For those who understand that making tea is making art. These pieces are hand crafted with genuine Jingdezhen clay and have a mineral content which reacts with the heat in the firing. The glaze cascades from turquoise to warm sand to burnt umber, and has it's own unique freckles. No two pieces are the same.
The pot holds roughly 150ml and has an incredibly smooth, long pour.
The smaller cups are squat and sturdy and can hold roughly 30ml. The taller cups can hold about 50ml.
The set includes one pot, two cups and a free glass pitcher (not pictured).
The go-to gaiwan for steeping almost any tea. This 150ml gaiwan is crafted from Jingdezhen porcelain and is perfect for solo sessions or tea dates. The sides are not too thin, so it doesn't get too hot to handle, plus the wide rim keeps the edges cool so you won't burn your fingers. The lid fits snug and doesn't slip when pouring, making it an all-around perfect pouring experience.
Each cup holds 75ml of tea, so two cups perfectly fit the gaiwan's volume. You can always get extra cups if you like to host tea parties.
Gaiwans can be either purchased on their own, or as a set with the cups included.
Each time I use this teaware it elevates my tea experience to a higher level of beauty and mindfulness. Having such thoughtfully crafted pieces forces me to focus a bit more and in paying more attention brings a deeper more conscious intention to my tea ritual.
Each piece is one-of-a-kind and meticulously painted with beautiful waves. The firing brings out some of the minerals in the clay, creating a small freckles in the glaze. The gaiwan holds 150ml and feels so natural being handled and poured. The gaiwan is showcased beautifully on the matching plate which centers the eye and offers a practical and visually pleasing way to prepare and present the tea. Each cup holds 50ml so the set comes with a glass pitcher.
The gaiwan can also be purchases alone.

For those who value full transparency, this is the pot for you. Made from borosilicate glass that can withstand hot and cold water, this 125ml pitcher is great for almost any style of tea. It comes with a spring strainer inserted into the spout to strain out leaf particles but please be aware that if you steep small leaf teas like Japanese fukamushi, you will need to pour it through a finer sieve.
One of the best things about making tea is being able to witness the leaves reveal themselves as they steep. This pot allows you to see the transformation of the leaves and gauge the perfect time to pour as the liquor deepens.
Each cup holds 40ml, so the set will come with a free pitcher to hold the entirety of the steep so you can take your time rationing it into cups.
Please note that because of the position of the spout, you cannot fill the pot all the way to the rim. The maximum capacity is 125ml.
