With Shirakawa-cha Teaware Complete Set, there is no need to buy each teaware separately. You can enjoy the delicious Shirakawa tea right away.
ALL TEAWARE IS MADE IN JAPAN.
Shirakawa-cha Teaware Complete Set includes the following teaware.
- Kyusu ( 急須 ) --- Teapot for Japanese green tea. (180ml. /6.1oz)
- Chawan ( 茶碗 ) --- 4 small Japanese teacups.
- Chasaji ( 茶匙 ) --- Teaspoon for measuring tea leaves.
- Chakan ( 茶缶 ) --- Can container for keeping tea leaves. (enough size for 100g tea leaves.)
Both teapot and teacups are not so large in size. But teapot is the right size to pour out the tea all the way through, and teacups are a good size to drink up.
Tea changes in taste and color as time passes. If you leave hot water in a teapot filled with tea leaves, it will become bitter and not as tasty. If you make a cup of tea and leave it alone, the color and taste will change in five minutes.
If you want to enjoy the second steeping of tea, fill the teapot with hot water and pour it into the teacup when you are ready to drink.
