  • Triple kiln fired tea pots and matching tea cups (sold separately). The first firing in a red hot kiln sets the raw soft clay and transforms it into a hard ceramic teapot. Two more firings in the kiln set the graphite black and the deep dark blue glazes to create this beautiful teapot and matching teacups.

    The cups are pleasing to hold. The rough and contrasting smooth glaze finishes make a tactile experience. Add some authenticity to your enjoyment of Sencha or Gyokuro with the nicer Japanese teaware

  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.
