This cup was designed by the Camellia Sinensis team in partnership with a ceramic workshop in Taiwan. Made of porcelain, the pure white glazed interior finish is perfect to enhance the colour of the liquor of either an entire gaiwan infuson or a shared teapot. An elegant everyday accessory with its pleasing curves and practical size.
Kyusu from Gyokko | KaisouGyokko Collection
At the venerable age of 80, Japanese ceramist Gyokko is still an active artist whose energy do not seem to fade. He manages to keep in artistic vision: offering teapots that are both affordable, artisanal and complex.
Supported by his son and a few other artisans under his guidance, Gyokko specializes in affordable teapots: "My objective is to work together as a team in order to offer handmade teapots to everyone. I really believe that Japanese tea offers its full potential in this type of teapot."
Made with local clay from the coastal town of Tokoname, the teapot is not glazed thus the interior is slightly porous. We love the result: as authentic as the craftsman that created it.
Diameter of the opening: 5 cm
Height: 7 cm

It was in a teahouse in Japan that the potter Julie Lavoie discovered Tenmoku. On seeing the works of Kamada Koji for the first time, she was inspired by the 'starry skies' effect, unique to this glaze. Like a premonition, this idea of meteors had already appeared in her work before this journey.
Laval ceramist Catherine De Abreu advocates a contemporary approach to the objects she creates.
This teapot was designed by the Camellia Sinensis team in partnership with a ceramics workshop in Taiwan. Made of porcelain, this glossy teapot is an ideal volume for 2 people. The fine stainless steel filter permits infusions different families of tea. Its deep basket gives the option to make a good cup of tea for one person without using the full volume of the teapot.
