The 400 year old Asahiyaki kiln in Uji, Kyoto has specialised in Sencha utensils since the 19th century when interest in loose leaf tea began to grow in Japan. Asahiyaki are known for their delicately coloured porcelains and handleless Hōhin teapots that have long been de rigueur in Kyoto for serving fine Gyokuro.
For over a hundred years, the Japanese woodworking house Gato Mikio has been producing quality handcrafted lacquerware in Yamanaka, Ishikawa prefecture – an area with a long Urushi tradition. Add a warm and modern touch to your teatime with these elegant, minimalist cups.
