Available from May 12th, while supplies last.
A set combining Japanese tea in season with a meticulously designed and crafted kyusu.
The tea harvest begins in early May, traditionally on the eighty-eighth day of spring, when summer is approaching. This timing is immortalized in a popular song. The flavour of the first leaves to be picked each year is delicious and very special. These leaves are the result of the tea merchant's accumulated efforts.

It Excellent at expressing delicate tastes
Lightweight, readily following hand movements. This size almost guarantees clear expression of the delicate flavours of gyokuro and sencha.
Pours out every last drop
The kyusu is small, but the strainer inside has a large number of holes. Easily pours out the very last drop and the condensed flavour that it contains.
Visibility inside the kyusu is good, making it easy to clean out all the used tea leaves
The inside of the teapot has a light-coloured glaze. It's easy to see the tea leaves and easy to clean up afterwards.
