Essential Tea Set

US$51.00

Review This is a fairly basic kyusu for everyday use. If you are looking for something more out of ordinary, I suggest you to have a look at other teapots on the site.

That being said, I really like it: it is perfectly functional and is offered at a great price. The flow is rapid, the lid fits well, the mesh inside it super–functional. I've used it for many different teas and it retains heat well enough for, say, black teas.

Yunomi are great too – I would say, a step above the kyusu. Not hand painted but quite handsome and very well made. Again, the site offers a great selection of yunomi if you are looking for something more spectacular.

Overall a great "starter set" for lovers of Japanese teas. Don't forget to get some teas too!

Special note: people at Hibiki-An do amazing job packaging the parcels, kudos to them!
