I drink so much tea that I need more than one infuser. These fine mesh infusers are sturdy and practical. I use a fine mesh infuser in all of my tea pots even those with their own. No more needing to make certain that my teapots are free of old tea leaves and that the c...(more)

Never before have I had such an incredible experience with a confectionery. I am used to the American overly sweet things which are hardly satisfying to the palate. Ohigashi is something to be savored and enjoyed with Matcha or any high quality green tea. The sweet is s...(more)

I purchased the Yuzamashi along with the Kyusu over a year ago. AFter doing my research and weighing my options, I chose to purchase them both so that I could get a "perfect" cup of tea. The process of putting the boiling water into the Yuzamashi does help b...(more)
