I was very hesitant to order this because it was pricey. I am so glad that I took the plunge. Currently I use this for iced tea and I cannot praise it enough. I use the ice tea method of making strong hot tea and pouring it over a glass filled with ice cubes. I ...(more)

This is my alltime favorite Kyusu and Yunomi set. As others have stated, I love the pure white modern simplicity that shows off the green tea. A few tea leaves do escape into the cup which just adds to the experience. I have found that this Kyusu is much quicker to co...(more)

If you are a matcha lover like me, do not hesitate to purchase this chawan. It has a substantial feel and I love the wabi-sabi character of this bowl. Previously I used the porcelaine chawan from Hibiki-an which was fine as a beginning chawan. However, the Beedoro adds ...(more)

This is my second time purchasing these crackers. The directions say they have the best flavor if consumed before 4 months -- I'm lucky if they last 4 days! The matcha senbei is more subtle and the genmai senbei is more sweet. They are both the exquisite complement to H...(more)

I cannot say enough about Sencha Superior. It puts to shame any sencha that I previously tried from other sources. The perfect blend of "grassy" and "sweet". For me, this makes tea drinking a relaxing and meditative experience. Hibiki-An is a wonderf...(more)
