The Shizuku (Teardrop) contemporary teapot and tea cup set is perfect for sharing a cup of tea with a friend. Ergonomically designed with a modern flair and made in Banko. Banko, located in the Mie prefecture of Japan, is famous for their high quality teapots, which have become a household staple across Japan. A rich brown gradient on the outside with a crackled green-grey glaze on the inside. Using soil rich in iron and kiln fired for an extended period of time has an effect on absorbing the astringency of tea. A graceful white brush stroke on the inside of the tea cups adds a finishing touch to this beautiful and unique set. This teapot can also be used for serving sake. Add a cloth wrapped Japanese tea sampler for that special gift.
