It is great that the black bamboo whisk is offered for sale. It is one of my favorites as it is very sturdy and holds up longer than othe whisks I have had. It is stiffer than the thinner cut whisks are but does eventually get a little less stiff. I find it gives as goo...(more)

Last year I broke my previous kyusu, bought two since then which didn't satisfy me. I should have listened to myself earlier as this is the one I wanted the most, and it has proven to be wonderful in every way. There are some teawares that make you long to have more tea...(more)

Thank you Hibiki-an for bringing back my favorite treat and one of the most perfect things to have with matcha. I love all the flavors but the brown sugar one is the best, always. Hope you can always keep these in stock.

This is a lovely cup with subtle coloration and a dreamy mood to it. Very suitable for different seasons but especially fall and winter. The clear overglaze is quite thick in areas and the crackles of the glaze are very large on the outside, reminiscent of a thin layer ...(more)

I couldn't help myself, I fell in love with the design of both of the Inka Mon cups as soon as I saw them. I have been very happy with them. It surprises me that somehow the shape makes it seem as though my teapot is giving me more tea than before! The brown back-ton...(more)

Hibiki-an, you did it again with another outstanding snack! If you love yams or sweet potato you should love this snack. Very lightly sweetened, these irregular 1/2-3/4 inch cubes seem more substantial when eating than you would expect. I find them perfect, they ...(more)

I buy the Matcha and Genmai Senbei as often as I can. Originally I purchased these for the Matcha Senbei, as I love Matcha flavoured snacks, and these did not disappoint. They are a wonderful snack to have with whatever tea you are having. Sweet but not too sweet, Match...(more)

I have been enjoying this cup for several months. The lovely glaze keeps me intrigued...if you like to dream a bit about snow covered mountains, or crackling ice or maybe dancing ravens,or simply beautiful abstract looks, this glaze will satisfy you. The lovely blue tin...(more)

I was gifted this beautiful bowl last December and it immediately became my favorite matcha bowl. It gives me great pleasure to be able to enjoy my matcha in it every morning. The raised texture of the white stems and Hagi leaves is so nice to feel, and the shape of the...(more)

These came today along with my premium matcha and really go well together. The description of the two kinds of Karintoh is very accurate but it is always difficult to describe a flavor. I will just say they are delicious and I hope to get more before they are out of ...(more)

I am just in love with this tea. Fukamushi's are my favorite senchas and to find one that tastes this great with what I would call an everyday price is perfect. This is now on my "must always have on hand" list...and it being so good makes me want to try t...(more)

I studied the looks of this teapot for some time and was unsure whether I liked the handle shape. Finally I bought it for the size and that it was eartheware as well as the light green-umber tone of the glaze. Like other reviewers, it stole my heart by its (to me anyway...(more)

I had to try this right away. You know, all those cool and refreshing looking summer treats to have with matcha that are hard to come by outside of Japan? This is one! The clear gelatin does drip a bit of water when opened so hold by a waste basket but the inside is ...(more)

Kuro-Raku is a great choice for your matcha bowl. I was worried I wouldn't like the red in the thicker glaze but it is wonderful and retains a look from the kiln of burning embers glowing under black spent wood, as you move the bowl to look at it. The size is generous a...(more)

I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the Okaki Set. We and a friend enjoyed each taste together with Premium Sencha and we all said we liked 2 best of all...the Maple and the Charbroiled Savor. Also loved the others. The taste is so superior to packaged snack okaki...(more)
