tea or green tea with a fine leaf particle.
