Kutani Ware TEAPOT for Gyokuro

$100.00

Not just a teapot, but a fine piece of art dating from the 1960s

Description

This is an authentic hobin Kutani ware teapot without a handle. As such, it is most suitable for brewing tea that requires lower temperatures. Most often, that tea is gyokuro.

When gyokuro tea is brewed at 70 degrees Celsius (or less), the pot should not scold when it is picked up.

The teapot originates in Ishikawa prefecture on Japan’s western coast. The item dates from the 1960s. While it has acquired the patina of age, it remains in faultless condition. 

This unique Kutani ware teapot will suit an avid collector and drinker of the finest Japanese tea.

by Cha Crusade on THE MINI Raw Pu'er Cake
A great first pu'er cake

This was the first raw pu'er cake I ever purchased and was a great introduction to what a young raw pu'er is like. By flash steeping, this can last for over a dozen steeps. It has that classic bitterness that the Lincang region is known for, which I find quite enjoyable. After the first few flash-steeps, you'll begin to really notice the sweetness kicking in and a menthol sensation building in the throat. It's fun experiencing the tea changing as the session progresses. There are better young raw pu'er cakes out there but this one is solid, and the unusually small size keeps the price down enough to make it easier to try.

Thanks for the feedback, Cha Crusade! Great to know you're getting so many steeps out of The Mini.

by Misbah on JX Organic Oolong
Oolong love you long time

This tea is perfect for vegans or those that crave a creamy warm texture to their teas. It's a perfect middle path for me because I generally don't enjoy green teas. It's like a perfect marriage between a green tea and a black tea. The flavours seem to intensify on a second or third infusion of the tea leaves.

We're very glad you enjoy the Jinxuan oolong, Misbah.

MATCHA (Unkaku: ‘Crane in the Clouds’)

Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!

Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.
