    Handcrafted in Tokoname, Aichi prefecture Japan, this Mogake style teapot was made with gyokuro and light steamed asamushi sencha brewing in mind. The teapot was wrapped with seaweed, causing the salt from the seaweed to oxidize with the clay making a unique pattern on the teapot. 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.

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

    The set is intentionally made very small, holding just 60-80ml of water. The lid fits the inside of the teapot wall perfectly and is tilted to whatever degree the brewer would like the gap to be to pour efficiently, eliminating the need for a filter basket. With perhaps the exception of deep steamed green tea, this tea set could also be used for other green teas.

    • Only@O-Cha!

    Handcrafted in Saitama Prefecture Japan, this Shiboridashi green tea set was custom made especially for O-Cha.com with gyokuro brewing in mind. As gyokuro (the most expensive green tea per ounce) should be brewed at a lower temperatures and with a relatively larger amount of loose leaf, the use of this special set is ideal for gyokuro enthusiasts as it allows brewing a small amount of gyokuro leave multiple times.

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

    The teapot measures 10.0 cm wide x 6.5 cm tall, and holds 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. Specially designed grooves in the interior of the ceramic teapot body eliminate the need for a filter basket.

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

    Important! - While this teapot could be used with most larger leaf green teas (light steamed green tea), is not really suitable for deep steamed (fukamushi) or other green teas with very fine leaf particles.

    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. The clay used for this item originates in Kyoto.

    Since each of these items are had crafted, they may very slightly from the shown images - but not by much!  If you are a regular gyokuro drinker or have ever considered a foray into gyokuro, you will be hard pressed to find a better teapot for it than our handmade shiboridashi and houhin teapots!

    Set includes one shibori-dashi teapot and lid, 2 small matching gyokuro tea cups, and one yuzamashi (water cooler) for controling water temperature.

    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.

    A very nice handcrafted teapot from Tokoname Japan. While perfect for brewing multiple or single cups of green tea, this teapot was designed for deep steamed green tea (fukamushi-cha) but is suitable for all green teas including gyokuro. Due to the fine, sometimes dust-like nature of fukamushi leaf, small bits of leaf can often get stuck in the stainless steel mesh of many teapots. Unique to this design is the built-in stainless steel infuser screen which covers just a small area of the inside part of the spout.

    A very nice handcrafted teapot from Tokoname Japan. Perfect for brewing single cups of green tea, this teapot was designed for general green tea brewing. Built-in stainless steel infuser screen wraps 360 degrees around the inside of the spout. Very handy and sized for brewing a single cup or two of regular sencha. This teapot ca be used for fukamushi green tea or gyokuro as well. However due to the small leaf particle size of fukamushi-cha, small particles of leaf might occasionally become embedded in the infusor screen. If you are primarily a deep steamed green tea lover, a teapot dedicated to those would probably be more suitable.

    If deep steamed (fukamushi-cha) green tea is your thing, then this handcrafted Banko-yaki teapot should fit your needs nicely. It has been designed specifically for brewing deep steamed green tea, although it is suitable for all green teas including gyokuro. Unique features of this teapot include:

    • Backward sloping bottom. This effectively separates water from the wet leaves between infusions!
    • Large, round, extra-fine stainless steel infuser removeable infuser screen. Does an especially good job of filtering the characteristically fine leaf particles of deep steamed green tea.
    • Inner rim lip extrudes into the teapot, preventing dripping from the rim when teapot is tipped to an extreme angle.
    • Square handle for an easier grip!
    • Rubber tip on the spout - easier to pour with less mess!

    If you are looking for just one type of Japanese teapot that will brew just about any type of green tea, this item would make a very good choice.
