7-Piece Hagi Ware TEA SET by Sakakura Shinbei XIV

$250.00

A special tea set from one of Japan’s most respected potters 

Description

This Hagi ware tea set represents a living, breathing tradition from Yamaguchi, southwest Japan.

Hagi ware (Hagi-yaki) goes back to the early 17th century, when expert Korean potters were brought to Japan at the behest of a feudal lord. 

Sakakura Shinbei XIV (1917-1975), the legendary creator of this Hagi ware tea set, was a 14th generation potter and descendant of one of the founders of Hagi pottery.

Recognizing Sakakura Shinbei XIV’s place in the tradition, Yamaguchi prefecture honoured him as an important “human cultural treasure” in 1972.

It’s not every day that a Hagi ware tea set of this calibre becomes available. 

What This Hagi Ware Tea Set Includes

You’ll get a brewing/serving pot with built-in strainer and 6 individual tea cups. Each piece is a beautiful expression of the studied simplicity that is characteristic of Hagi ware. 

This wonderful tea set is finished in a grey glaze with pink blush throughout. It is perfect for brewing a range of Japanese teas, especially large servings of genmaicha and hojicha

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.
