This lovely Arita-yaki teapot has tiny red flowers on white porcelain. It can fill in about three teacups of premium sencha. A stainless steel mesh strainer is placed inside a teapot to catch loose tea leaves.
Teacups with same design are available. See those products on http://okeisan.com.au/collections/teapots-and-teacups/products/teacup-red-flowers-white
Arita-yaki (Aritaware) is porcelain produced in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture. In 1616 a Korean potter discovered argil in Arita and the discovery contributed to start Japanese porcelain history.
Before using this product for the first time, wash lightly using a soft sponge in lukewarm water.
Our teapots and teacups are durable; however, teapots are recommended to wash by hand.
