Hagi Cup from Mr. Nakahara | NatsuMr. Nakahara Collection
The City of Hagi is famous for its ceramic teaware, a speciality that emerged there in the seventeenth century with the arrival of potters from Korea.
Our pieces come directly from Mr. Nakahara's workshop, a potter for over thirty years. The artist masters various styles typical to the region.
Fine cracks will gradually reveal themselves once they have absorbed some tannins. Let us consider these unique potteries as living objects!
This collector's item comes with a wooden box signed by the artist. Look after it. The ensemble could well appreciate in value over the years.

Kyusu from Mr. Yamada | Mangetsu
There are a rare few adamant potters in Tokoname that still insist on mastering every step of the artisanal process, taking it as far as making their own clay. Yamada is one of these potters.
Sencha Tatsuyama Organic
From the great prefecture of Shizuoka (Japan), this is an ideal green tea for Sencha lovers, with its notable flavours of vegetables and savoury broth.
From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this green tea is produced by pan-fried method (kamairi), instead of the conventional Japanese method of steaming. This style of transformation gives a particular balance between bitterness and sweetness, exempt from the typical astringency found in Sencha style teas.
Gyokuro Shizuoka Organic (75g bag)
The Okabe farmers cooperative in Japan offers us this green tea in the Gyokuro style produced following the covered method of cultivation giving it its characteristic taste from shade.
