Handcrafted in Saitama Prefecture Japan, this green tea set was custom made especially for O-Cha.com with gyokuro brewing in mind. Since gyokuro should be brewed at a lower temperature and with double the amount of loose leaf (usually the most expensive green teas available), the use of this special set is ideal for gyokuro enthusiasts, allowing multiple infusions from the same gyokuro leaf. It's also quite suitable for light steamed asamushi sencha as well.

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

The actual size of this set is purposefully small, with the teapot measuring 8.5 cm wide x 5 cm tall (3.46" x 2") and holding about 100ml / 3.4 ounces of water. Included are two small matching teacups and a matching yuzamashi (water cooler) to help lower water temperature. Special grooves in the inner body of the teapot eliminate the need for a filter basket.

Important to note - While this teapot could be used with larger leaf green teas (light steamed green tea), it is not suitable for anything with a fine leaf particle such as deep steamed green tea (fukamushi-cha).

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. Please note that since each of these items are had crafted, they may very slightly from the shown images. The clay used for this item originates in Kyoto.

Set includes one shiboridashi teapot and lid, 2 small matching gyokuro tea cups, and one yuzamashi (water cooler) for controlling water temperature. Important to note: As these are handcrafted, naturally the color of each batch can vary. The current batch is somewhat darker and more violet-blue instead of the lighter blue seen in most of the photos:
