The characteristic of Hasami Yaki ware is the beauty of white porcelain and the delicate technique of dyeing with pictures in zaffer glaze, which is indigo blue. This style of ceramics was traditionally common for daily use tableware in Japan, and is becoming very popular again in recent years.
If you have this Strainer Mug, you can enjoy Japanese green tea anywhere without teapots and tea cups. It has a lid, which is convenient to steam the tea leaves during brewing, keep the tea warm, and use as a saucer to place the strainer upon while not in use. This is perfect for brewing genuine Japanese green tea at home and at the office.
Our strainer is made of stainless steel, so that it is strong against rust and should last a long time. It has fine mesh, so it brews all kind of tea very well. Its columnar shape and wide bottom create enough space so the tea leaves can fully expand during brewing to flavor the tea, providing almost the same taste as brewing by Kyusu teapot. It has a handle, which makes it very easy to use. You can remove the tea leaves by simply rinsing with water.
Please enjoy your everyday green tea time with our KIKU MON Strainer Mug which helps you to brew green tea flavorfully anytime, anywhere.
