Hohin translates literally to "treasure jar" and refers to Japanese handle-less teapots. The design is like a cross between an easy gaiwan and a shiboridashi, and has a built-in clay strainer. This allows for finer leaf senchas or fukamushis, which might slip through the spout of a shiboridashi. If you haven't used one of these before, I highly recommend it.
This pot holds 125ml, roughly 5oz. of tea.
Please be mindful of caring for this tea pot. Rinse it well after use and never put it in the dishwasher.
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.
Simple and classic, this teapot is perfect for showcasing your loose leaf teas. Made of high borosilicate glass, these pots can withstand temperatures between -4°F to 300°F. The lid is made from bamboo and fits snugly on top.
With a capacity for holding one quart, this is ideal for making cold brew or iced tea or when you have several guests to serve.
There is a spring strainer that fits in the spout that will strain out most larger leaves. If you plan to make a smaller leaf tea, you will need to pour through a finer strainer.
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.
