This Japanese craft piece embodies nature at its finest. It feels as if Mr. Ito carved this unique teapot from a piece of stone. Rich in simplicity.

One of Japan’s most dynamic potters, oiginally from Tokoname, Mr. Ito still retains his inner fire for design after 40 years work.

Second generation in ceramics, he has specialized in the art of teapot crafting. He controls every stage of the process: from the sourcing of the land for the clay to the final finishing. Firing with either gas or electricity for the desired result.

Mr. Ito also actively participates in various monthly creative meetings with other craftsmen - a true artist in constant evolution.

Each handcrafted piece is unique and has been catalogued separately to ensure that the piece you see is the piece you get.

Kamairicha Organic

From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this 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. 

Sencha Mobata

Made in the traditional style of Shizuoka (Japan), this Sencha is one of our best sellers, year after year. 

Previously tended by the late M. Sugiyama, the family gardens are now under the supervision of his wife and son who proudly carry on the passion for the craft. 

Brisk and bold, this tea carries in the mouth a strong vegetal taste with a slight bitterness and a pleasant floral finish, it is an excellent daily companion.
