I love my tiny teapot!
The teapot nozzle won’t drip tea back down on body after pouring tea. I don’t know why so many teapot out there can’t meet this minimum requirement. This one works perfectly, won’t drip. Cute and perfect round body.
This is the perfect tea pot for loose leaf tea. It makes a generous full mug of tea with a little extra to top off your cup. I first purchased one for myself and have since purchased 2 more for gifts. It is also beautiful and great at keeping the tea hot.
The export of Japanese ware from the Imari region to the rest of the world began during the latter half of the 17thcentury. At the time, because the port from which such ware was shipped was called “Imari,” the general term for pottery exported from Imari became “Imari ware,” a name that ultimately became widely known overseas.
Outside of Japan, “Nabeshima ware” made in the Imari region is often called “Imari ware.” However, even among the various types of Imari ware, Nabeshima ware occupies a special place because during the Edo Period, it was made specifically as gifts presented only to shoguns and feudal lords. For this reason, only genuinely talented craftsmen were chosen to create Nabeshima ware, using undisclosed techniques in secret kilns. Embodying such traditions and techniques that have been carried on to this day, Nabeshima ware is said to be the most exquisite kind of porcelain in Japan, with an elegance and refinement fit for nobility.
