Japanese Houhin traditionally used for brewing Gyokuro, but is a great teapot for any Japanese tea (other than matcha). In fact, this teapot could be used for almost any type of tea. Elegant, non-porous white porcelain teapot with a wide pour spout and built in strainer. We found these lovely tea vessels while traveling through Uji, Japan and visiting various tea farms and producers. This is the same area that we source our Gyokuro and Matcha iri Sencha.
