Japanese Teawares

 
Japanese teawares are uniquely Japanese. From the side-handled Kyushu teapots to low, wide-bodied matcha bowls, Japanese teawares are a study in contrast and usage.

Pieces can be smooth or rustic; sometimes brooding or light and carefree in tone; sometimes tiny or sometimes quite large - selecting an appropriate tea vessel for a particular tea preparation can be challenging to beginners. For many,  Japanese teawares become the foundation of a tea wares collection that represents a world of styles, colors, shapes, textures and uses.

All of our Japanese teawares are imported by us from Japan.
