    A beautiful teaset. The houhin pours beautifully into the teacups. It is not suitable for higher temperature brewing as it does not have a handle, but that's to be expected.

    A great teaset, especially for japanese green teas (better if light steamed). I personally use it also for other teas and it works perfectly. Very good quality of the materials. Highly recommended!

    I have tried to master brewing gyokuro since since the early 80's only to find it beyond my skill. The shiboridashi crafted by Kazuhiro Arima enabled me to realize my dream. It is beautiful and feels wonderful in the hand. If you are contemplating brewing gyokuro, you must have one of these!

    This is a lovely- designed set of teapot. Texture is great. Plain and functional. Just perfect for brewing gyokuro. I really love it. The service is also very good. Very happy with the order. I also bought a mogake one.

    This is a beautiful tea set, delicate yet perfectly functional. I am a novice when it comes to Japanese tea, but through O-Cha I am beginning to learn, and experience the delights of Japanese tea. A truly great company with great products and great service. Thank You

    This was my first purchase from O-Cha. It is a fragile yet functional piece, and I do not regret buying it in the slightest. Overall, I use the water cooler to measure the amount of water as to provide about one-third to one-half of the full amount the shiboridashi can hold, as I normally drink alone. I also do not use the teacups for myself (I use a large teacup), however I probably would if I was sharing with another person. Do not hesitate to buy this piece, as it was wrapped well and shipped promptly.

    Works great for gyokuro. I like the convenience of cleanup too, not fond on pots with mesh strainer.

    This is my first shiboridashi. I've been drinking gyokuro teas for a long time, but used regular kyusu for brewing. It's a very nice set that I will use and treasure!

    This is a great shiboridashi. It is delicate but also brews a great cup of sencha. The small cups allow you the option of getting 2 cups of sencha per brew. It is very nicely made.
