    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.

    Perfect for gyokuro! I wanted only a shiboridashi without the tea cups or water cooler. Easy to use and beautiful. Can easily be a travel teaware to brew small quantities of just about anything but deep steamed tea.

    This small mogake shiboridashi is so lovely! It has a wonderful light green colour and the lid fits perfectly - excellent handmade quality by Hakusan for an outstanding price in comparison to other offers of japanese vendors that are specialized in Tokoname yaki - you can find some for 14000 yen which is about 100 Euro/136 Dollar. Thank you very much Kevin!
