Japanese Tea set

There is no manual for choosing the right Japanese teapot. The right teapot for you is the one that fits your lifestyle or simply feels right in your hands. Basically, premium green teas are enjoyed in small amounts with small cups. Therefore, small teapots will be good for fine quality teas. On the other hand, big teapots are often preferred for the teas brewed with hotter water and served in large amounts, like Hojicha or Genmaicha.

Of course, functionality is important for a teapot, even though the design is a huge factor in your sophisticated tea time. We introduce the well-designed Japanese teapots to satisfy your needs in design.

Quick guide of naming:

There are several different types of tea pots and cups made in Japan. 

Wafuu-honpo calls traditional Japanese Kyūsu with straight side handles "Kyūsu-Teapot", and kettle style pots with a handle on the top "Dobin-Teapot", short cups "sencha-cup", tall cups "yunomi-cup", and big matcha cups "Matcha tea bowl".


Sencha-cups are often used with saucers at formal occasions. However, these rules are not always followed. Nowadays, people's preferences have become more diverse. Some people use mug cups or bigger sizes of sencha cups for green tea these days.
We at wafuu-honpo Tea selected contemporary Japanese tea cups, which can create Japanese style on your table with modern looks.
